Yesterday I was talking with my mother and aunt about sweets. My mother could do without, she says. That's incredible to me! I LOVE treats. When I've cleaned my home, walked the dog twice, done the grocery shopping, ironed, emptied and filled the dishwasher, and stuffed another load of laundry into the machine, I love nothing more than to select something tasty from my stash, sit in an overstuffed chair with Kiki, and enjoy my reward. And on the weekend, when my husband is finally home, we like to cozy into the plump couch, cuddle up under a blanket, put in a film, and snack on sweets.
When I saw this vintage ad, I could hardly believe it was real; "The crave for candy is a call for energy!" "Candys dandy, keep it handy!" "Candy is a delicious food!" Those were some times....

I would love to hear about your favorite treats. Do you have a stash? Do you like to make your own? Do you tend to reward or comfort yourself with sweets as I do? Do you give sweets as gifts? Could you live without them?
