A sweet sounding prompt from the inkwell

Hi Folks

Inky back with another photographic delight from the inkwell.

all sorts of candy treats….from milk chocolate bears to candy bananas……

Yes. it is the last day of lent…and yes it has been a pain knowing just where i’d stashed all that yummy stuff away till now

However , Given the odd sunday allowance and my birthday tea –

i reckon i’ve done rather well from abstaining from the sweet stuff,

there is of course one thing that re-emerged on my birthday

And its not being opened till Bank Holiday Monday 🙂

As its easter – and im doing Napowrimo – here’s a little something sweet inspired by Matthew Tomlinson’s sweet shop at Salford’s Lark Hill Place

It’s called Pick and Mix

Open up your bag, and round
your choice of sweets for just a pound
a choice of sweets, is hard to choose
with more than just the penny chews.

Some candied shrimps, some lemon drops
chocolate footballs, fizzy pops
Bonbons of strawberry, cola cubes
Dolly mixtures and sherbet in tubes

Candy lollies in different flavours,
Fruit sherbet drops with tastes to savour
lemon pastilles, and aniseed balls
and space dust that’s fizzy to not one kid but all

Chocolate cups, a favourite for me
were usually the thing to be eaten wi’ glee
But don’t eat them all now, or else there won’t be
any room left in your tummy for tea!

Do you know who did it ?

Even as you look around the house for clues

The person or persons behind the act are

Eating the evidence!

Crumbs of chocolate covered cookies

Tumbled to the ground , travel

In a trail – leading to some

Very crafty little individuals

Expect some repentance at the tea time table!

Nutcracker (Cookie Jar)

Second day of the Christmas Countdown

everyone knows , that soon this drum major will be

rapping out a tune on his drum – for

gooey chocolate cookies might be guarded by him

expecting little ones to go on a hunt

not knowing where the treasure is hiding

that’s something – the dear major is keeping under his hat

Chocolate

#Chocolate #Food #Colours #CYW #Brown

Captured in a colourful shell
heavenly scented semi solid seen
on confectioners shelves everywhere
crafted by masters of the art and poured
over delicious treats such as strawberry or hazelnut
locking these flavours in for a time, but
as the shell is exposed to the slightest of heat
the shell cracks open – and the flavours
escape – enjoy

Double

#FOWC #Double

a sweet tasting response from inky to fandango’s latest one word challenge

Not your normal after dinner treat

it’s got two of everything, vanilla scoops, chocolate scoops, brownies, the lot

covered in drizzles of sweet chocolate syrup

even the wafer’s got a dash of cocoa running through it

pudding – a nice light one after that large dinner

unless you really fancy jam roly poly, swimming in custard

decisions , decisions

Chocolate Orange

Tap, and Unwrap

That’s how it goes

and a scent of orange

wafts up my nose

Scent – then a taste

of orange from oil

captured in chocolate segments

held in the foil

Dark light and White

Mixes of chocolate and zest

Melt in the mouth zing

A taste that’s the best

Post Christmas Pressies

#Christmas #Hidden #Sweets

7th January 2019

I received an extra present yesterday.

I’d been wandering what dad was going on about when he mentioned an extra present at the end of Christmas time

I’d enjoyed seeing the brightly coloured baubles on the Christmas tree, especially the new larger ones. They were twinkly inside. I just guessed they were part of the decoration

Time came and each of the baubles came off the branches of the tree

and Dad told me of his secret….The twinkly baubles actually contained SWEETS. The foil wrapping reflected the lights off the tree

and in one of the big round baubles , all coloured red was my special surprise – a bag of vanilla fudge.

Stop press….it’s not just my dear old dad hiding stuff in baubles. My provider of hot chocolate has been at it too…delivered on 7th January. so now there’s another metal bauble for the Christmas tree.

Countdown to Christmas

Tuesday 11th December

A little treat, hides behind the

Doors of the advent calendar

Veiled behind some cardboard and foil

Each door has something tasty behind it

Noting the days passing

Towards Christmas Day

Crafted from the cocoa bean and

Hot steamed milk

Out of the cold autumnal morning

Comes something warm and satisfying

Only your tastebuds can truly tell why you

Like it so much

As you send a biscuit in

The sweet smelling brew, for a bit of an

Ooze

hiding in the batter sleeve

the mars bar oozes out on to the plate

stopped by the vanilla ice cream
