You were doing your best to kick those cravings. Traded ice cream for Tasti D-Lite. Ordered many a Splenda-sweetened latte. Even switched to Stoli and sodas. But a humble (yet sublime) fried Kit Kat at the fair brought things crashing down. Next time you get the urge, reach for one of Devanie Schilpp’s candy-colored pendants. We’re already hooked on the Jolly Rancheresque designs that have us giddier than the guys in the Lollipop Guild. The charms, which come in lots of bright colors, from bottle green to electric yellow, are fired, polished, and embossed till they look good enough to eat. Making them the best sugar substitute you’ve found yet. See? There’s more than one way to lick a problem. Available at Beehive Co-Op, 1831-a Peachtree Road (404-351-1166); by appointment at Cabbagetown Clay and Glassworks, 228 Powell Street (678-778-7082 for Devanie).
