#Christmas Candy – Wordless Wednesday December 29, 2021December 29, 202127 Comments Let your photo(s) tell your story. Pot of Gold chocolates have been a family tradition for over sixty years. So I was really annoyed when they changed them this year. Where are all my old favorites – the rum butter caramel, butter creme and mocha caramel? They’ve gone back to those horrible strawberry and orange ones we used to feed to the dog when we were kids. And don’t tell me it’s supply issues…… My mother still enjoys a candy cane as she grew up in the Depression when Christmas morning meant peppermint candy and an orange. I must have bought twenty of these, but most of them were given away – either to friends or the pharmacy, doctor’s office, snow-shoveler, grasscutter – anyone who helped me over the past year. It’s amazing how happy a box of fudge can make people, and I still have a few left to hoard until Valentine’s day. These hot chocolate bombs filled with mini-marshmallows were great, and justified as I’m supposed to be increasing my calcium intake, and the dark chocolate is full of antioxidants. These thin individually wrapped chocolate covered mints are nice served with coffee after a big meal, when you want something sweet but don’t have room for dessert. Saving these for New Years – note the wrapping is still intact! Also for New Years – I like the idea of creme brulee, pecan pie and raspberry cheesecake in a mini chocolate dessert cup. Some years just require more treats. A reward for gingerly walking in snowy weather. If we can’t have Paris, we can have Christmas in Paris tea! Gimmicky I know, but good, probably because of the chocolate. Not candy but a New Year’s resolution – an alternative for people like me who can’t swallow big pills. Do you have a favorite or traditional Christmas candy?
