Adieu, doux ami

I am not a big dessert eater.
I love a piece of cake, or pie like the next person,
but I don't keep it around the house.
I don't eat dessert on a daily basis.

But this Christmas my St. Louis kids
 gave me a little box of chocolates.
They're not big candy eaters either,
 but were just celebrating the joy of giving goodies.

Who would know what lurked inside
this plain brown box.

4 chocolate truffles,
(with sea salt)
that were as delicious as anything I'd ever tasted.

I have a lot of willpower in some things.
Candy is one of them.
Once I opened this little jewel I made the decision
that I couldn't overdo it.

Two bites a day.

That's all.


But now they are gone,
And like a friend who has moved.
I miss them.

Good thing there isn't one of these close by.

What kind of candy is YOUR favorite?
And do you indulge,
or ration it?

Goodbye, "sweet" friend.
