a little taste of heaven

when i was in elementary school some kid brought some candy to school and shared some with me.  i remember how much i loved that candy (probably when i became such a huge candy freak).  i asked my mom if she would  ever so kindly buy me some bon bons from the store next time she went.  well i came home from school one day and my ever so happy mom presented me with bon bons, all i could say was mom, those aren't it.  little did i know that the treat that kid shared with me is only available over seas and all my many years of searching would be a waste of time until.......we went to visit my parents in england and i stumbled upon them at this beautiful castle.  i thought i was going to die right there.  my mouth started salivating and that amazing taste came racing back.  stupid me only bought two bags of them and my dad and i had them gone before the days end.  i found some more at this cute little candy store and bought like 2 lbs.  yep.....they were gone before the plane landed back in the us.  so for two years i have missed those little bon bons.  i was telling this story to my brother and he was like, "i have that same memory." as he was probably jumping out of his chair at the thought of actually get to have those again.  they ventured off to england a few weeks ago and nicely enough brought me home some bon bons.  i had no idea i was going to get this many!!!!!!!! i have already eaten so many that i have made myself sick, but i just can't resist them and let's face it, i'm pregnant and can eat what i want!  cheers to bon bons!  thanks ben and ash for sending me this great treat!

So I had an English nanny growing up and happen to know you can find a lot of European sweets (including your beloved bon bons)at this site... not sure if this is good for me to be telling you or not considering you already made yourself sick on them! haha https://www.jollygrub.com/OnLineStore1/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=3806&zenid=920f54a0df45d7c7f4021972ec3334ba
