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.

Fudge

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

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

Banana Split

Flavorful

Bananasplit

Served up in a glass bowl

Wonderful fruit combines with frosty ice cream

Everyone smiling as the bananas are

Enveloped by the Ice cold tastes of strawberry and chocolate and cream

Together – as they melt and mingle – they make a heavenly delight

of Trafford and Regent Road

looking out for

local hoods

its possible – he could have had a sugar rush

playing around with his favourite sweet

on occasion making eyes with the

popular girls walking by – “who loves ya baby?”

Pink Sherbet

#Colouryourworld #Cyw #Pinksherbet

Sweet to me that’s what you are

Hot pink sugar fizzing on the tongue

Every girls favourite candy

Running riot at the school hall hop

Boys cant wait for the chance to

Entertain you on the dance hall floor

To grab a taste of your kisses

 

Cotton candy

whispy wires of candy

softly rising into a soft tornado

gathering in pace as it goes

 

sensational sugar collides

against the  tornado catcher

fallen to be reused again

 

whisps gather pace

collecting speed and sugar

as a sweet cirrus begins to grow

 

floating sweet dreams

fly high in the air

caught by the ice cream man

 

man looking in has to use great skill

to gather the coloured pink cloud

to create smiles on waiting faces

Fudge :)

Butter meets pan

Sugar melts in butter

Both held by cream

Sweet little cubes

settle down in the fridge

but don’t set like jelly

Chocolate, Cherry, Mint

Lined up in rows alongside Vanilla

Coconut – a favourite

cubes of sweetness

transported to the tongue

heading for hips
