Today was Day #3 of Chocolate and Cherries Theme Week. This sweet little chocolate mound, with a hint of almond flavor, contained crushed peanuts which added crunchy texture, and was stuffed with cherry goodness: a sugary cherry creme, cherry syrup, and an actual cherry in the middle.
This classic packaged candy was from Boise-based Idaho Candy Co., a company that also offers the Idaho Spud -- another classic. While I don't remember eating this candy as a child, it's fun to conjure up a pretend scenario where I did -- sitting out on a porch on a summer day, with cherry syrup dripping onto my shirt no doubt.
