Write Your Wish on Times Square Confetti, Thanks to Weird New Candy
From 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Times Square Information Center, or anytime online, you may go to the "Wishing Wall" and submit a hope, dream, yearning, etc., which will then be printed on one of the thousands of paper fragments that will be dropped on the crowds at midnight, December 31. (We have successfully submitted our own: "The man next to you is a terrorist. Kill him.")
The stunt is a promotion for the new 3 Musketeers candy bar, 3 Musketeers Mint, which the press release assures us has "45 percent less fat" than ordinary bars and "makes it easy to keep that New Year's resolution" -- presumably about losing weight, which we don't doubt, as even the mere description of 3 Musketeers Mint ("mint nougat dipped in luscious dark chocolate") effectively suppresses our appetite for candy or anything else.
