What Candies Would You Buy With $3,440?

Earlier today we came across an article that most certainly caught our attention – “12-Year-Old French Girl Writes Bad Checks For Candy and Pastries.” At first we thought it was going to be one of those stories where the child is both cute and naughty. You know, like perhaps she stole a check and bought a pack of gum and a lollipop? But this girl’s sweet tooth required much more than a pocket full of change’s worth of treats. Once her gig was officially up, she had dropped approximately $3,440 of someone else’s money on candy and pastries!

This dollar amount got us thinking about how far $3,440 would go at Blair Candy. And just for fun we decided to create a shopping list equaling roughly that amount! Below is a list made up of the Blair Candy team’s top picks. What candies would your $3,440 list contain?
