I think I was banned from eating this as there were rumours that some kids died from it! It was a kind of orange sherbet dust that popped and sizzled in your mouth. Would it pass health and safety standards in this day and age? Unlikely!
Old Fashioned Sweet Violet Syrup... My Papa Pills use to have these growing in the lawn and flower beds in Sutter Creek. They talked of this syrup... So pretty! If you don't add sugar you could use this to dye your creams, good idea. :)
Sweets! The colours, tastes and textures make them so addictive. I love going into a good old fashioned sweet shop where the walls are lined with shelves stacked with jar upon jar, and you leave the shop with a paper bag full to the brim :0)
