I can't explain it in any way, but the candy hearts are my favorite. Not the stupid new ones that got rid of the chalky texture and "refreshed" the flavors. No, give me the chalky, original,  traditional ones. Mmm. I could eat a whole bag. I don't know why I like them but despise Tums.

I am as cheap as a Duggar used to be, and love chocolate, so I do really like the day after Valentine's Candy sales.  😅

In early February many people bemoan the impending VD (Valentine's Day) and not being able to participate because they don't have a Valentine. I always tell them to ignore February 14th and focus on observing February 15th - Half Priced Chocolate Day!

I like the way you think!

I get it.  I mean I don't get enjoying candy that tastes like globs of paste, but liking weird candy.

I miss tootsie rolls.   I also sometimes miss this coconut rectangle thing that was pink, white and brown striped.  My mom used to get it from those bins they used to have at the grocery stores and I have no idea what they're called.

Should have googled.  They are both yummy and gross, do they still make these?

I think they might be called Neapolitan’s. 
 

I buy candy for everyone. Throw that shit around, spread love. When I worked in a hospital emergency room I loved to have put a bowl of candy and count how many people said, exactly, “ooh! Candy!” before leaving with a piece. It was like a stupid human trick, but a win/win.

I much prefer Galentine’s day over Valentine’s Day. And I’m married! I see my husband every day. I hardly ever get to see my girlfriends. So it’s better.

When it comes to cheap candy, nothing beats candy corn in my view. I could make myself sick on them.

Now I'm craving sugar.  If I break down and make brownies I'm blaming you all.

I worked at a pizza place and the boss INSISTED on writing "Happy VD" on the changeable letter sign out front.  I remember walking in and he yelled "Hey Guinea Pig! Happy VD!" across the restaurant at me.  So awkward. 😕

I’m going to have to blame FJ for this ad for a Valentines Day card showing up for me on Facebook.

Sad to report Brach's doesn't.  They are called Neopolitan Coconut Candy and there are other versions. You might find them at the Vermont Country Store or on Amazon.

I used to get those at the grocery store... Our store had a bulk candy section, with a box you dropped a dime in for a sample, and my mom used to let my sister and I get a piece when we went shopping.... That's a memory I didn't know I forgot :)

I will confess that I stole a piece or two of this particular candy when I was perhaps 6 or 7 years old.  It was soooo tempting, just right within reach in an open bin at the check out counter.  My mom would be distracted with putting the groceries on the counter to be rung up and my sly self would pocket a piece of candy (to be surreptitiously eaten on the way home - no fear my mom would notice because she always kept both hands on the wheel and her eyes firmly fixed on the road ahead).

I love those! There is a candy bar I have had that is the same concept. I can't recall the name but you can find it in dedicated candy stores that sell hard to find candy. 

Found them.... Candy Farm 3 Color coconut. Amazon has them.

Gabrielle Patton has been posting photos to Instagram of her recent vow renewal, where Anna, Joy, and Abbie were bridesmaids. She's gone private so I won't post them here, but screenshots have been uploaded to Reddit and Abbie looks pregnant in them (second photo).

It always fascinates me to see which combinations of Duggar’s are friends with outside folk. Like how did Lauren end up at the Nathan ? Bates and Pest jailer weddings? Joy and Abbie hanging out so much seems kind of strange at first thought - doesn’t seem like JD and much younger Joy would have bonded much - but JD and Austin I can see being buddies, and the 4 of them liking similar outdoorsy things - but how the f does Anna play into that? I’m so nosy!

I bet a lot of it depends on how close they live to each other, whether they attend the same church, and how close in age their kids are. If you're neighbors with someone or see them at church multiple times a week (they all seem to go on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings) then you're more likely to make plans and have playdates.

There's also a third photo posted later which shows- horror of horror- Joy and Austin dancing- to quote " the best DJ ever!"

Perhaps someone slipped a half bottle of vodka in the punch

I think part of it is the husbands as well. If my husband gets along well with the husband of a friend of mine, we hang out more as a group.

Per Reddit, the dancing started after JB, M and Anna left.  Reddit further speculated the crowd dancing with the DJ was either doing the Cupid Shuffle or the Cha-Cha Slide.
