Mrs. Bridges Candy: tiny bits of happiness in a jar

Last weekend I was at TJ Maxx wandering the aisles in search of nothing in particular. Strolling over to the food area in search of hidden gems, I spied a beautiful little jar of hard candies which I had never seen before. Black current licorice was the flavor on the label, and seeing as how black current is one of my all-time favorites, the jar ended up in my cart.

These became parking lot candy (see previous blog entry) and I should have gone back into the store and looked for more.

These are truely old-time sweets. The flavors are pure, as they contain nothing artificial,  and the candies are little jewels. The brand hails from the U.K. where they are so much better at making candy than we are here, and I wish I knew why. Note to any English or Canadian readers, of which I proudly have several, please share your oppinions n this matter.

What I do know is that the next time I see any of these sweets. I’m hoarding them.

If you are over the age of 45, you may recall the wonderful series “Upstairs Downstairs”, and the cook Mrs. Bridges. These sweets (supposedly) come from her kitchen.

Mrs. Bridges has a web site and a wide variety of candies and preserves. Check it out, and be on the lookout at any store for her sweets. You will have found a treasure if you spot one. They are also available on amazon  These would make great hostess gifts, or treats at tea. I hope you find some soon. Cheerio!
