I need a candy connection... fast!

Since I've quit smoking I've taken to chewing Skittles Bubble Gum as a replacement. Any variety is okay. I want to buy it it by the case and not get hosed on shipping like the on-line 'distributors' do.

Does anyone here have access to this at a decent price? C'mon help a sister out.

Once you are over the smoking, are we going to have to work on getting you off the Skittles Bubble Gum?

But....that being said, it was only a joke.

I am not sure that Stacey has a soul, so this might not be a problem.

I'm not seeing the 14/$14. Depending on where I go... $0.75 to $1.00 a pack.

I was hoping we had a fooster that worked in candy wholesale or maybe retail and could pass on some savings.

Here is a place with free shipping. You have to buy 4 boxes of 14, but it works out to $.58/pack.

4 box/14each = 56 packs for $32.48

$7.75 per pack of 14 at Amazon. (Works out to about $0.55/pack)

I think you can get free shipping if your order is $25 or more.

I am not touchy, I might even sit back in my comfy office chair, prop my feet up on my desk and have a nice, cool, refreshing smoke.
