Canadian Candy (again -- sorry!)


So this morning I paid a visit to WalMart, Safeway and Superstore and started the obligatory candy stock-up. I got the Kinder Surprise Eggs for Chris and Tara, the Smarties for Math , the Caramilk for Chris and Natalie, the Scotch Mints for me, and then picked up a nice wide variety of different candy bars. To top things off -- I got a big Halloween-sized bag of miscellaneous treats to have around when we finish up all the rest of the stuff. Can I just say I LOVE Canadian candy? I ate a Cherry Blossom today -- haven't had one of those in years -- and it made my mouth SO happy!! I will come back having gained a zillion pounds. Sigh.

My parents are doing pretty well, my sister arrives this afternoon (she lives 2 hours from my parents and I can't wait to see her!) and then tomorrow morning is the wedding. I've even been lucky with the weather - -it's lovely again today. Nice things are happening here. On the down-side - -I miss my little ones and their Mama! I miss Mark and Math. I miss Austin. I miss my Primary kiddoes. I miss my blogging friends but thank goodness for computers. I guess there is no perfect world, right?

Don't be sorry, that looks delicious. I love good, non waxy chocolate. My friend brought me a bunch back from Europe and I was in Heaven. Have fun! I'm glad you're still blogging on your trip.:)

I gotta try some Canadian candy. You make it sound so good. Next time I'm there, who knows when that will be, I will definitely stock up! I've been to Canada once and it was only for a few hours. Darn! I didn't try the candy...

My mouth is watering too. All this chocolate talking--I'm heading to the cupboard to see if I've got anything stashed.

I had a cherry blossom 'bout 3 months ago or so. We found them for $.50 cents! I'm still not sure what my favorite is. I love them all it seems! Try the Aero with Caramel. ;)

ummm, I'd like to place an order for that carmel stuff. It's sounds and LOOKS divine. Feel free to post candy pictures any old time Jan!
I'm sure all of you babies (big and small) are missing you in Texas. I'm glad you have a computer:)

You could stand to gain a few lbs anyway, so indulge yourself! ;o)

Argh, primary is never the same without you. I'm sad we won't see you Sunday, but SO happy you're with your family enjoying this wonderful time. Hope it's a beautiful day tomorrow...have fun!
