Leftover Candy

Brad emptied out his bag of candy from last night.  After doing this, an enormous pile of various candy sat there, waiting to be eaten.

The candy that sat there was not just the average Tootsie roll or Milk Dud.  It was all the good candy.  There was, of course, 3 Musketeers and Baby Ruth.  There was a couple of mini York Peppermint Patties.  The most common candy was M&M’s.  Brad had at least one bag of every kind.  Plain, Peanut, Almond, Pretzel and Crispy all in fun-sized bags.  He even had plain and peanut in regular bags.  Brad loved M&M’s, but there was, however, a candy that he loved even more….

Gleaning through the pile, Brad found more treasures.  At least eight fun-sized Snickers bars, a regular sized Snicker bar, and a king-sized Snicker bar.  Brad then found his favorite: A monster-sized Butterfinger.  The offspring of this monster candy also sat in the pile.  At least eleven fun-sized Butterfingers.

In addition to that, there was also some other good candy.  100 Grand, Crunch bars, Hershey’s bars,  MilkyWay bars, Twix bars, Whatchamacallits, Skittles, Paydays, Jolly Ranchers, Smarties, Sweettarts, Almond Joys, Mounds, Whoppers, Tootsie Rolls, Milk Duds, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Reese’s Pieces, Starbursts and Kit-Kats.  Brad had at least one of every major candy in his pile.

As good as the other candy was, Brad gave his attention to the Butterfingers, and sorted them in their own little pile.  In addition to his candy, his mother had a bunch of leftover candy.  With the leftover candy, Brad smiled, knowing that eating all this candy was going to take a while.
