I’m back from my latest Japan trip, and I picked up some new Kit-Kats! This time around, I got Purple Potato, Pumpkin Pudding, Rum Raisin, and Yokohama Strawberry Cheesecake.

I recently made a trip to England and Scotland and took a few sweets pics for your enjoyment!
For those who observe Passover, kosher for Passover candy can bring a lot of fond memories. Raspberry jelly rings, macaroons, fruit slices, that Barton’s chocolate you were encouraged to sell to your elders every year (just like girl scout cookies!).
