Gentle Reader,

A quick note.

I’d like to thank everyone who participated in the “For a Good Cause Candy Box” program benefiting the Summit Speech School.

Through this program we sold $4,5000 worth of JT’s Confections with 100% of the proceeds going to the Summit Speech School. This money will positively impact the lives of many children; an impact that will change the trajectory of their lives.

On a personal note, this program had a very positive impact on my life as well. I crossed paths with unbelievable people who work at the school, people who volunteer at the school and children who attend the school.

To the wonderful women who bought chocolates during the luncheon portion of the event and created a chocolate frenzy, you made me feel like I was in a boy band. For a chubby gray haired middle aged guy with bad knees, it doesn’t get any better. 

Thanks again to everyone and I hope we are even more successful next year.

Gentle Reader,On January 22, 1973, the sports world witnessed one of the greatest upsets of all time; Joe Foreman knocked out Joe Frazier for the heavy weight boxing title in Kingston, Jamaica. Although it was arguably the biggest boxing upset of all time, it was Howard Cosell’s call of “Down goes Frazier!!” in the first round, that will forever be remembered. 

Well Gentle reader, if Howard Cosell was at the mall on March 30, 2014, he would have made similar history and yelled, “Down Goes the Easta Bunny!!” It started out innocently enough… 

JT: “Hey Easter Bunny your wife looks like she’s had a zillion kids!”
EB: “Hey JT’s you’re fat!!!”

OK, so I didn’t find out until the Easter Bunny regained consciousness that she was actually a 73 year old grandmother working the mall for extra money to pay the mortgage on the orphanage. But still….

Enough about her, if you would like to give your family or friends something really special on Easter or Passover this year, visit JTSCONFECTIONS.COM and order something from JT’s Confections.

Our handmade caramel pecan clusters, caramel filled pretzels, delicious caramels and the rest of our treats are made in small batches; they are always fresh and have NO preservatives.

As a public service announcement, most Easter and Passover candy was made before Halloween, most have more preservatives than Joan River’s face, and most use industrial dyes that are found in John Boehner’s spray on tan.

So if you would like to do something special this year for Easter or Passover, order from JT’s Confections and give your family a treat they will remember.

Thanks so much.
Your Pal and guide to a parallel universe,
