Candy, Anyone?

I’ve mentioned my love affair with the UPS man. Earlier this week he brought me candy.

And not just any old candy, but delicious, handmade orange caramel and pistachio nougat.

Pistachio Nougat

Orange Cream Caramels

Neither of these flavors is anything I would have ever chosen. I’m weird about mixing different kinds of food – like fruit and candy! But it surprised me by being really good. I didn’t eat the pistachio, but my husband proclaimed them GOOD and kept returning for more. I haven’t checked, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re completely gone. The caramels will melt in your mouth and have a great flavor.

I am very impressed with the quality of the Calabasas Candy Co. In over 100 degree heat they shipped this candy to us. It was soft when it arrived, so I placed it in the refrigerator. I quickly figured out that was the best way to keep the candy from sticking to the wrapper. And it helped me make it last longer because it wasn’t sitting on the counter tempting me at every turn.

I know the winner of the Blogmania giveaway will LOVE whatever they win from Calabasas Candy Co.
