Ooops!  I attributed Pixies to "Fannie Mae" candies -- an obvious
intrusion from the financial markets. (Not that I would know much about
financial markets.  To me, the classic example of an oxymoron is an
"economic anthropologist", becaue if we knew anything about economics we
surely wouldn't be anthropologists.)

The candy people spell their company label "Fannie May".  Here's a quote
from their online ordering service:


  Send a Fannie May® favorite to all your loved ones. Pixies® have
remained our best selling candy for years -- winning every popularity
contest with the perfect taste combination of crunchy pecans and smooth,
creamy caramel -- drenched in delicious milk chocolate.


OK, Bruce, now you've seen Pixies® associated with chocolate.  Maybe
it's the pixies, not the Pixies®, who never touch the stuff.
