CIJ: Christmas Goodies

July 7, 2009

One of my favorite childhood  memories of Christmas Goodies is the  Special Package of Homemade Candies sent to My family by My Grandmother Ewers   each year she would send a box of her home made delectable goodies.  And her timing would always be just a week just before Christmas. In the box would contain Divinity, Fudge and Jellied Candies, and Peanut brittle. Oh and you could smell the sweet aroma before even opening the box. That was a true treasure to indulge in and she  would even send cookies for me to set out just for Santa Claus . Very fond memories of her goodies, Yummy. Another Favorite of Mine Was an Idaho Spud Candy bar which can only be found In or around Idaho it’s taste is indescribable and no it does not contain any ingredients’ of  a potato for those of you that may be wondering, Sure you could buy the Idaho Spud Candy bar any time of the year  but My dad would  always hide a few inside the Christmas Tree for me to find on Christmas Morning. idahospud_home and since I no longer have access to these by means of my local grocery store ,I have ordered them from Owyhee Candy Company just for my children can experience the wonderful yummy mouth watering   confection.

What are some of your favorite  Holiday goodies? I would love to hear about them..
