When I was in high school, I loved going to the local farmer’s market because they had the most amazing caramel corn. They sold them in bags of $2, $4, and $6, and I always had to beg my mom for the $6 bag. She’d cave in time to time and then I’d finish the entire XL bag by the time we got home. It wasn’t a pretty sight to say the least. It would then be weeks until we could visit the farmer’s market again where I would drown myself in that dreamy caramel corn.
