ON THE BACK BURNER

Feb. 1

I just saw a TV ad for Butter Fingers Candy. I ate one ,once. I seem to remember that is was fairly good. Growing up in New Orleans, I ate mostly local candy. Pralines were a given. My friend's Grandmother, called Grand Mamere even made them sometimes. I have my favorite place to buy them and my niece brings me a box every time she and her husband visit. They have added a real treat ,bringing me, when they come, once a year, Creole Cream Cheese. It's like creme fres with cream cheese, and full fat cream...only better, much better.There was a chocolate bar that I loved. It was Elmer's Gold Brick.I think it was milk chocolate with pecans. Period. Then there was Heavenly Hash. That was its name. Marshmallows,pecans and chocolate. I wonder if all of the kids that I grew up with were hyper from all of the sugar we consumed.And don't forget the Coke that washed down the chocolate. Man those were the good old days.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
