MY CANDY CANE DILEMMA!
I have finally finished my Christmas decorating and I am getting ready for our annual Christmas Party on Saturday. I sent out my Christmas cards today so everyone will have them by December 1st. The only thing I am missing are my Candy Canes.
I just love Candy Canes. Not just for a treat but to decorate with. I put them all over the house in little cups or baskets and I have a cute paper mache Santa Head I fill up. Here is my dilemma. Where the heck are all of the red and white candy canes?
I'm sorry but I draw the line at Christmas with these hideous coloured candy canes. Come on, a candy cane is red and white. Make the coloured ones if you want but leave off the curl because they do not look like candy canes. It is like dressing Santa in a purple suit, it is just wrong.
The past couple of years the different flavoured and different coloured candys canes have flooded the stores here. I don't know about where you are but I am finding it really hard to get a nice sized red and white candy cane anywhere. They do have some tiny ones but I put the on gifts, hang them, adorn my baking and cocoa with them.
I even looked online but the only nice ones I found were $65.00 for 20. Yes you heard right I could not believe it either.
I will continue my search for the elusive traditional Candy Cane after my party, I am too busy until then. I will post some pictures tomorrow of my finally decorated home.
Have a lovely day everyone!
