piranha - love me some lollipops.

Here to get your jollies?

Earlier this year, the CEO decided that we should keep a bowl of candy on the front desk.  Since they're inexpensive, we've been keeping the bowl filled with Jolly Ranchers.  Personally, I think that these candies are gross, but they've prove quite popular with the very young and the very old.

Today, one of those very old residents came in...

Resident: Can I have a candy?
Me: Sure!
Resident; It's really very good candy.
Me:They do seem to be quite popular.
Resident: It's very sour.

Now I am very confused.  Jolly Ranchers are many things - artificial-tasting, syrupy, vaguely fruity - but sour is not a word I would ever use to describe them.  However, there is a green apple flavor, so I think that perhaps she's thinking of that one.

Me: You mean the green ones?
Resident; Mm-hmm!

She then proceeds to pick out a handful of red candies and walks out.
