Happy Hour: Candy from Across the Pond
Jun 19, 2015
In January, Hershey’s won a lawsuit that stopped the flow of British-made candy to America from the largest private importer. Brand’s like Cadbury are still available, but the candy is made in Pennsylvania, with a different recipe. Many of my well-traveled friends (and The New York Times) claim that the candy is far superior to the American-made version, largely due to ingredient restrictions.
So what’s a chocolate lover to do? Amazon. Amazon will solve everything.
I ordered the candy from Stateside Candy Co.. The process was fairly simple. I placed my order, and received an e-mail from the seller a couple of days later asking what I wanted (with some suggestions of popular items). A few weeks later, I was enjoying a delicious Curly Wurly.
Imported candy could be a fun thing to serve at a barbecue or birthday party. I also like the idea of using it as a wedding favor. It’s just something unique to serve guests, and it’s a bit of a conversation starter. I posted the above photo on Instagram and ended up with lots of comments on people’s favorite treats.
So what do you wear when eating candy at home? (Whatever the hell you want, but since this is a fashion blog, let’s pretend there’s suggested attire.)
My usually at-home attire is a pair of Zella leggings. However, it’s always nice to mix it up your attire, even if you are the only one who will see it.
These soft lounge pants from Old Navy are a great buy. Very comfortable, kind of fun with the pineapple print, and perfect for relaxing. They also come in a grey print.
