it came in the mail....


when i was little we used to shop at woodward and lothrop in columbia, maryland. there was a candy counter in the department store and we would order caramels and what they called "surgary" chocolates or vanillas. they were put in a box and wrapped in white paper. when the department store closed we didn't know if velatis existed anymore but my mother who has a bit of a sweet tooth tracked them down in washington, d.c. and surprised us by sending a box of the sugary chocolates and vanillas for us to savor and delight in for the next few days - or at least until they last. do you have a favorite childhood memory of a sweet?



thanks mom! paz.

  3. Mmmm, that sounds absolutely decadent! I would save up my babysitting money and allowance as a kid and go to Mrs. K's Candy Shop and pick out Lick-a-sticks, Big Chew baseball gum, fuzzy peaches, gummi worms, Popeye's candy cigarettes (ha!) and much, much more!
