An amazing phenomenon happens during the holiday season. Everywhere you go people are offering you sweets and treats. We were walking through some local shops the other day and my poor gluten-free daughter was probably offered cookies ten times before we went home.
As part of her advent calendar I have bags with little drawings on the front for each day. In it there is a little natural treat, or a craft or an activity to do. One day I put in a candy cane for both of the girls. They were happy, let me tell you.
I made them space the candy cane out three days, as it still has ten grams of sugar or so per candy cane. I loved watching them savor it. And I just might have enjoyed one myself! I really like them! They are sweet, but somehow with a more rounded flavor then most candy canes. It is hard to describe, but definitely a noticeable, but delicious difference.
All in all, I am really thankful for these delicious candy canes. I might crumble up some to top gluten-free cookies with too. Yum!
