I have had great fun participating in a few of Lynne's Special Swaps over the past six months. There's a theme to each swap -- in the garden, on a picnic, going to the movies, having a spa day -- and it's fun dreaming up ideas and putting together each perfect, special package.
No matter the theme, none of my swap packages is complete without a special confectionary treat from Wisconsin -- Lynne and Marisol can vouch for Wilmar's handmade caramels, I believe Irish Eyes Kathy B. can speak for the truffles (or was it an Oak's Melty Bar?), I am as yet undecided about Liz's special treat.
It was fun to see an article today in The New York Times! A Tour of Candyland in Wisconsin, Timeless and Sweet.
Wilmar's is where I do most of my shopping here in Candyland, but Oak's is available at my usual grocery store, and Seroogy's and Vande Walle's fundraiser bars are never hard to find. Sweet!
