So, a sweet coworker vacationed in London the past two weeks and brought me back a variety of British milk chocolate. She remembered my love for it, established during the semester that I studied abroad outside of Liverpool in college...the milk chocolate is like no other people. Really, it just tastes different there. News flash...Cadbury eggs are available there year round. Do you need another reason to vacation in the UK?
Now, she brought me back a little candy that I had seen in England, but never tried before. They're called "Smarties" - not the sugary little concoction that we have here, but more akin to M&Ms. Except better. Wayyyyyy better.
The point of this is that I opened up these little beauties to find that they are not brightly colored like M&Ms, or as they appear in the photo above....they are wonderfully, beautifully colored in shades of fall. Mustards, chartreusse, a milky brown, dusty blues, magenta...
This is exciting no? My husband will inevitably make fun of me for this post. Terrible quality photo from my desk today. Most beautiful little candies I've ever seen.
As if I needed another reason to love fall. Or chocolate.
