Parcel with Heart
Just over a week ago I asked Kim what the Halloween Candy tasted like - I promise I was not hinting - just wondering why my American friends loved it soooo much.
Look what arrived in the mail today! A beautifully cuddly Halloween bear and an enormous bag of corn candy all packed in the most amazing box. Kim had covered it with candy history and Halloween images.
Well as you can see I have tried the candy! Ohhh bliss and yummo!
As to the taste -what a shock! The moment it hit my mouth I thought - Jersey Caramels - with a hint of maple syrup (corn syrup according to the ingredient list). After 4, or perhaps 5, taste tests I decided that it was not as sweet as J.C's and had more flavour. I thought the candy was hard! My goodness - my mouth was in a state of euphoric shock. So, thank you Kim.
I have to say that it was the perfect day for a thoughtful gift as I feel a bit weighted down by the world around me at the moment. Tomorrow I will take my candy to school and let my year 9 class have one piece each. As you can see there will be plenty left for me.
