All Spent up

I don’t know what you’d call it

Inflation , perhaps ?

If you took your single gold coin

Inside the confectioner’s

It would give you half the bag of boiled sweets

Instead of what you got last year

In fact you wouldn’t get any change

It would leave you with empty pockets.

Combination

#Fowc #combination

some call it a recipe

others a mixture

several ingredients

coming together in a bowl

to form the perfect pudding

and it isn’t the flour , butter or eggs

that are the star of the show

or even the fruit thats gone in or over it

no – this is a team effort

served up on a serving spoon after the chicken dinner

key question – anyone for custard?

Indulge

#fowc #indulge

Fudge!

The stall it caught you unawares

and for a while all you did was stare

at the sweet and flavourful things on display

you bought a bag, and made your way

your favourite things held in a bag

like some sweet toothed burglars swag

coconut, cherry, vanilla and cream

all sat in a bag – your sweet tooth’s dream

but now you find its gone half past six

and you find yourself in an almighty fix

for the sweet stuff can wait – to a degree

as dad has made sausages for tea

so you wait for a while – and enjoy your tea

whilst the cubes of sweetness wait with glee

till your taste buds start to jump and stomp

and on pieces of fudge – you do chomp

Cotton Candy

Crafted from wisps of warm sugar

out of the machine it forms

taking the shape of a cloud

the cloud rises on the warm air

on some occasion, it has to be caught in the

nick of time, before it floats off on its own

Could there be a treat sweeter than this

as the candyman catches the cloud

numbers of children watch as its

delivered on the stick, all

yelling they want one – its such a sweet favorite

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

Millionare’s Shortbread

4th May 2019

funny what I can come up with, when I’m peckish


Sandwiched together
hot off the confectioners table
oblong biscuits of loveliness
rippled with caramel and chocolate
taken usually with a nice cup of tea
crafted by an artisan
and served up as part of an afternoon lunch
keeping watch, children with a sweet tooth
expecting a piece of this dessert after the sandwiches

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.

Bag O’Sweets

#food #sweets #confectionary

Open up your bag and round

a quarter of sweets for half a pound

a drumstick lolly that’s hard to beat

lemon drops for a special treat

chocolate footballs and fizzy drops

the magic candy that fizzes and pops

cola bottles and sherbet tubes

candied shrimps and pineapple cubes

Now , don’t eat them all now,

they’re a treat, we agree

but eat them all and you wont eat

the fish and chips for your tea!

Usually on birthdays

Delightful cubes of butter sugar and cream

Get sent to the house

Easily a delightful treat

Fairs at Christmas time

usually have stalls selling this

delicious treat, and it’s not just cubes

great shapes are made using cutters

expect strawberry hearts, mint chocolate rounds and raspberry diamonds

Treat

That Tin box in the Christmas bag hides something

Really sweet and tasty

Everyone knows its something special

As you don’t have it to excess

Thing is – you can have some every day – after you’ve eaten your dinner
