Can you name all the goodies in your house? I can. On the shelf next to the cereal is a package of Kettle® Sea Salt Potato Chips, on the counter there’s a pan of Hershey’s® Frosted Brownies that I made this afternoon, and
in the freezer are containers of Häagen-dazs® Raspberry Sorbet and Mango Sorbet—their intense flavors wake up even the most worn-out taste buds!—plus vanilla ice cream, a staple at our house.
At the moment, oddly enough, there are no Charleston Chew® or Milky Way® candy bars, Tootsie Rolls®, or See’s® Peanut Brittle, all favorites of mine. Why? Because I didn’t buy any. Wasn’t even tempted, believe it or not.
For some reason, although I forget inconsequential things like what I went downstairs for or where I left the book I’m reading, I don’t forget sweets that are hiding in the cupboards unless I don’t care for them, e.g., dark chocolate, or unless I’ve wrapped them in butcher paper and stuck them in the freezer, a habit prompted by a plethora of Halloween candy years ago and perpetuated because it’s always so much fun, weeks or months later, to come across a mystery package full of fun-size tidbits I’ve completely forgotten.
So, for this weekend, I decided to satisfy my sweet tooth with what’s on hand. Fortunately, there’s plenty!
