    Michele...

    I decided to send Endstrom's for a few people on my Christmas list. They now have to go to rehab after eating that crack!! It's the best! Thanks so much for introducing me to it!

    I'm always pleased to gain another addict follower.

    This year instead of baking, I bought our close neighbors Enstrom Truffles and Denver Mints. I know you will find this hard to believe but I haven't tried either. Now when you go into their shop, their big silver bowls of samples are gone. During the summer, they filled them with individually wrapped toffee. After the Fall edict, you now have to ask and they'll give you a bit of the toffee. Can't wait until things go back to normal.
    May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, the spiderlings.
    Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
    And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
    may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.

    Also, out here starting after Thanksgiving, Costco sells big jars of the Petites for some outrageously low price. My sister found them up in WA so you might want to check your store.

    Oh, wow. I've been staying away from the sweets aisles because I've been off of sugar since November...but I may need to check that out. For a little while out here our Wawa was selling them, which was amazing! But I guess the test market didn't respond well enough to keep them. We have a lot of good local confectionaries, so it would be hard to elbow into the market if you didn't know how amazing Endstrom's is. I've only tried the toffee. Which is your favorite Endstrom's product?

    They have such a great assortment of handmade candies you can't go wrong with any of them. But I have to say the toffee is my favorite. I've never had any that melts in your mouth as theirs does. The toffee popcorn is amazing too. It's just a bunch of deliciousness in your mouth and then it just melts away.

    Ginger, I'm glad to hear you say you like the truffles. They look beautiful and I was hoping they tasted good too. Have you tried the Denver Mints? I might get a box of each next time we're there...just for us. True story: I now go every other week to my pt gal who I've become good friends with. I took her a box of truffles the beginning week of Dec and she still has them. She said it's their treat for when the four of them (her, husband and two teenage daughters) go snowshoeing...they each pick one to eat. Can you imagine the willpower???!

    I knew a guy like that. You could give him a box of chocolates, and he'd save them for special occasions. Like one a month or less. Sadly, his (no ex-) wife said he was like that about sex, too.
    "Think as I think," said a man,
    "Or you are abominably wicked;
    You are a toad."

    I said: "I will, then, be a toad." - Stephen Crane

    I was going to remark that chocolate doesn't last very long in our house but I figured a snark would happen about sex not lasting long either.

    A premature rejection issue here?
