SOUR PATCH: Watermelon

The patch that grows all this delightfully sour candy seems never-ending.

Today I find no kids…just simple watermelon slices.

They have a nice flavor too them – but make no mistake sour-heads-  they are NOT that crazy or XTREME in the sour department.   15 more words

Wow.  The classics never seem to disappoint.  The consistency and simplicity…coupled with a heaping dose of nostalgia make for an even sweeter treat.

With Halloween around the corner, every business I visit lately, has been pretty free with the candy. 58 more words
