Things I Love: Haribo Cola Gummi Candy

Haribo Gummi Candy, Happy-Cola, 5-Ounce BagI’ve spoken at length about my devotion to Marks & Spencer’s fruit gums. So if you can’t tell, I love gummy candies and one of the best in market has got to be Haribo’s Happy Cola Gummy Candy. It really is the perfect combination – coca cola and gummy candy. I happen to love both.

Each individual gummy in the bag is shaped like a coke bottle. For the most part, the texture is nice and chewy unless you get a rogue hard piece. The coke flavour is also very nice. I’m a fan fan fan.

But did you know it can get even better? Haribo also came out with Fizzy Cola. It’s exactly like the original, except with an added sour, sweet, tangy coating.

Fuckin delicious. Excuse my language.



Things I Love: Letters of Note

I discovered Letters of Note a few years back. Compiled by a man named Shaun Usher, it’s a blog that features an ongoing, eclectic collection of written correspondence from the past. Featuring snarky missives to love letters to fan mail from the famous, infamous, and never famous, the blog itself is a beautiful love note to the dying art of pen on paper.

In this age of email and texting (& tweets & snaps), it’s good for us to be reminded of the beauty, charm, and power of the written word. More than a few times, I was blown away by the eloquence of these writers, most of them normal man or woman like you and me. At other times, I’m either crying or laughing out loud when reading these correspondence. No matter the tone, each letter featured is precious because it evokes something in readers and gives you a glimpse of a moment in time.

My only regret reading this blog is that I probably won’t ever receive these kind of letters in my mailbox, not in this lifetime.

P.S. He also came out with 2 books. You can buy both on Amazon here and here.
