My dad's stepdaughter used to bring them every year for my dad at Christmas when I was a kid. I loved them. And you're right, steiconi, that liquid is too much. It surely would be much better making homemade ones without all that junk. But, still, nice memories. Every time I hear about chocolate-covered cherries, that's what I think of.

Also stroopwafels, I got a craving and bought a big lot on Ebay and have been eating them sparingly since. I think they will last though.

What are stroopwafels?

When you do track down the Moose Tracks look for the "Extreme" Moose Tracks...OMG so much better. I got a sample when I went to the Mayfield factory

IT's funny how different foods and treats can bring memories back. I used to love those cherries but haven't had them in years. It was a Christmas thing when I was a kid. I tried making homemade ones one time and I haven't hit on a good recipe...yet




And back to occasional cravings:

Cheesecake which I love but rarely eat.
Cannolis
Chocolate Italian Ices
Zeppoles
Mallomars
Cadbury Eggs
Candy Corn

Terra Chips


Sun Chips...Harvest Cheddar

BBQ Ribs...yum
Turkey dinner
Prime Rib

Fresca...I'm not a soda drinker but one of those ice cold is so good to me.
Hot Chocolate

ETA - this pic comes from Target's website, but I have never been able to find these in Target. I think you need a Supertarget.

It used to be candy corn around Halloween. I cannot have a few pieces of candy corn. I will eat the whole bag until I feel sick from it, and I will feel sick for a day or two. They don't call it candy crack for nothing.

In the past few years, I've had some struggles with blood sugar after having to take high doses of prednisone for a medical condition, and so I have now let two Halloweens pass without eating candy corn.

It's probably for the best.

Go get you some!

To me, they're good but I prefer Happy Hippos or shortbread. But that's just me.

As for candy corn - OMG. There's no such thing as moderation with me so I just don't buy it and then I scrounge around for it at Halloween. I saw that someone had filled a candle jar thingie up and put one of those fake flame candles in it for a centerpiece and I thought "Well, that's pretty but it would never last at my house."

As kids, we used to eat a piece of fried bologna, along side a fried egg.
