My obsession with candy has turned into an obsession with sweets over the past few months. I know have a passion for slushies, drinks, ice cream, milkshakes and candy. I love including candy in all my creations. I sometimes compare candy to people. Some are perfect for your preference and some are just a little too bitter. You sometimes need to have a balance in your life. I prefer candy more than chocolate because all chocolate is starting to taste the same to me. There is no longer diversity.
I like trying new flavors of candy and ice cream – I love mixing the two. I think guava has to be my favorite flavor. I love seeing the way candy is made all over the world. It’s just so diverse and authentic. I can watch people make candy for hours.
I love mixing different flavoured slushies. It’s so fascinating watch the colors mix; I get my inspiration from videos on YouTube. When I’m older I hope to change the industry forever by making newer, wilder flavors and creations. I just can’t wait, and I’m so motivated to make a change. I hope to own my own factory or company so that I can change the overuse of artificial sweeteners, colours, and flavours.
I just love the variety of flavours, the way the colors mix, and what you can add to it. I love everything sweet. I love making candy in my spare time. I’m even debating whether or not I should start selling candy. I know it’s a big task but I’m just so happy when I am surrounded by candy. I would love to be the next generation Willy Wonka; after all, someone has to carry on his legacy.
