Last night I dreamed I got an AWESOME IDEA for a Milk and Cookies post: CANDY BARS. I could talk about CANDY BARS. So this morning when I went to my desk to write, I was remembering that I had a post idea ALL LINED UP. Let’s see, what was it, what was it…? …Oh.
However, I am running with it. I am fond of candy. I won’t write about candy BARS, though (except one special kind); I’ll do the candy I ask for on my wish lists.
Dilettante Bing Cherries. The photo is from Amazon.com but don’t buy them from there—that price is silly with shipping. I find them at Wallllllmart, or sometimes I see them at Home Goods or Marshalls or TJ Maxx.
See’s Candies Butterscotch Squares (photo from Sees.com). I used to have to do the custom-order box to get these, but now they’re available as a Single Flavor Favorite. That knocks a few dollars off the price, but there’s still the shipping to pay. NEVERTHELESS, they’re consistently on my wish list.
Ferrero Rocher Hazelnut Chocolates. Photo again from Amazon.com, and this time I’m not sure if that’s a decent price or not because I never EVER buy these for myself. Okay, once, when I found a smaller box at 75% off at Target. But usually NEVER. I’m setting these up with my kids as Mother’s Favorite Chocolates, so that when I am elderly and they feel guilty about not visiting/calling/texting more often, they will send me box upon box of these. Are you familiar with the goodness that is Nutella? These are FILLED WITH NUTELLA.
Lindt filled bars. Photo from Amazon.com, but I buy them at the Lindt store when they go on a “buy 3 get 1 free” sale. OH they are so delish. I like the raspberry and the orange and cherry; I haven’t yet been bold enough to try the pistachio.
Traverse Bay Chocolate-Covered Dried Cherries (photo from Amazon.com). I mentioned these just last week, and that set off such a craving I ordered a box, so I am eating them AS I WRITE.
What candies do YOU want your children to bring you in the nursing home?
