Sweet Treats-Tasty Tuesday



My lovely neighbor who lives across the street shared some delectable treats with us from her work travels.  She often goes to Europe for work and brings us goodies back.  I am like a little kid as I anxiously await her return.  This past trip she shared chocolates and fruit treats with me, the kids and Hubby!  I tend to hoard  hide the chocolates for me and only me.  Does that sound selfish?  No, I didn't think so either! Ha ha.  These chocolates are simply delicious and melt in your mouth.  I usually will have just one because they are that good.  You can savor one and look forward to the next one on another occasion.  I tend to freeze them or stash them in the back, way back of the fridge for safe keeping.  You know, me time, that time of the month and so on.












  The children and my Hubby were excited to have the Gummi's and noted that they tasted a bit different from the ones we buy here at our local retailers.  They were delicious and not so sugary as the ones we purchase at our discount stores, etc.  My Hubby is a Gummi connoisseur and was so excited to try the original recipe from Germany!  He already has his order ready for the next trip and of course my order is ready to!  Yummo!  What's your favorite treat, goody or "stash" item???

  5. Now I want some chocolate! Ha! You have every right to hoard chocolate- you work hard and need a little "reward" for all that you do. At least that's what I tell myself when I go to my "stash". Lol!! I totally relate to this post- love it!!

  6. haribo! the best gummies ever and those chocolate shells are too pretty to eat. believe it or not ... i don't eat much chocolate, so that box would last me a year! the only thing i've ever "stashed" are the starburst jelly beans. you usually only see them around easter and they are so much better than the others.

  8. No that does NOT sound selfish to me....I would do the same exact thing lolll. Especially with treasures (chocolate) from Europe. I tend to hide items I buy from the local bakery, so I can't imagine what I would do if someone brought home goodies from their travels. And I've been wanting to try Haribo gummies since forever!

  14. I am not a candy lover at all but a good chausson aux pommes or pain au chocolat will get me every time.

    Your neighbours seem lovely!
