Beacon for the Sweet-Toothed

15 Nov

Obviously I thought of Sarah when I spotted this beaut of a neon sign shining like a beacon for the sweet-toothed. Spain is filled with tuck shops on every corner selling all kinds of candy and frutos secos (my favourite!). Being on holiday with Guy has meant that we have been stopping at most of this shops for his favourite: strawberry laces and liquorice!

Spooky Sweets

17 Oct

I was taking a stroll through my neighborhood this afternoon and glimpsed this jack o’ lantern lollipop and this ghost lollipop in the shop window of Papabubble. If there’s one thing I like, it’s candy, and if there’s another thing I like, it’s Halloween, so I was pretty happy to find these creepy but cute treats.

I walked into the shop, helped myself to a few samples, and watched the candy makers expertly stretch and roll the  gooey, flexible taffy into long strips and conical shapes.

I couldn’t help but feel slightly jealous of these candy magicians. Just being around candy makes me happy, imagine if I could make such handsome creations? My heart would sing with sweet delicious joy.
