Turns out that BlackBerries and circus peanuts have something in common

Once upon a time, circus peanuts were a popular penny candy but today, what with the zillions of (better) candy choices available to us, not so much. The same could be said for poor old BlackBerry which, not so long ago, was so popular it was known as CrackBerry. But, today, what with iPhones and Android smartphones and even Windows Phones available to us, they’re no longer such a popular item.

But, hey, just like circus peanuts, BlackBerry still has its fans. But I still wouldn’t want to find either one in my trick-or-treat bag.

I hope everyone had a great Halloween - filled with treats you actually want!
