Hey there guys!
I’m not really a sweet sort of person, no not in that way, really, I’m a nice girl!
No, I mean the sugary kind.
I’d much prefer a bar of chocolate over just about any boiled sweet, jelly sweet and so on.
Food memories are wonderful things aren’t they?
The smell, the taste, the feelings, all seem to grip on to you like a limpet and these are the memories most fondly remembered.
I remember a stop to a wonderful sweet shop on a long 2 bus journey with my wonderful husband who may not have even been that at the time!
Sitting at the back of a bus, hubby at my side and the paper bag, full of delicious sweets I never knew could taste so good making me smile for the trip.
I remember the feelings, the tastes, so well, but the names?
Forget about it!
So when I found Haribo Live Wires while browsing an online sweet shop and remembering that they were one of the sweets I had adored, the hubby was set on buying them for me.
Sadly, I couldn’t try a taste as they contained Hazelnuts and Brazil nuts which I am allergic to, though I was comforted that they weren’t the same as they used to be and I wasn’t missing out on much.
The Live Wires though, mmm, they reminded me of that lovely trip, a happier moment in our struggling lives today.
Do you have a favourite sweet from yesteryear?
