For as long as I can remember, deviled eggs have been one of my absolute favorite foods. Maybe it’s my Southern roots. I still remember sitting on the beach as a little girl, watching anxiously as my mom pulled the rectangular plastic container of delectable deviled eggs out of the bright red ice chest. Cholesterol wasn’t in the dietary vocabulary then and I just LOVED deviled eggs! Now I know the challenges with munching on too many pieces as a snack. The whites are jammed with lean protein but the yolks come with a little too much cholesterol for snack status. Add the salt from typical jarred mustard and the sprinkled-in salt, along with fat from standard mayo and all of a sudden you can’t munch on those creamy deviled eggs quite as freely as you might like.

Candy Rush is Not Just For Easter

Candy wall - Allana

By: Allana Mortell

With all this talk of Easter candy, it’s often hard to find any talk about something other than Hershey Kisses and chocolate bunnies. With the recent rise of artisanal treats, it ‘s great to find something like a candy shop that can offer up goods besides the generic plastic wrapped candy found at the counter of a convenience store. Enter: “The Candy Rush”, in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.

For me, the mark of a successful business is not just producing great products but about providing a one-of-a-kind experience to customers. The folks behind The Candy Rush delivered on every possible level. From the customer service to the decor and pure sugar overload (in a good way), I left feeling happy and excited to plan my next trip back!

The Candy Rush opened last summer with much acclaimed praise from residents of Crown Heights as well as Prospect Heights. Walking into the shop, you truly feel transported back to your childhood, a feeling I’m sure the owners wanted to evoke for their loyal customers. Immediately, your eyes are drawn to the left wall where from floor to ceiling are seven rows of … you guessed it, candy! Read More
