Candy-coated money-maker

So I was just sitting here thinking about how we finally finished all the Christmas candy and now Valentine's Day is right around the corner, which generally speaking means more candy. That got me to thinking about Easter which is a month after that ... which got me to thinking about where does this madness start -- Halloween! Americans start their sugar buzz in October with Halloween and go right through to Easter with a steady supply of sugar, courtesy corporate America. It could be argued that Memorial Day presents another opportunity for "holiday-themed" candy, although not nearly to the extent of the other holidays.

No wonder people have so much trouble with sticking to their diets.
