I Turned Left Instead of Right...

...and discovered the all crisp rice cereal treats store, Treat House.. Really, there really is a store that specializes in treats and it's in my neighborhood.


If anyone was expecting a political discussion based on today's title, you won't find it here. In almost five years I've stayed away from politics and even the current mess won't change Buttercup's. There are many, many places you can read about Washington doings or lack of doings, but not here. That is the extent of my political commentary and now we'll turn to a more usual topic, crisp rice cereal treats.

I went to return my library books yesterday -- to keep my perfect no-fine record --  and instead of walking to the right, down the ramp, I took the steps and turned to the left. Only two stores from the library was this little jewel. The store has been open two months and it stocks homemade marshmallows, breakfast bars and treats, but to me it's all about the treats. Gooey, yummy looking treats.

They all look delicious, and the store ships throughout the United States.

In an effort to fit into my fall clothes -- there are several nice pairs of slacks that don't zip without tremendous effort -- I skipped the treat and had a cup of one of my favorite coffee brands, Stumptown. I did study the window carefully and chose the flavor I will have when those nice pants fit again, though by that time there may be some fabulous Christmas treats that catch my eye.


I've had a great time sharing my newest neighborhood discovery. As always, thanks for visiting and take good care of yourself.

And what a discovery it is! :). I'm all for treats over politics. I got so upset about everything a couple of weeks ago that i made a couple of political type posts. Never again! Gack! This post you made about library books and yummy treats is totally the way to go. Love!

That is one store I'd like to visit. I didn't know they had such things. My family has always loved them and so do I. I'm thinking that some of those wonderful treats will be in the making soon here at my house.

I would be in heaven at that store! I guess that is an advantage livin in New York. I live out in the country and a store like that would never make it here. Yum-o
