Tomorrow is Canada Day and we'll be celebrating our great nation by painting the small upstairs bedroom. Not how many people choose get festive on their day off, but I'm looking forward to it. After that room then there is just ONE ROOM LEFT in our renovations. ONE! It started out with nine and soon it will be ONE! I'm pretty psyched about it as we've been at it for years (with lots of breaks, of course). Our fuel for the day will be a candy that truly makes me proud to be a Canadian, the Lowney's Cherry Blossom.
These are a very nostalgic sweet treat for me. Neither the product nor the yellow box with the cherries has changed since I was little. They're not a very adult taste and if you didn't grow up with them you might not like them as they're on the edge of being painfully sweet, but I love them. As far as I know they are just a Canadian thing, although they may be a Canadian and British thing, I'm not sure. I do know that they're delicious and their drippy sugaryness makes me feel like I'm 5 again every time I eat one.
Milk chocolate with both peanuts and coconut, cherry syrup, cherry cream and a maraschino cherry. Yum. I don't suggest you cut them in half before you eat them though - it guarantees a huge mess. Cherry Blossoms are not meant for sharing! I guess that's why David bought 5!
