Handmade Sweet Confections

4 years ago

<div style="color:#000; background-color:fff; font-family:Courier New, courier, monaco, monospace, sans-serif;font-size:12pt">My boyfriend and I went away to Maine and in Maine sugar (candies, gum, chocolates, etc.) are considered a luxury item. In my world I consider a luxury item a handbag which costs over $150, a brand new car, a leather jacket, etc.&nbsp; But in Maine the state considers candies to be a luxury - which means they tack an additional tax on top of the sale of the item.&nbsp; It`s something they have been doing for ages and I don`t see it ever stopping.&nbsp; There are countless candy stores here, there and everywhere (hello, Dr. Seuss) and it`s a booming business in the Maine region.&nbsp; I purchased these two prepackaged confections at a store -- the candy shop, Robin`s Confections, packaged them for individual sale at this store.&nbsp; They were $1.39 each, plus tax, so it was about $3 for the two.&nbsp; The names
weren`t on them, but the square bar is what I would consider a homemade almond joy - minus the almond.&nbsp; It was a coconut nouget (think a macaroon cookie) coated in milk chocolate.&nbsp; It was delicious and the other was a bullseye (think a homemade reese cup).&nbsp; Both were delicious but I`d say the bullseye won hands down -- there`s something about a peanut butter center that just wins all candy competitions in my mind.<br /><br />QUESTION:<br />Have you ever tried any homemade type candies when on a mini-vacation?<br /><br />
