Treats - Passing On Confectionery Traditions

“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt.” - Charles M. Schulz  
   It's not secret that The Cheeky Daddy loves chocolate. Some years ago, I was introduced to the wonderful world of Terry's Chocolate Orange. I normally do NOT like fruit with my chocolate, and I prefer milk over dark. I loved the amount of chocolate you get with each orange, and I adore the way you are encouraged to "whack it" on the table before opening to loose each piece from one another. I LOVE the summary given at Candy Critique.
   At this time in my life, I seek opportunities to pass on my habits, music choices, and favorite movie lines to my children. While at a local store, I saw a row of Terry's Chocolate Oranges on the shelf and asked my 'Lil Man if he wanted to give one a try. He loves citrus, and won't say no to chocolate, so we got one. I broke him into the world of proper orange smacking technique. He LOVED it! The whole experience of choosing, smacking, opening, and eating, was a super fun experience to have and pass on to my little one.

You can even "Like" them at Facebook here.

I'm really enjoying passing on traditions, favorites and the like. It helps to build a bond with my children, and share more than the oxygen in our living room.

What are your favorite confectionery treats to share with others?

    1. You're not kidding. Try telling a 3 year old boy to stop after he's learned it's GOOD to slam that thing on the table. BAM! BAM!
