**Pure sweetness**

The little cheese shop in
the nearby village
{where village-made-cheese is sold}
has this cutest corner.
I have to stop over in that corner
each and every time I visit.
Last weekend I found the Sweets
I used to crave.
Pretty pink raspberries, oh so sweet.
I was {and still am a little bit}
on cloud 9
Thanks for the memories, sweet SweetS

I bet you also have lovely memories
on your childhood SweeTs ...

Happy Thoughts! xx

  2. Norwegian Raspberry Candy, American Hershey Bars, Good and Plenty, Peanut Butter Cups.... Oh, my list is so long. What wonderful memories you have brought. :) Thank you.

  12. Mmmm...your little sweets look good...I love Red Vine licorice.

  13. Awwww... so sweet! I remember the candy I love when I was young is a milk candy, I called it rabbit sweet!

  14. Isn't amazing how food can evoke such wonderous memories!

  15. oooh, I remember going to the local "milkbar" to buy 20 cents worth of mixed lollies which seemed to fill a paper bag back then :)
    mmmmm, yummm ♥

  16. ja ja, die snoepjes kan ik ook. Mijn moeder koopt ze zelfs nog regelmatig, evenals de peren (ook van die zuurtjes).
    Mijn herinnneringen gaan naar het sigarenwinkeltje op ons dorp. Die verkocht namelijk ook snoepjes. De snoepjes die ik het lekkerst vond worden helaas niet meer gemaakt. De naam was mellow mint en was een vierkant snoepje de ene kant mint en de andere kant caramel. Het zat in een wit papiertje met gouden lettertjes. Het water loopt me in de mond als ik eraan denk.
    Fijne dag,
    Liefs Ester
