Cause it's filled with M&M's, skittles, nerds, licorice, smarties... you name it, it's probably in there.
Now, you may be asking yourself : WHY?? Why in the world do you have a big ol bucket filled with THAT MUCH CANDY?? My answer: We just don't eat a lot of candy. So, we buy some, eat a little and then it just sits around. Eventually, I throw it in the bucket. Then, when we need a little sugar high, we pull it out. Sometimes I will pull it out to decorate a cake or something like that. But mostly, the big, white bucket just sits in the pantry. "Sweet" don't ya think?
