Just 3 Months Past Date

No Problem. Today I found this tin of chocolates in a box when I cleaned up my “craft room” . I’m pretty sure they were an intended gift. Couldn’t possibly give it now. So I ate one of the bars.

No noticeable diminished pleasure!

A Sweet Gift

From a sweet friend who always buys local-she’s practically neighbors with Betsy Ann Chocolates. Lucky me. Such a lovely assortment of flavors and textures. A real treat. Thank you

I ate one before taking the photo. Sweet

New-to-Me Candy Bars at the Market

After I added some lunch items to my cart I headed to the checkout line. These unfamiliar candy bars caught my eye.

Just window shopping, I realized I had no idea what tastes these bars offered.

What a variety of chocolate bars at Weiland’s Market, here in Clintonville Ohio. I left with the food for lunch but without a chocolate bar. A few quick photos.

I did a little research and each link gives the individual history of the different bars.

Big Hunk has been around since the 1950s

Another midwestern favorite Sifers Valomilk made in Kansas

Twin Bing hails from Sioux City Iowa. Founded in 1923!

Idaho Spud since 1918 is the best selling candy bar in Idaho “

“The popular Idaho Spud Bar is a wonderful combination of a light cocoa flavored, soft marshmallow center drenched with a dark chocolate coating and then sprinkled with coconut (Sorry, no potato!). It was originally marketed as a “Healthful” candy bar since it is made with agar agar instead of gelatin.

“The potato shape and unique blend of ingredients appeals to both young and old, making the “Idaho Spud” one of the top selling candy bars in the Northwest, and is Idaho Candy Company’s bestselling bar. The Idaho Spud Bar has been a favorite since it was first manufactured in 1918.”

C is for Chocolate Covered Cherry

My friend brought a fancy box of chocolates when she came to dinner Saturday night. And they are delicious. The Betsy Ann Chocolates business is close to her home. Lucky us!

One of the pieces was a chocolate covered cherry (with the “c” on top) just as she advised me. I like to eat a chocolate covered cherry on occasion.

Do you?

Chocolate Covered cherries. Yes or no?

M&M’S Yes or No?

Peanut or Regular M&M’S yes or no?

M&M’S Peanut Chocolate Candies were introduced in 1954 and the color used to print the “m” on M&M’S Plain and Peanut Chocolate Candies was changed from black to white” you can design your own. Personalize them, too.

They were so colorful. Like paint chips! I had to photograph them.
