Do you watch "Parks and Recreation?" Well you should. One of the interns at my work left the new Pawnee book on my desk today and I've been flipping through it... it's pretty amazing. Pawnee, Indiana is the town where the show is based. And the town itself is basically a character. Sort of like Springfield in "The Simpsons."

Pawnee's slogan is, "First in Friendship, Fourth in Obesity." Sweetums candy factory is hugely responsible for this. Here's a list of Sweetums candy factory's products:
