Look what my friend Rebecca brought me from T.J. Maxx this week.
Hammond’s is a stellar candy company in Denver. There’s a kiosk at the Denver airport which I always visit when I’m flying through. They’ve been making treats for 92 years, and all of their candy has that old- timey, handmade feel, and taste, while at the same time looking totally contemporary. Their candy canes are amazing.
These lemon sticks are a nice balance of tart and sweet. I like to break them up into small pieces. They’re sweet enough that one stick at a time is satisfying. They have stripes on yellow hard candy twisted over white, so pretty that I could see them as a lemon drop garnish.
Look for them the next time you’re in Denver (or at T.J. Maxx).
