i want candy

when the wonderful charlie of yankee pop asked if i would be interested in sampling some of their freshly imported treats, i just about laughed in response. i mean, what kind of question is that?! being a fully fledged member of both the sweet tooth alliance and a female in their 20's (just), how could i say no to that? i warned him that if he was making false claims about this offer that i would hunt him down and kill him. and then this arrived (albeit 2 weeks later, no thanks to the wonder that is royal mail)..



and that's the day i died.

died and went to a chocolatey, refined sugar-filled heaven. i haven't had taffy since i was on holiday in the states over 10 years ago. when i was trying to explain taffy to boyfriend, the best comparison i could come up with was "it's like stripes". for the record: taffy is nothing like maoam. so i devoured the strawberry taffy while he was prepping dinner; i'd finished the entire thing by the time he was done. i then started on the banana - then i was bus-ted.

i was like an actual child in a sweet shop.

if you're a fan of candy like i am, and don't have the luxury of an overpriced olde fashioned candy store nearby, you can now buy american sweets from yankee pop here in the uk - they'll deliver all your favourite treats (just about) everywhere inside the uk, and have a massssssive range of retro soda too! a+w root floats anyone?! if loving american candy is wrong, i don't wanna be right.

thank you yankee pop! god bless america.
