Awesome story

In this sweet (hah) story we have a child who loves candy, which being a candy lover myself, I can totally understand.

He does not want to eat anything else and one day finds a candy store and buys a box of chocolate. In the box is one piece of chocolate which of course he eats. This starts his life where everything he tastes turns to chocolate.

This begins his learning to not want just chocolate.

I enjoyed this because of the narration. Joel Froomkin or as I know him as, Joel Leslie was perfect for this.
