Iâ€™m not sure how this happened, but suddenly itâ€™s not enough that I just buy candy anymore, I feel like I need an excuse â€“ perhaps itâ€™s adult guilt.
I didnâ€™t even think I liked salt water taffy before I found these at Trader Joeâ€™s, and now I keep sneaking them.
They come in cherry; my favourite, strawberry banana, red liquorice, sour apple and watermelon.
I keep having to come up with excuses to buy them every time I make the trip to Trader Joeâ€™s.
I got a few bags for â€˜Christmasâ€™, then for â€˜Valentineâ€™s Dayâ€™ and then last weekend as I was perusing the aisles at TJâ€™s, I couldnâ€™t think of an occasion (excuse) to get another bag this time.
Then I thought of itâ€¦ a Mad Men / Game of Thrones viewing party!
Surely, thatâ€™s worth celebrating with candy!
I couldnâ€™t bring myself eat all that candy on Sunday night, since I was ready for bed and had already brushed my teeth (yes, Iâ€™ve evidently become a boring adult).
So we cued up the DVR Monday after work, drank white wine with salt water taffy, and sang along to Zou Bisou Bisou afterwards.
Now I can’t get the damn song out of my head!
