Chimes Ginger Chews

I have already professed my love for all things ginger in another blog post from August... (http://dreamshappythings.blogspot.com/2010/08/ginger.html) but for some reason I left out these scrumptious ginger chews.  I bought them on a whim at Cost Plus, because I liked the look of the packaging- they come in a cute little tin about the size of a pack of cigarettes with fun colors and slide off top.  I have saved my tins and I am trying to find a way to reuse them.  Laura suggests a place to keep bobby pins and so far that's the best idea I've heard.  Inside the tin, there are a few dozen individually wrapped candies.  They are spicy and chewy and have a crystalized sugar taste that I am addicted to.  I love the orange flavored ones but they are harder to find.  The mango flavor is great too.  They boast that they have energizing properties- and these days I need all the energy I can get!
