Saving my nickels

With the new corporate headquarters of Brach’s Candy opening in Richardson this week, I’m saving all my nickels in hopes that they will have a sample area right there in the lobby.

Then I started thinking that, despite all the nickels I’ve saved for this occassion, I can probably count on one hand the times I’ve actually remembered to put a nickel in for the samples I’ve stolen tried. How do they ever make money on this scheme?!

All I know is any company that can make a candy orange slice and have the guts to make it look like legitimate fruit is OK by me. With 100% props and respect to Cindy, I think I’m going to download some wallpaper in honor of the new, local candy geniuses.

  1. Not in my neck of the woods. Down here you can still get samples for a nickel in a lot of the stores. At least you could a few months ago. I’m ashamed I haven’t really shopped since Thanksgiving or so.
