Vintage Food Find

 I used to eat these all the time as a kid and grabbed some up the other day. This weird candy is made from a European wildflower that is part of the mint family. Its a strange flavor to say the least. Coated in sugar,  it has a sweet taste and then a bitter one. It’s one of those love it or hate it things. I like it.

It’s good for a sore throat and is known to have some medicinal qualities, although it is said to be an appetite stimulant (watch out now)and apparently you shouldn’t eat it if your preggers.

If you ever wanna try something unique…have some Horehound. Its also very fun to say fast 10 times.

Random Food word of the day: Bechamel

Had this tasty little french gravy on my croque-monsieur sandwich the other day at Manuel’s bread cafe. Fancy.

    Wow. The first pink dress looks like it was decorated with parts from about a half dozen “grandma” brooches. I love costume jewelry – this was really done well. Did she glue, sew or both? I’d say you scored! I also like the black and white dress – nice details. I think you would have to be a fashion forward gal to pull that off back then. Fun.

    Thanks for posting!

      Hi rktrixy-
      The dresses were handmade, but it appears to be by a skilled dressmaker, whoever they were.The work is all meticulously hand sewn. I love to guess who it was who made them and who actually wore them before me. It’s like wearing history..LOL:)

      Take care:)
