Polar Bear Gifts
My friends Cheryl and Dan Marshal just came back from their dream trip to Alaska. I haven't heard all the details yet, but I do know they went to the Arctic Circle and had lots of animal adventures. Cheryl also mentioned it was a grueling tour (on the road at dawn - as if you could tell it was dawn since the sun almost never set - traveling over rugged "highways," etc.) and beautiful scenery. She had some interesting comments about the benefits of the Alaska pipeline ... that's a whole 'nother post. Best thing about the trip - at least for me - were the Polar Bear Smooches. Polar Bear Smooches may be the best candy I have ever eaten and I have eaten a lot of candy in my lifetime. They are peppermint and white chocolate mixed into a creamy (but not soft) center, then wrapped in milk chocolate. As my teenager would say: OMG!! OMG!! OMG!!
So I have put the link to Alaska Jack's website here for your use. I plan to buy myself some of these things before too long (I got to sample a couple that Cheryl brought to a Crones meeting the other night). Also, I have a birthday coming up and you can send me some as a gift if you want to! If you get some for yourself and love them, let me know.
