You won’t believe this, I looked up “Purple fudge” and they had a pic! It did NOT look edible! lol
I’m sure I could find other purple candies, but I’m too hungry now to keep looking! Excuse me while I go into a sugar coma.
Sweet, sweet, SWEETS!! YES! Christmas is the sweetest time of year!!
But what about Easter?? Valentine’s Day?? That October holiday you don’t like to talk about???

Okay, okay, Christmas is ONE of the sweetest times of the year. Can we agree on that??
(Thinks it over, nods.) Whew! Glad we got THAT settled! I didn’t realize I’d need hostage negotiation skills just to write a post today!
Now that I’ve snapped outta my sugar coma, what were we talking about??
Christmas being sweet. Oh yeah, thanks! I’ve already dedicated a whole post to Mama’s pecan pie.
(Oh no, there I go slobbering all over the keyboard again!)
Another sweet that I miss, Grandma’s egg custard pie.
Since she’s gone, no one else really has the heart to make it.any more. So, I go get one from Publix, as a sad, sad, substitute. And cry into my Sprite, as I gobble the whole thing down in 1 sitting.
Fruitcake- now that is 1 thing I don’t miss! Though I must admit, Grandma’s was pretty good, as fruitcakes go! It was moist, not a door stopper at all!
This is probably a good place for this.
Lol, in other words, Desserts take the cake, if you’re stressed!
One candy I haven’t had in years, was homemade by a Greek family, that was in one of our churches. Every year they made red, and green candy, that looked like colored glass. I wish I could remember the name of it! (Oh, Ma-ma!!)
Mama says it was called “Kallacarenes Kandy”. (That was the name of the family- how did that happen??) Then she asked, “Why? Are you gonna try to make some??” Boy, we had a good belly laugh about that!!
Since it looked like broken glass, I looked that up, and lo and behold- that’s the name!
The red is cinnamon, well, guess I won’t be having any of that! The green was mint.
I talked about so much sweet stuff, I’m craving salty now. Off to the kitchen to lick some saltines.
