I just looked at your profile Paloma. Southern Cali. That's not surprising. So many planes directly from Australia fly into LAX.


Miss Fluff, I live in the middle of no where. The only thing we have is Walmart. We don't even have a bookstore.


People, this is no fair flaunting your access to civilization/ VIOLET CRUMBLE BARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sugar.

It's crispy and airy.  Like molasses tinged cotton candy had a baby with english toffee.

Have you ever had those molasses-chips or molasses-thins from See's Candy.  The flavor reminds me of that except it's a puffed-up version.  They're good but too sweet to be eaten often.

Now I want one...

Sorry, yeah.  I live within an hour's drive of LA. You could always order a box.  I'll keep my eyes peeled for a good deal on them.

Personally, I have an obsession with Japanese snacks and candy and I'm constantly hitting up my Japanese connections to throw in extra items when they send a package. I know how it is.  :LOL:

I'll send you one.  They ARE good.  I used to get them all the time but after I had kids, I couldn't handle too much sugar.  I'm weak.  :(

Never had Japanese snacks. If you say they are that good, maybe that's a good thing. If you happen to see a VC, let me know how much it costs, just curious.

That sounds like what they call Fairy Food candy around here.

Edit: Yep, it is indeed Fairy Food:

"Although Buffalo, New York is best-known for its sponge candy, its history remains a mystery. As Gary Whitt from Ko-Ed Candies in Buffalo says, "Sponge candy has an identity crisis." It is known as Violet Crumble or Honeycomb in Australia, Cinder Toffee in England, Sea Foam in the United States' Pacific Northwest, Molasses Puffs in St. Louis, Missouri, Hokey-Pokey in New Zealand and Fairy Food in Chicago and Wisconsin."

Awesome. Is there any such thing as too much sugar? I never grew out of my child-like sweet tooth. I'll eat frosting that Travis and James think it's just too much.
