First, we tried out candy buttons, those delightful, rainbow-colored sugary dots that come on a strip of paper. You can buy a box of them HERE on Amazon OR you can make your own by clicking HERE! (The make your own recipe features meringue instead of cornstarch, which could taste better than the store-bought version!)
Then, we talk all things GI Joe!
