Here’s something new I learned about thanks to Food Sherpa, an online purveyer of small batch artisan foods made around the country. Food Sherpa offers 1 item per day at reasonable prices to those who sign up with them. Yesterday I was super intrigued by Key Lime Flavored candy straws made by Hammond’s Candies in Denver. Perhaps you’re familiar with Hammond’s via Williams-Sonoma who have featured their candies in store catalogs since 1995.
By the time I tried to purchase these drink straws they were sold out but the concept jives so well
with summertime….carving out time to savor good times and treats despite whatever crises may be swirling around us on any given day. These porous Key Lime flavored straws are made to dissolve and sweeten your iced tea as you sip it. I’m thinking unsweetened sun tea brewed in a canister out on my deck…filling a cup with ice…adding the tea…and sticking one of these sweet yet tart key lime straws inside….and sipping slowly…
