While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday and the most delicious finds on TV.

Just when we thought we were finally coming down from our Halloween sugar high, we up and found out November 4 is National Candy Day. It's a cruel, cruel world - and by cruel, we mean freaking sweet.

Go on, don't be shy this morning: treat yourself to malt balls, gummi worms, caramel chews or any other sugary confection of your choosing for that matter - it's the true breakfast of champions.

What's on TV?

"America's Test Kitchen" - PBS, 1 p.m. ET
The plat du jour?: Roast salted turkey and green beans. Gobble gobble!

"Top Chef: Just Desserts" - Bravo, 7 p.m. ET
In case you missed last night's premiere: The five remaining pastry chefs construct desserts for a magazine-sponsored get-together.

"Man v. Food" - Travel Channel, 8 p.m. ET
Adam Richman eats his way through monstrous burgers and hot dogs at three different baseball stadiums.

"Food Feuds" - Food Network, 10 p.m. ET
Michael Symon sets out to settle a burger battle in New Jersey and a fried bird fuss in Ohio.

    haha this makes me laugh because I've done the very same thing...try playing typing games...that really makes you look busy. I have to look busy all the time b/c I have patients staring at me all day long. I go home feeling very deceitful at the end of the day.

      Logical thinking would infer that You are a Medical Professional.
      #1.You work in an Doctors office.
      #2-You work in an Dentists office.
      #3-Which I have 50 Klingon Depris to put on this bet-A Proctologists office,which is why Jdizzle has a furrowed brow.

    I have to say I actually posted the first 3 comments on my Facebook page (sans names). I laughed when I saw the first conversation after this article was about the game Sunday night. Thanks for the laughs during my lunch break! Go PACK!!

      Football is Not a laughing game-unless you're on Nationwide T.V. and playing Dallas!

      Facebook is a very liberal website. Twaddle is even worse.

        I Joke. X)

        No, I don't work. I just type away on Eatocracy and it makes me look busy to my boss. I even furrow my brow sometimes to make it look like I'm answering a very important e-mail.

    Another beautiful day in Texas. The Big German-Dirk put a shellacking on Denver last nite. Danica Patrick and Nascar are in the D-FW area this weekend. We are a Sports Mecca this weekend until-7:20 p.m. cst Sunday nite when we again get embarrassed on Nationwide T.V. as our Pee-Wee football team takes on Green Bay. What's the forecast weather wise in GB-Jdizz for Sunday? How many body bags should we send up?

    November 4, 2010 at 9:41 am |
    • Jdizzle McHammerpants

      A few clouds. Highs in the low 50s and lows in the mid 30s.

      53 body bags will be needed.

      November 4, 2010 at 9:45 am |
      • RichardHead

        I'll send 54. Maybe Jerry Jones will commit Hari-Kari live on T.V.

      I love TX, with the exception of your football team...Used to go to Houston for my job and LOVED Minute Maid Park...My guess is that it will be GB 42, DAL 3...And Wade going 4/4 on excuses like he used to in DEN.

      November 4, 2010 at 9:49 am |
      • RichardHead

        That;s 3 more than I was going to give 'em! Minute Maid is a cool park with the train and the BIG center field.I try to go each year when The Rangers play them for The Silver Boot.

        I could not believe that a ballpark was actually air conditioned, even given the retractable roof. The energy bill for that place must be a dang fortune.

        That's how we roll in the US.

      • RichardHead@Truth

        They actually consult a weatherman at one of the local stations as to whether to keep the roof open or closed. It's nice in September because after the games they open up the roof and shoot off fireworks to rock music.
