SWEETS FOR MY SWEET
Sugar for my honey........
This month we will be looking at all things sweet....... By which I mean sweets, candy, chocolate, bonbons and confectionery.
I am sure we can all look back to the sweets of our childhood and reminisce. My favourites were:
How about you? What were your favourites? Gum Drops? Chewing gum? American Hard Gums? Chocolate peanuts and raisons?
Have you noticed all the glorious colours of sweets? I am sure that when I was a child a lot came from sources we would never use today - but there were vibrant pink bubble gums and bright yellow and red rhubarb and custard sweets, Smarties came is a variety of lovely colours. What about the Jazzy and snowy sweets - chocolate buttons with multi coloured decorative balls on them?
If you live in the UK you will be familiar with the idea of a stick of rock from the seaside. This is a hard, boiled sugar candy often with stripes round the outer edge and writing through the centre with name of the seaside resort.
As an adult I have encountered Reeses Pieces with their distinctive yellow, brown and orange shells. Marshmallows are now all pink and white. Milka chocolates with their mauve wrappers and lovely image of the cows on the front first entered my life as a treat from the airport!
What about the wrappers? Cadbury chocolate can easily be recognised by its distinctive purple wrapping. Galaxy chocolates all have that swirl of luxurious chocolate colour on the label.
Sweets for my Sweet
Hope you like it.
Here's the photo.
Beautiful blanket, Sandra, but now I'm craving jelly beans (one of my favourites) as well as liquorice allsorts!!
As you're deprived of yarn, Lesley, I really think you should be able to treat yourself to some sweeties. You can walk off the calories in your trips to the sweet shop!
Patricia, you might just have given me the excuse I need :))
I love this, Sandra. Such a clever idea.
A terrific interpretation. Makes me a bit hungry for jelly beans.
Sandra, that is lovely....... And yes, definitely I can see jelly beans in that!
Mega congrats Sandra!!! Great idea, beautifully made ❤️
This blanket is absolutely DIVINE, Sandra!!!....and sooooo neat. Well done, you!!
