Tricky McTrickster

This is my favourite Christmas treat. This one smells amazing but it's not edible. I found it at a local bath shop and had to get one for my cousin. She LOVES my mom's nanimo bar almost as much as I love it. For me, it just wouldn't be Christmas without it.

Maybe I'll even save a few peices of the real thing for her. Or not. With me around there isn't likley to be any left by the time I see her on the 29th!



And I just had to take a picture of this Candy Cane. Or is it a Candy Cane? Seems to me it's missing the very thing that makes it a Candy Cane. Jay came home with it from work. Seems his boss must be skimping... maybe the ones without stripes are cheaper?

Ooohhh. It's probably coconut flavored. Yum!

Pity the bar is not edible - it looks amazing! Hey, that could be a good strategy if you don't want to eat too much junk food - just a whiff of it could settle the cravings?!

I've never seen a candy cane sans stripes before! Weird!

That candy cane is strange! Maybe it's white chocolate or something? So, do tell, Kami. Just what is a Nanaimo bar? I must be living under a rock someplace, I've never heard of them! The fake soap one looks pretty tasty, however! :)

I made nanaimo bars today!

Hee!

I want to know the deal with the white candy cane.

You crack me up ;)

That bar looks good enough to eat to me. I don't know what a Nanimo bar is either. Now you're going to have to do a post just on those. LOL. Yeah, that candy can is a ripoff without the stripes. ;)

teeni said...

Yeah that should say candy cane not candy can. A candy can really is a ripoff. ;)

Does that candy cane taste like peppermint? How odd. Hope you have a good day. Kellan

OMG those nanaimo bars just added 10 lbs to my thighs by looking at it.

MY GOD, that looks sinfully delicious!

Love the pic of your son with the defect candy cane. :D
