I wanted to make all my readers aware that of this past Monday, October 5th, the Federal Trade Commission (F.T.C.) is requiring all bloggers as of December 1st to claim full disclosure of all their tried to advertisers and any free products we may receive.
So what does this mean to TCE? Not much, as I’ve done my best to tell you my readers whenever I’ve received samples of a particular candy. I will make an effort to make that more clear from now on. When accepting samples, I always make sure it’s a product I’m either interested in or am fairly confident that I can give a nice review to, as I really hate taking a freebie and then trashing it. I’d rather pay the money than deal with the guilt.

I know this pertains mainly to all us bloggers, but I figured you as my readers should be aware of this as well.
