“One of my fondest memories as a small boy was going for long walks around the neighbourhood with my grandma. She would always carry her purse with her and I knew that’s where she kept her candy (for me). After asking politely, I’d rummage through her bottomless bag in search of buried treasure. It seems fitting that finding the candy was always a gamble, as my grandma loved playing the slot machines (especially those gnarly, but harmless apps on the iPad).

Most of the time I found bobby pins, lipstick and old grocery receipts. There was also the occasional Kopiko coffee candies that I hated! However, every so often... Ding, ding, ding! Jackpot. I’d get lucky and find Amira Tamarind Candy. The taste brings me back to simpler times; listening to grandma’s stories and advice, promising her I’d become rich and take her on fancy holidays when I was older, and day-dreaming about being a Power Ranger.”
