Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

If you've got a sweet tooth, you've come to the right place. Welcome to Candy Girls, where we, your faithful candy enthusiasts, Aubrey and Liz, will review a new sweet treat every Friday. We'll be on the lookout for oddball delectables, out-of-the-ordinary confections, and all those bizarre sweets you always see but hesitate to buy. In addition to checking out mainstream goods, we'll also be scouring Denver to test what local candy-makers and chocolatiers have to offer the Mile High City and surrounding areas.

We're hoping all this gorging on behalf of our candy-loving readers won't have to lead to "Stomach Crunches Wednesday" or "Jog Around the Office Monday" blog posts. Because who wants to read those?

We will be rating thusly:

1. Inedible 2. Not awful, but not worth your $1 3. Mediocre--a lazy attempt at deliciousness 4. Yummy 5. Oh my god, do these come in bulk?

Now that you're primed and ready to go, let's have at our first candy!

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
