|Did you know if you..............
Read the Girl Scout Handbook from 1927 and you will find the recipe for S'mores! We use to
believe the term - S'mores meant "some more, please", but no one really knows for sure.
But , they weren't called smores then, but it was the first recorded recipe combining toasted
marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers.
Did you know if you....................
Studied the life of Thomas Alva Edison, you would discover when Tom was 12 years old, he
worked on the Grand Trunk Railroad as a "candy butcher"! Thomas Edison sold newspapers,
fruit, books, and candy! I wonder what a candy butcher was paid.....hum.........and why did
they refer to it as a "butcher"?
Did you know if you.........................
Read newspapers published in the late 1800's, a company, called Ganja Wallah Hasheesh Candy
Company, advertised candy made by combining Maple Sugar and Hashish!
This well established company legally sold Candy Hashish Concoctions for at least 40 years.
Sold over the counter at pharmacies, it was advertised in many newspapers as sweeties treats.
Wallah sold this product for 40 years. It was sold out in the open. It was purchased by many
consumers, in public, with no fear of the government.............(probably because their
grandparents remembered a little tea party held in Boston and the government stayed out of
peoples business and people weren't so politically correct and neighbors weren't stickin their
freakin noses over freakin privacy fences, in your own backyard, with that whinny screachin
voice of hers asking,.........."What's that funny looking flower growing there???" So you run
them off with a hoe and ................ahahah.....umhump.....excuse me.............sorry,
Anyway.........what was I saying?..........I can't seem to recall where I was...........O, well.....
About the hashish candy.......Do you know what this means???
This, my friends, means that the United States of America has a history of sweet eating people
who adore Maple Sugar Candies!
See, the candy........................ is love. Hurray for the candy~
