Sweet treat from da' island, yah.

My dear friend, Connie sends me the most awesome happy mail packages. She's one of those gift-buyers who finds things that I love - things that I would actually buy for myself if I spent money on frivolous things that I love. You know what I mean?Connie lives in Hawaii, on the big island. For my birthday last week she sent me a package full of island treats, including a big ol' bag of Hershey's kisses with macadamia nuts. I was happy about the contents, and thought, "Wow, that's a BIG bag of kisses." Fast forward to the following day when we busted open the bag and I popped one of these bad boys into my mouth.

MOST. AMAZING. PIECE. OF. CANDY. EVER.

And the flags? They say "Aloha." How cute is that?!?!

I'm regretting that I let Carrie take a baggy full of them to share with her co-workers. I think I'll ration the rest of them and hide them for myself.

Thanks, Connie. You're the bestest friend ever (and I hold you personally responsible for the extra 10 pounds I'm going to pack on in the next couple of weeks)!

just the color of the tinfoil alone grabs me. those look very good. i would definately hide them. my husband would be eating them in the middle of the night.

Now that's the kind of friend we all need!
Those chocolates look so pretty - not to mention tasty. And as they were a birthday present, they obviously don't carry any calories ;-)

Cool! I wonder if they sell them on the mainland?

How "sweet" is that??!! I'm off candy/desserts/margaritas until I take off these cruise pounds!

I tried to catch up on all your posts last night--loved them all! Especially the pics and post about San Antonio! That restaurant looks and sounds like the same one we went to 9 years ago--was it? You look amazing in that cute hat--you should have bought it for yourself! xo
