Taffy Town: Sassy (Sour) Watermelon Taffy Review

Get Sassy with some Sour Watermelon Taffy from Taffy Town and a Giveaway

Summer is winding down, which means that watermelon season is also winding down. As summer began, I did not have much watermelon, but at the season progressed I found myself eating it more often.

Currently, Taffy Town has a *website exclusive* 1 lb bag of Sassy (Sour) Watermelon Taffy available! I love Taffy Town due to them using a whipping process to make each flavor. In addition there is a 24 hour-long batch conditioning process to each flavor that results in the purest and tastiest taffy around.

When I find a popcorn that is Non GMO, Gluten Free, Whole Grain, Kosher while popping to half the size of typical popcorn and is virtually hulless, I tend to stop in my tracks.

Nicks Sticks: Father’s Day 2017 Giveaway

Nick’s Stick’s: Stick’s for Dad Giveaway

One of the most difficult things I had to decide each year was what to purchase my dad for Father’s Day. My father is the type of father that has everything he needs, and there are few things that can be bought for him. Through the years I would make him items such as pencil holders and various art pieces. One of his favorite gifts was an album I made that was dedicated to our family dog, and this album is still a favorite.

There is no doubt though as he has aged, it is harder to think of things for him. As I got older there was always one “go-to” that included meat and nut items. I learned that if all else failed i could get him meat sticks and pistachios.

Since this has been a life long challenge for me I thought it would be nice to help you with your Father’s Day gifting with a Nick’s Sticks Meat Stick Assortment for the man in your life!
