Diabetic Dream or Nightmare?? You be the judge! OR just Good Old, Goody Goody Gum Drops!
























Swirly, sugary, deliciousness......

Is it a Dialbetesalicious dream or a nightmare, or that place between awake and sleep that can go either way depending on your state of mind and if you bolused correctly.

You be the judge.

Candy Land took on a whole different meaning after my diagnoses in 78.

PS - I admit that the todays Candy Land graphics are not the ones from my childhood, (the gumdrops of my youth were spectacular) which was much more candy centric. Todays game looks to be more character focused instead of sugar. Go figure?

But u get my gist! ;)

After frightening a few readers with the latest version of the game,mostly due to the dude in the peppermint hat. I was able to locate a vintage copy of the game that was very similar to the one my family had growing up & have added it to the post. A compromise that reps all generations!

DID I NOT TELL YOU THAT THE GUM DROPS OF MY YOUTH WERE SPECTACULAR!
