So is the Rumor True? Is Guinness…Good for You?

Just How Bad Are Those Little Candy Corns?

I started October with a vow to eat less sugar, drink more water and generally be healthier. I’m giving myself a B- overall, but I would be doing better if candy corn wasn’t dragging down my grade. My kids don’t love it, my husband doesn’t eat it, but what would Halloween be without a big […]
