Good gravy - the wife made the WORST hot chocOlate the other day. I drank it but sheesh... yuck. She thought it was off too, made from that canned stuff you buy. It tasted like... British chocolate. Those guys should be in the world court up on charges of crimes against humanity for what they do to chocolate. I am still mad at those kippered arseholes for deep frying Mars bars...
Ironically, if you want the best hard candy in the world, though... they are still pretty much in charge. Oh man... when I was a kid, my Gramma Filthie would buy it in tins that were festooned with pics of those soldiers in red coats, and big tall black hats. Or pics of the Queen or Buckingham palace, or Big Ben... there was something in those candies than just mass produced cheap sucrose and fructose and nitrates and gawd only knows what else. Boy... I could sure go for one or two of those right now...
Forget I said anything! Maybe I should just STFU...?
Always wished those thing were as tasty as they looked!ReplyDelete
Wow.. I'm flabbergasted. That is the EXACT same candy as my grand-mother had in her candy dish more than 50 years ago!! (the top picture) I recognized every piece!ReplyDelete
That ribbon candy, ain't had any in 50 years but my teefs hurt just lookin at it.ReplyDelete
Mom always had a pile of ribbon candy. It was the last bit of Christmas to go, took months to eat through it. I didn't like it either, but it was part of her depression era Christmas memories. They were thankful to have that awful stuff when she was a kid. I can understand that now.ReplyDelete
I am coming to your place for Christmas supper, STxAR. Break out a jar of your best pickles. I will bring a bottle. :)Delete
They are chilling as we speak, come ahead!Delete
