|Spearmint and Cinnamon Pillow Candies
I remember visiting my Aunt Bea during the holidays growing up. As soon as we made it through the initial polite conversation my sisters and I would gradually ooooch over to her beautiful cut crystal candy dish. Filled with excited anticipation, we would gently lift the heavy lid off the dish. Waves of quiet glee would come over us as we saw the delights Aunt Bea had chosen to put in the dish. I can still smell and taste my favorites: the beautiful ribbon candies, glistening candy shaped into gentle ruffles, my very favorite was the green clove flavor. I also remember the pretty, shiny ruby colored pillow sticks filled with a fruity, creamy taste of raspberry.
In and amongst the sweet felted critters were beautifully crafted sweets from The Hammond Candy Company in Denver. Colorado.

What a flash from the past!! I had an aunt who brought it for us every year at Christmas and I always anxiously awaited her arrival! I think they just might warrant a revisit online!
