Sugar Rush in LA : Eat Your Heart Out Sweetie (Fun and Exciting LA Blog Series 9)

Sugar Rush in LA 
Eat Your Heart Out Sweetie 
(Fun and Exciting LA Blog Series 9) 

As an endocrinologist, my patients would
hate me for this post. I came to LA to attend a
convention about diabetes and insulin resistance,

…here I am- and could not resist the temptation of
the numerous candy stores at the Universal Citywalk.

…as there was a wide array of sweets and candies,

…of all kinds, all forms and sizes.

I even suspect the serpent used one of these candy coated
apples to lure Eve for a bite at the Garden of Eden.

These days the serpent has transformed itself to

…and the delightfully alluring It’Sugar.

After all the candy shopping, my son gave us
a- okay sign while guarding his bagful of loot,

…and when we got back to the hotel, we
laid down all the sweets we had bought, 

…we couldn’t get enough and didn’t know what to do,
and how begin the massive saccharine buffet in our room.

After we fired up with the very first bite on
the sweet treats, it was a virtual Sugar Rush.

It’s sometimes exciting to be
