Summertime Sweets

I'm not sure why, but summertime makes me think of candy. Two of the ladies who took my Gypsy Pendant class at Stampfest gave me a gift bag as a thank you. Inside was a card, a container of trail mix, and a lovely little gift box of salt water taffy. Half was lemon (divine) and the other half was the color of watermelon (green & pink). I saved those for last, thinking they wouldn't be my favorites, but was I ever wrong!!

Do you remember eating BB Bats & Kits when you were little? I'd walk home from school everyday in the Five Points area of Raleigh, stopping at the Northside Drugstore, where I'd spend my change from lunch on those 2 candies. My favorites were strawberry and banana, but chocolate would do in a pinch. And that taffy tasted EXACTLY like those little Kits, which is making me want some right now!

Find a little mom & pop store and look for those old penny candies. No doubt they'll cost more than a penny now, but hey, they're worth it!

  1. I don't know if they still do, but at least a few years ago, Patterson Mill Country Store in Durham still carried penny candies.
