The sweets:
power bars? chocolate bars? something else involving chocolate? jelly bears? crisps? toffees? cookies? ice cream?
Do they come in different flavours?

Does the other person do something else with the sweets? Does he/she eat them in a very specific way ("first, you have to eat all the chocolate covering, then the caramel, and then enjoy the cookie")?

***************SPOILER*********************

Inmate Donny Johnson, serving three life terms in solitary confinement at the Pelican Bay State Prison in California, was the beneficiary of a showing of his acclaimed paintings at a gallery in the Mexican tourist village of San Miguel de Allende. Because of Johnson's isolation, his only "brush" is made from strands of his own hair; his "canvases" consist of blank postcards; and his medium is colors from melted M&M candies. Nonetheless, at least six of the paintings, which a Times reporter called "powerful," have sold for $500 each. [New York Times, 7-21-06]
