NOW and LATER
I was recently at my last appointment with my acupuncture doctor. She has always had a bowl of candy at the check out desk. For the most part I can resist the temptation of the goodness inside - except that one time that there was dark chocolate in the bowl... and this time.
I happened to look down and an excited grin came across my face when I saw the familiar "NOW and LATER" wrapper. It's not that it's the BEST candy by any means but it is wrapped in childhood sentiment. I was instantly transported to my neighbors front yard where we would play along with her younger brother and sister. And it was at their house that I think I remember having my first taste of this delightful little "product of Mexico." Good times, remembered. Jumping on a trampoline, making a house out of big boxes, swimming in a kiddie pool, riding horses (good ol' Buttercup!), and so much more.
It reminds me of a Starburst at some level yet it is quite unique in and of its own. So, if you get a chance you should try them. And if I get a chance I really should buy some more... the THREE I took from the doctor's office just wasn't enough.
