honey drops from heaven





I got these honey drops at L'Artisanat Monastique. I was looking for stocking stuffers before Christmas, and these came in a perfectly-sized bag, so I bought them along with a few other bags of fruit-flavored ones.

They are made at a monastery (I think it's this one, although the packages in the photos are different from the bags I've bought), and I'm not trying to be witty or clever when I say that they -- the honey ones as well as the fruit-flavored ones -- are heavenly.

They taste... oh, how should I describe their taste... they taste subtle, gentle, lyrical. They taste as if angels are whispering into my mouth to give me quiet cheer.


They taste, I am a bit horrified but feel somewhat justified to say, like everything American supermarket candy is not.


I confess that I have actually gone back since then to get more. 

My husband wishes I hadn't.  My son's not complaining.

We have got to go shopping together!

Let's bring our calendars on Sunday and plan dates for Japanese and Vietnamese restos.
