This week it is not going to be about cooking…

It’s going to be about Candy.

I know…not gonna help the muffin top right? Well I have a plan, I am going to stop eating bread, not candy.

So there. I will let you know how that goes, I promise.

This week it is about Necco Wafers.

Remember at easter I was addicted to those damn Whopper Easter eggs, well now they are gone, I have found a replacement…


The first time I tried these I was a kid, I had forgotten about them for years. Last summer when I was at my yearly car show in Sechelt and I found them again in a little candy shop in the nearby mall. One candy, and I was thrown back in time, to when I was a kid…when we used to be able to go to the candy store with 50 cents, and have enough candy for the entire weekend.

I remember munching down the whole roll, enjoying every crunch, every mouth watering bite of them. I am a texture girl, I love eating things with great texture to them.



The package says they have no fat. Sweet.

Of course they are all sugar and 220 calories a roll…oh well, I can live without bread.

I don’t know if they still have these at the little store in Gibsons where we used to buy them, maybe they do!! I will check next time I go.

Oh, I nearly forgot to mention that I found a candy store that sells them here, where I live…now.


You know that is not going to be a good thing, and just my luck it is right underneath the Orthodontist that my son goes to see once a month.

Ironic a little? I would say.

Oh well, there are worse things I could be doing.

And I am not, so it makes me smile, and I am going with that.

Everyone needs a little taste of heaven now and again don’t they?

Happy Monday everyone!!!

  1. Necco wafers are great for gingerbread creations, I’ve seen them used as shingles on houses.

    IMy weakness would be York Peppermints. YUM

  2. I think I would rather live without candy than without bread! I love good bread… those look very pretty, a bit like macaroons (minus cream), french sweety with cream filling…

  3. Love these and haven’t thought about them or had them in years!!! The only ones I don’t like are the grey (licorice) ones…BLEH! Regardless, I could eat a whole sleeve of them mighty quickly too. Way too good and way tooo easy to eat!

    Hmmmm. Now I’m gonna be on the hunt for them! :)
