Continuing this month's winter theme, today's edibles could have been found in a candy snowdrift (perhaps in Minnesota). Cadbury's Snow Bites (chocolate balls "in a crispy white dusted shell") were combined with (black licorice) snowman "buttons." I'd wanted to combine chocolate with licorice for awhile. These licorice buttons were made with soy instead of wheat (which I can't eat); so I jumped at the chance to buy these last month.

Hats off to those shoveling cars out of real snow drifts somewhere east of here, and best wishes to Cadbury in the U.K. The company continues to make news this month as the subject of a bidding war/takeover battle -- with Kraft, Ferrera, and Hershey as suitors.
