IN THE FIELD: Sweets
I’m not a big fan of candy anymore, except for a good piece of chocolate now and again. But while in the checkout line at the grocery store the other day, I couldn’t help noticing the vintage-styled packaging of this brand of liquorice. There were several of these bags hanging amongst the other brightly-colored contemporary wrappers of candies and sweets.
Then I noticed the wording “soft eating” and wondered…what other kind is there? I had to get a photo.
Folks were curious, rather than annoyed at me for taking photos of the candy aisle while they were in line to pay for their goods. Probably because I mentioned the wording on the package. A man standing behind me said he had never noticed that before, but the candy was some of the best he has ever tasted.
