I am a candy fan. Yes, I can rhapsodize over cake and ice cream is my go-to sweet snack, but candy is right up there, too. I don't indulge that often -- though I did go wild with the wasabi Kit Kats in Japan -- but when I'm in the neighborhood I often stop in at one of my favorite places, Dylan's Candy Bar. I like the array of candy, but I really like the décor. I feel as though I'm visiting a candy factory and I can choose anything I like, calories and cost not considered while I browse.
"Button" candy was one of my favorites in elementary school.
If I wore flip flops, I'd choose these candy themed ones.
I almost didn't stop in during my last visit to the neighborhood, but I had to explore once I saw the stuffed ice cream cones in the window.
My only purchase was coconut lime sugar-free gum. I'd never seen the brand -- a little pricy -- or the flavor before, but the taste lived up to my expectation. Other than on flights I don't chew gum very often, but every once in a while it's a treat, The coconut flavor made me feel I was on a tropical beach for a lot less than the price of a flight and hotel.
My candy tastes are simple. My favorites are York Peppermint Patties, Reese's of any variety and toffee. I also like movie candy -- Raisinets especially -- but more in memory and rarely, rarely eat them. What are your favorites?
Today's title -- which definitely may make an encore appearance in Buttercupland -- is the greeting at the cash register at Dylan's. It was so unexpected, but a very nice change from "Have a nice day."
I hope everyone is having a good week. It's birthday week for me and today is the last day I will be sixty-four. So enjoying the birthday remembrances and looking forward to tomorrow. So grateful to have another birthday!
As ever, thanks for visiting and have a sweet day!
