The theme this week by Chris is "Confectionery" Mac, Chris,Kathy, Rich  and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that. Mac is on holiday again so won't be posting this week.

This week I'm sure Chris and the people in England have a different take. When I think of this subject I think of sugar. The confectionery sugar or candy. All of our candy comes from the grocery store. Here are some photos of candy and sugar displays.  These are the boxed confectioners sugar
and the bagged type.
We do have a lot of candy choices.
There are also displays for Halloween candy.
And I decided to use this display of confectionery with a big spider. 
See what the others have to show at the above links.

Hope you've still got some teeth left after eating all those sweets and sugar.

I bet there wasn't too many people taking bags of sweets that are being guarded by that giant spider.

Good grief, that's a lot of candy! We have nothing like that on this side of the pond, well, nothing I'VE ever seen. In our supermarkets we have maybe one aisle for sweets and chocolates and that's usually quite a small selection. Amazing! I Like the huge spider atop the mountain of candy.

Candy corn! My all time favorite! Word verification is even harder on a kindle.

I love candy corn! That big, black and hairy spider is a good addition to the Halloween candy display.

Wow, that's a boatload of candy!! One of my sons saved his Halloween candy one year. After his friends had finished eating their candy, he used his for trading, and even found a way to use it to collect donations for a favorite missionary. I was a proud poppa when my little guy presented his gift to the missions team. They even brought him up on the platform while they were being commissioned.

The U.S. Army gave me meals in a box made from cardboard and called it "C-Rations." In the box was usually something like a small can of beef stew and something else you were supposed to eat. But there was always a pack of cigarettes and a candy bar. A lot of soldiers picked up the nicotine habit with the free cigarettes and a lot of soldiers picked up the chocolate habit. I never had a tooth cavity until I was being mustered out of the service and had to undergo a physical exam. The doctor who did my teeth, said, "You got a cavity." And then filled it. I never will forget him or that cavity because I saw his concentration camp number tattooed on his forearm and he told me, "Yes," he got it at some Nazi concentration camp where he also worked on teeth without the tools required, of course. Anyway, I like your sweet photography and much of it looks familiar to me. I have a roll about the middle attributed to it.
