Colorado has some unique smells. Some, like the smell of roasting chiles on a crisp fall afternoon, spring in the mountains, and the one-of-a-kind smell that the Colorado mountains bring are simply intoxicating. Roasted green chile is by far one of my most favorite smells of all time. If I could bottle it up and save it, I would in a heartbeat.

I can throw it way back to when Jolly Rancher had a factory in the Wheat Ridge-Arvada area. I went to school a couple of blocks away from this factory and watermelon candy was my favorite day. I also went to school in the heart of Golden. I'll tell you more about that unique smell later on.
