Secret lives of Swedish Fish and other candy-coated oddities

My opinion? Our candy-intoxicating, Swedish Fish friends are planning a massive hostile take over. They're tired of being stuck between the cheap theater seats of our local cinemas, forced to watch the crappy acting of Matthew McConaughey. They are sick of being squished and morphed on the sidewalks of busy inner-city streets. Hell, I would be too.

But in all seriousness, I imagine that candy life must be pretty sweet. (please ignore the vomit inducing cheesy cliché). So, here are some sweet songs for your sweet tooth
