I have always loved chocolate covered peanuts….. part of a Southern tradition I think since as a kid in N. Georgia peanuts were everywhere. We even grew them in our garden (little known fact: they grow underground). I even remember the stomach aches I got from eating green peanuts. Anyway, early on I found a [...]
Zut alors!! I have found a photo of the new Mars Bar, even if I haven’t found the real thing. This photo may be of the Canadian version (those sneaks). Still searching for one to munch on myself.
Today (June 16) is National Fudge Day!! I bet you are as surprised as I was to learn that, and I’m supposed to be some kind of candy expert. I’ve already marked it on next year’s calendar so I have a little more lead time. So, you ask, what is the Elvis connection? Well, turns [...]

Found them on this website, in case you might want to try them yourself. I remember the first one [...]
Keep those Father’s Day candy gift suggestions coming in. I like the ones I have seen so far. Peanut brittle is a frequent mention. Of course, I think of the retro candies – Sky Bar, Sugar Daddy, Baby Ruth, which would have been available when my father was a boy. I remember my father as [...]
Well, it might as well be candy, tho it’s hard to carry around.
Couple suggestions have come in, responding to my request for ideas for the best Father’s Day candy, based upon old memories or recent gifts, given or received. So far, one of the faves is the old stand by, peanut brittle. I like all sorts of nut brittles, including peanut. But, we need more ideas. Keep [...]
