Ok so as I mentioned in my about page, I made candy. It seems like my love of candy is the best place to start this darn blog.
A Public Announcement: If you eat candy brush your teeth when you are done.
Ok now that is out of the way let’s really talk.
Did you know that cave men had candy? Nope! Well it blew my mind too. It turns out that they would dry honey and create something similar to taffy.
This tells me that the urge for something sweet after dinner is primal. If our early ancestors were making sweets then by golly, I ain’t gonna feel bad about love for it.
Now, I bet that they weren’t brushing their teeth afterwards but….
This got me to thinking about cave man candy and what it would look like.
I found this recipe for a fig and chocolate candy that actually looked good. If you want to check out the recipe go here. Honestly, it looks gross but figs are not attractive. So when you dip them in chocolate, they look like…well you decide??
Fun Candy & Christmas
This year we had a Christmas party where we invited our friends over. We cooked a ton of food and had a few spirits. It was an absolute blast. Check out the bags in the image below.
We went to an old timey candy store. It was such a blast. We even bought candy cigarettes. No we don’t smoke but it was still fun. Do you remember those things from when we were kids?
It was a great party and our guests had the absolute best time going thru their bags. Each bad was random and different. We spent about an hour and half shopping for everything to go in those bags.
Honestly, I highly recommend doing this for your next party.
Send the gift of candy
I was searching around and found a great idea for gift giving and candy. This whole gift box idea is exploding. Years ago, we sent gift boxes but we packed them ourselves.
Obviously, we can’t be bothered with that. Now here I am complaining but honestly, this is so fun that I just have to talk about it.
The folks who run candy subscription box gave me the idea of giving candy subscription boxes as gifts. I love this.
Have you done the gift box thing?
I will let you read more about it at their site but I already know this is my next birthday gift idea.
What is your favorite kind of candy?
Considering how much that I am digging the idea of blogging, I want some candy in the shape of a keyboard. Does that make me weird?
Now if you are reading this and candy is not your gig, no problem. There is pie for you.
If pie is not your thing, no problem you can have cake.
But that is far as I go.
Alright, now you tell me, what is your favorite kind of candy?
