Yum!

I love coconut! So, when I bought my boys a bag of
Dum-Dum suckers this week and noticed that there
was a new coconut flavor, I had to try it!
It's named Ashlynn Coconut because a little girl
named Ashlynn won a drawing where the winner
got to pick a new sucker flavor! Well, smart girl!
And I'm in love...yum...I wish they weren't such
small treats...they are gone WAY before I want
them to be! LOL! One lick and
I was immediately transported to
some place tropical, sipping on a pina colada,
with coconut scented sunscreen slathered all
over my body. Ahhh...and how appropriate since
just this week I bought my ticket to fly to
Sarasota, Florida for Easter! The gulf-side
coastal beaches are calling me! And you know,
I DO deserve a vacation if I say so myself! :)

  1. The dum dums sound delightful...I'll have to find the coconut flavor. Since I have no plans to be near any sort of warmer climate, maybe I will rub the dum dum on like sunscreen! ;-)

  7. I love tropical scents and pina coladas. We were at Bath & Body Works this evening and they have their summer scented lotions out now. I tried the vanilla coconut scent & it was heavenly. Maybe you should get some for your trip.
