This morning I received candy, lots of candies!!!!

The first box of goodies came in this morning! Tammie had written me on Saturday (the 26th) to check my mail and could barely believe it this morning when I saw the mailman with this box. That was fast!

As Tammie nicely wrote: “goodies included both fond childhood memories and mid-life crisis savers”. So true. It felt like Christmas morning or something. The smell and seeing all these goodies was so exciting!

Here’s the content of said box:


Can you smell it? This is one of those occasions where smell-o-rama would be so good to have!

Looking at those things brought back so many memories… I used to love those candy necklaces, the sensation of the Pop Rocks popping on my tongue, and playing with a favourite Pez head… I’m also discovering new things, like “Sugar Babies”, “Boston Baked Beans” ,“Charleston Chew” and “Bit-O-Honey”. This is so much fun!

Thank you Tammie for everything, which was A LOT, too much to be honest!! Looking at these is yet another proof that we do have lots in common and what better way to find that out than through sweets!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

You are most welcome, m'Dear. I'm STILL addicted to Pez and candy necklaces. Just don't hold me responsible for any sugar shock!

This is very helpful! Now I know what to put in my box. It's in the mail, I swear! Really.

oh yea, my package is going to be very small compared to that one. my seven year old is in love with pop rocks but my four year old is afraid to eat them.

can't wait to see what else you get.

Annake said...

I've got a few more things to buy and then mine will be on the way! :-D

Periwinkle Studio said...

Yum! What a wonderful box of goodies you received! :) I haven't had Boston Baked Beans in such a loooong time....now I am drooling for some! Can I come over and eat your candy? lol jk. :)

Christina_the_wench said...

Are there any candy cigarettes in there? It's the only kind I am allowed to have now. Dammit.

TraceyTreasure said...

Oh my gosh, you really lucked out!! I gained 5 pounds just looking at it!! :) Hugs!!

Stinkypaw said...

princess: Makes two of us! ;-)

annake: Not too much, please!

periwinkle: Never had those... yet! Come on over anytime, you'd be welcome here, for sure! ;-)

christina: Not in that box. Maybe in one to come, who knows? ;-)

traceyt: Imagine me, after!

My box went out yesterday. I did the same thing--silly things from my childhood, stuff I like now. Plus a couple of things that are sort of typically "southern." Hope you like it!

simplypink said...

Great stuff. I still love Bit o Honey. I bought some awhile back and was tempted not to share.

Stinkypaw said...

lizgwiz: Yours will most likely go out next week...

simplypink: Good eyes! I just discovered those and me likey! ;-)

Marius said...

I sent my box today. My wife made an excellent suggestion, and I think you'll be able to tell which item it is. :-)
