Nothing makes me crazier than limited time items that I am in love with, but can only get during certain times of the year. Case in point, I have an addiction to these little mini-packs of colorful candy-coated balls of chocolate known as Sixlets. I have loved Sixlets since I was a girl and I used to buy them from the mom-and-pop shop on the corner of the street I used to live on in Baltimore, Md. I remember finding a nickle on the sidewalk and thinking, "Oh happy day! I can go get some more Sixlets."
Somehow, while I was growing up Sixlets started disappearing off of store shelves. I am not quite sure what happened, but my heart was broken. I can still find them on occasion in places like WalMart, but only during Easter. Why, must you tease me with holiday only candy?
If ever I own a store in this lifetime, be it a candy store, book store, or shoe store, there will be a shiny little shelf holding my favorite coveted candy-goodness!
Now, don't get me started on my childhood cereal favorites, BooBerry, FrankenBerry, and Count Chocula. Target was kind enough to carry them during the Halloween season, but what about the rest of the year? I am a firm believer in equal opportunity for ghosts and ghouls too.
I did discover, while searching Google for an image to use, that I can purchase my favorite candies online through several merchants. "Oh happy day!"
