I'm a Phoenix native. Which, they say, is rare. Even more unusual is that I actually love this place.
There are just a handful of us out there and while there are so many things that make us uniquely Phoenician (we don't talk to our neighbors and we shower 7-12 times a week) I'm going to focus some of our fond childhood memories of growing up in the Valley.
Namely, our candy.
Everyone likes candy. Everyone likes lists. And everyone likes to reminisce.
So if this blog doesn't get more hits than my last blog, I will force myself to look in the mirror and say, "You, Lilia Menconi, you are a failure. Your dead grandparents are even embarrassed."
Anyway, here are the top five candies and sweets that only a native Phoenician can truly appreciate.
