As I was shopping for some last minute groceries, I could not help but notice the over-the-top Easter displays of candy, treats, and other goodies. I was surprised that I was not even tempted to buy one treat.
Then I thought, maybe I only enjoyed candy because how pretty my Easter baskets looked. How every wrapper was pastel with a cute Easter bunny that had handwriting exactly like my Mom’s. (insert smile here).
I also realized that my favorite candy growing up is not readily available, out-dated, and not considered cool anymore. However, this does not mean that my favorite candies aren’t still special.
From zebra striped gum, candy wax soda bottles, to Skor bars I have some pretty fond memories associated with these candies. My family also collected kol-aid stamps for fun, even though we never redeemed them for the prize.
If you have a sweet tooth for life…create your life full of sweet memories that will having you craving for more times like these.
Until next time,
