What is a grimace?

An expression of pain taking over a face

A distorted smile ~ a wry show of amusement

A frown of distaste or scowl of disgust

    • Dear Rochelle,

      Aren’t they great? Oh man to watch them as the candy got more and more sour before becoming sweet was a treat!
      Glad you enjoyed my words.

      Shalom and lotsa love,



    • I loved Sweet-Tarts – but lemme tell you, they mild compared to these crazy Warheads – probably something similar to Zotz.
      Thank you. So glad you liked.

  1. Q,

    I was never much for sour candy. My jam was anything vice- like the liquor bottles filled with straight up syrup or the candy cigarettes. Of course. I miss those very un-PC days when kids had to figure out this stuff for themselves. Or not.

    Sour candy IS grimace worthy, so excellent call on this challenge. What is it about human nature that makes you want to partake in something to which you know ahead of time you’re gonna grimace the hell out of? But we do it.

    You done did it in 33 words. No grimacing that fact.

  2. grimace – always a negative connotation for me – sour, unpleasant, eeewk(y), bitter, should it be perceived as positive, it’s not a grimace 🙂
