This past week I’ve asked how you feel about eating Cilantro and Rhubarb. What tastes are pleasing to your palate?
Here’s another distinctive flavor.
Licorice-Yes or no?
Meet Menno, from Holland, who has a stand on Saturdays at Winterfeldplatz Market, selling all kinds of licorice. Some with salt. Some with a lot of salt My eldest son likes licorice. I do, too But without the salt for me, please. Here is Menno’s website http://www.lecker-lakritz.de
Above- The brochure listing all the varieties And the assortment I selected for Mark
Somewhere in the archives I have photos of my sister eating a licorice ice cream cone in Twisp Washington. And of course Menno has sold pure licorice powder to our favorite Berlin ice cream store, Kiez Eis, for licorice ice cream. You know I asked.
Erika’s cousin Shannon captured the store exploring we did. I missed National Sloth Day last month.
I captured the “found grocery list” in the cart.
What fun to find and read other people’s grocery lists
first time seeing Peatos
A few examples of an inexplicable phenomenon at this time of year. Not limited to lattes.

Cheri Lucas Rowlands at WordPress challenges bloggers to post a photo of something (or someone) sweet.
Vincie brought the foil wrapped Betsy Ann chocolate balls (made in Pittsburgh) to the House Concert and Molly brought the Sarris Candies (from Canonsburg) for Valentine’s. Sweet!
I think the bright wrappers make it inviting to unwrap them.
Look at the unexpected fun I had at COSTCO when I sampled a Lindt truffle. I met Tammy, the Lindt Representative, and Kimberly and Christine who were offering the samples and talking with customers. Spoiler Alert :You know I bought some, too. It was an iPhone day as I didn’t have my good camera with me.

You can’t see the large spider and weblike barrier to the darkened house. Carloads of kids are brought along this avenue. I can only imagine how they stockpile treats.
The spooky wild Halloween house on the corner of Jackson was in full swing again this year. Eerie sounds and flashing strobe lights. Skeletons climbing trees.
Yetter’s in Millvale, PASaturday morning.
I wanted my grandchildren to see an old time soda fountain. It was too early for ice cream so we bought some things to-go, for later after the Children’s Museum-snacks, bottles of water, chocolate coins and some sour patch kids from the candy selection.
We will return for ice cream before they head home.
