Everyday is better when we end with something sweet

February 15, 2013

One of my favourite things to do is settle down for a movie and put together a big bowl of mixed sweets – it’s like when you used to pop into Woolworths and get a pick’n’mix. Oh gosh, I do love a good sweet treat! Especially when they are a fizzy sweet treat. Ever since the Vegan Store discontinued their penny sweet range there has been a sweet-shaped hole in my diet – since then there are a few other brands who have given us fizzy sweets, and Need Sweets are one of those!

When Need Sweets got in touch to let me know about their new business, I was super excited! Everything on the site is vegetarian or vegan, and clearly labelled. Heaven. I am absolutely in love with the Fizzy Fish – they remind me of being a kid. And also because they are Trout-shaped. They taste like crunchy bursts of sherbet, so good. And fizzy cola bottles have always been a firm favourite! They also offer marshmallows, fudge, coconut ice, kola cubes, flying saucers… Now they just need to make jelly beans vegan!

Did everyone have a nice Valentine’s Day? Mid-morning I was delighted to receive a huge bunch of flowers, with a reference to Breaking Bad. This guy knows what I like, haha! I didn’t think he could top last year’s flowers, which were a reference to The Office, but I think he might just have! Rasputin was pretty smitten with them, too. Oh that cat – he just loves to chew on plastic. Sigh.

When I got home from the soup-run in the evening, I found Trout cooking up a storm! He made the most amazing 2-and-a-half course meal, including one of my favourite foods; bruschetta. That is one sweet man.

Do you love sweets? Have you tried Need Sweets? How was your Valentine’s Day?

    Eeee I am a huge sweet lover. I used to get the pick n mix in Woolworths once a week when I was a kid and loved travelling in the car and when I saw a service station I’d be like…’Daaaaad…’ just so we could stop and get some sweets hehe! :) These look amazing, I used to order some from ;)
    Glad you were spoilt on valentine’s day you lucky girly! xxxx

    What a beautiful bunch of flowers…I don’t get it when girls say they’re not bothered about flowers and boxes of chocolates – they’ll always be romantic to me :-) As for the sweets….i’m a sour and fizzy gal all the way :-) Cola bottles and sour apples = best cinema treats as a child :-) ooh….and chocolate peanuts but that’s another story ;-) xx
