The Candy Man

“Who can take the sunrise,  Sprinkle it with dew
Cover it with chocolate and a miracle or two
The Candy Man, oh the Candy Man can”

I think we found the Moroccan version of the Candy Man at our local park. Carrying around a big stick of hard candy, the Man stops when children bearing small coins surround him and cuts off a chunk with a sharp knife. My kids stood in line too. Candy in hand, I could only see their smile for an instant before they popped it in their mouths. Their faces were pained when they tried to bite it. This stuff was so dense, you could only lick it!
