For those of you who are regular readers of ThingsThatWeDo.com, you may have noticed that today’s post is arriving a little later (okay, a lot later) than usual. Reason? I uh… sort of fell asleep last night and well, didn’t wake up until this morning! Shrug. Tired parent? *raises hand*
I guess that’s to be expected given how much we all run around on a daily basis. So, yes, I fell asleep a little earlier than expected and just never got around to writing a post for today which actually works out quite well because I have a special guest writer.
*handing today’s post over* (I’m doing the typing though)
Hi, my name is Jenny. I am 8 years old. My favourite celebration is my birthday and Christmas and Halloween. I like to read and write and draw pictures. I’m funny and I like to joke around.
The topic I want to talk about is Halloween. On Halloween, I was a Sea Queen. I got a lot of candy and I’m going to talk about if the candy is appropriate to eat or not. I got a skeleton puzzle candy or actually two of them and I didn’t know if it was right to eat because some of that candy looks like it is good and it probably tastes good but it may not be good so I checked with my mom and she said I shouldn’t eat it but I could play with it. At my school there was a girl named ‘Emma’ and she was eating a skeleton puzzle too. She said it tasted really good and she said you could have one but I didn’t know if it was good to eat.
Another candy I got was a little bottle of…CANDY LOGS!?! Okay, so they weren’t actually logs but they looked good but they didn’t look right.
Okay, now I’m going to talk about…TWIZZLERS! I know a lot of people like Twizzlers because they are a very popular candy. When I was Trick or Treating, I saw Twizzlers (out of their package!) sitting on the porch. I took one to be polite but I didn’t eat it because it was in my Halloween bag. (Fun fact! Did you know that red food colouring is made out of red beetle shells?)
I got this other gummy candy and well, it looked OKAY but it was not okay because there was like, here’s the list of ingredients: sugar, glucose-fructose, modified corn starch, gelatin, mineral oil, petrolatum, carnauba wax, natural and artificial flavour, colour. Well, I don’t really don’t think there should be sugar and then sugar in the list of ingredients and the petrolatum, carnauba wax, and mineral oil, I don’t really think you should be eating that. Hands up if you agree with me!
I’m not going to mention the ones…okay maybe just one of them that I do eat. I would eat the Kit Kats. I’m not sure why, they taste good? Anyways, I hope you like this and next time I’ll see you!
