MoFo 20 Candy and Such

I know. I know it's Monday and Germanfest Monday to boot or das boot.  I'll have something Oktoberfesty for you a few paragraphs down, I promise. I am really sorry I can't deal with the Fraulein Lipshitz costume right now. Heimlich aka Psycho Boy is having another stupid allergy attack and I don't want him to mess up his lederhosen. They are on loan. Heimlich is not.

I want candy. I didn't make any. As a rule I don't eat candy or processed sugar even in it's non bone char form. The powers that be must want me to stare and salivate over candy because this has been a newsworthy week for candy in our house.

First off guess what?! I won swag. I won swag. I won a nifty organic bag and quinoa chocolate and a coupon for free Coconut Bliss ice creme. Yeah, I won it from John's blog the Laziest Vegans in the World. I was so surprised that the swag got here super fast since John is lazy and might not have ever gotten around to putting my prizes in the mail. John got up off his recliner and away from his own stash of vegan raisinetts to mail it. Go John! So here I am staring at the chocolate, or is the chocolate staring at me? I've already used the bag. Swag. Thank you, John. Oh LVIW is the best place to learn about vegan convenience fun foods.


Then there is this really cool vegan online bakery Etsy shop opening up. Anne, the owner of Annabel's Lil Rescue Hen is a really kind pastry chef who loves saving chickens. Ann will distribute 30% of all proceeds to several rescue org. Anne currently has 16 chicken companions. Anyway I passed on a few Etsy tips to very sweet Ann, and she's been plying me with vegan treats to share with my friends ever since. Thank you for your generosity. I did take a few little nibbles as you can see by the teethmarks below. And everyone I have shared these goodies with has agreed that they are absolutely top notch and delectable.
If anybody else needs any tips from me in exchange for good things, I am here. Right here at this blog. I never leave.
I was just tooling around the net and found vegan candy land. It's not really called that it's called the Natural Candy Store. 

You can find this sucker there.
I guess I was supposed to share the very hearty Bavarian barley soup we had for dinner tonight, as promised. I don't think so. Now I understand why you are supposed to eat dessert after soup instead of before. I mean really... who wants barley after a lolly.
Ho hum guess we'll have to save the soup for a rainy day. That's life in candy land or Veganville.

  3. Poor CB. What is he allergic to? Does he need to live in a bubble during allergy season? It must be awful, especially since all you have to eat around there is candy instead of real food.

    Congratulations on your winnings — I had a run of good luck a few years ago but have been on a losing streak lately and don't win anything anymore. Maybe it's because I don't enter enough giveaways to beat the odds.

    About the wonderful Etsy bounty — perhaps you should offer tips to Etsy quilt makers.

    1. I know, thank you, Andrea. Who knows with him? He is such a nudnick. I keep telling him to wash is face with non-allergic facial cleanser, I don't think he's doing it, then he walks around all day with a tissue stuck in his nose to stop his nose from running. Don' ask.
      it's time for you to win!!!
      Quilts. Hahaha. They can replace Psycho Boy's bubble.

  9. Congrats on your win! I was lacking in the MoFo giveaway luck this year. Last year I won several, but this year my mailbox was most unhappy. :(
