Candy Failure

In True Confections, Alice makes more than one terrible mistake with candy products. She takes responsibility for neither the Bereavemints fiasco nor the regrettable packaging decisions about Little Susies. Had I glimpsed this ill-conceived gumball machine while I was writing the novel, Alice would have mentioned it as an example of mistakes made by others.


  1. Love this picture! They should have mixed in some marbles for more variety/danger.

  2. But Bereavemints were a good idea; she just didn't taste them like she said she did.

  3. She had a problem with clove oil that she did and didn't acknowledge.
