INCREDIBLY OBVIOUS TIPS FOR SAVING MONEY - CHEAP CANDY
This is dark chocolate, dark chocolate is supposed to be good for your heart in limited amounts. The flavonoids in the chocolate have the health charateristics, except M&M's removes all the flavanoids because it makes the chocolate taste bitter.
INCREDIBLY OBVIOUS TIPS FOR SAVING $$$ - TIP #1 CHEAP CANDY
I’m not sure if I’m addicted to chocolate, the sugar or the artificial and natural added flavors that are in most of the Hershey’s and Mars products, but I love candy. It’s an addiction millions of us share. This a very obvious tip but some people might overlook this or simply don’t care, regardless here it is, drug stores and grocery stores heavily discount candy after the holidays. Pretty simple really. Christmas of course being the most obvious, followed by Easter and all the major Presidential holidays. Since the candy is packaged in timely, special holiday packaging so once the holiday is done they have to get rid of it, to keep their stores feeling current and fresh. An especially poor time to buy left over candy is Passover. Have you ever had Kosher candy? Trust me it’s not good, it’s like dirt only with no flavor. The best stores to shop? CVS and Rite Aid, though my CVS raised the price back up to its full price before slashing the price, I caught them and called them on it and they knocked the price back down but most stores will jack the price back up before discounting it. Ralphs and Vons both do it, so they’re discounted candy is not a good deal. Also if you wait a couple days, the slash the prices even lower but your choices are less by then but you can still usually grab a few bags of snickers or M&M’s, don’t wait to long or you’ll get stuck with the weird candy, like peppermint flavor kisses and the marshmallow Easter bunnies.
