The High Of Low Tech

Nostalgia is creeping in...happens to me every winter. Some people get cabin-fever, I get these flashbacks from scenes of the 60's and 70's. I think it has to do with remembering snowy winters, hot chocolate and mini marshmallows and commercials that weren't high tech.

So I give to you low tech:

Almond Joy

Cracker Jacks

It's A Gum...No It's A Candy!!

Who didn't love Farfel The Dog?
Nestles makes the very best...


Toostie Pops

And finally a jingle I still can't get out of my head!

Once upon a time there was an engineer
Choo Choo Charlie was his name, we hear.
He had an engine and he sure had fun
He used Good & Plenty candy to make his train run.
Charlie says "Love my Good & Plenty!"
Charlie says "Really rings my bell!"
Charlie says "Love my Good & Plenty!"
Don't know any other candy that I love so well!

Living La Vida Cocoa

The Good Life, The Sweet Smell Of Chocolate
(guilt free indulgences)

Aquolina started with Pink Sugar, a wonderfully sinful vanilla perfume. I had my doubts when they came out with Chocolovers. Well I couldn't have been more wrong. This is subtle and sexy, hints of chocolate, patchouli, orange and vanilla.

After all this reading, and all the shopping...what better way to soothe away the stress than a Chocolate Spa Neck Pillow? The warm moist heat feels amazing, the subtle fragrance is relaxing, and you feel like you've just indulged without even feeling guilty!!
