It is my youngest who is enamored with cows, but seeing as how I can’t buy something for one and not the other, I had to buy two cow glasses. Naturally, my oldest didn’t mind. But, I’ll keep a lookout for some dinosaur glasses, or bat glasses, or sea life, or….well, either way, my oldest would be content with a variety of choices.
The next purchase, determined by my husband were the ever enjoyable “snapper bombs”. Something a boy’s life should never be without, I presume. I would be remiss, however, if I didn’t mention my own nostalgia, considering how I enjoyed throwing them against cement sidewalks and other hard surfaces to procure the satisfying pop/snap sound.
The final purchase at Paddywhacks was a bag full of circus peanuts. Now please don’t confuse them with the gross, (I’m sorry, but I’m just not a fan.) peanut shaped marshmallow variety. In fact, although Paddywhacks had them labeled as circus peanuts, they are actually found online as Honeycomb Peanuts. In a nut shell, they are peanut shaped butterfingers without the chocolate, wrapped in a lovely orange-toned cellophane wrapper. I swear, when you happen upon a barrel of these in a store such as Paddywhacks you cannot leave without filling a bag with a scoopful or two.
In my travels, I have never encountered these Honeycomb Peanuts anywhere but in Clinton, NY. I successfully found them on Amazon.com and will be putting in an order shortly. Can we say stocking stuffers, basket-fillers and an apothecary jar perfectly placed for grabbing handfuls as you walk out the door?
