"The gold ones are delicious." —J.M.

When I first became a teacher, I set out to encourage good habits and to be an example of sound nutrition. However, what they never tell you in credentialing programs is that teens will do almost anything for a bit of concentrated sugar in a shiny wrapper. This includes picking up trash someone else dropped, behaving like Stepford children at assemblies, acting very interested in the finer points of English grammar, and practically begging like whimpering Labrador retrievers to start even mundane assignments that otherwise would produce a classwide catatonic state . This bag, ladies and gentlemen, holds magic.
