I love sugar.
Sugar makes me happy.
Sugar comforts me.
I have a sweet tooth to rival Ben and Jerry.
But lately sugar is letting me down.
Sugar has started to make me feel bad.
It has made me feel uncomfortable in my own skin.
So now sugar has to go – at least until I can break the addiction and learn to control it.
I have to share some of my favorites first in An Ode to Sugar!
An Ode to Sugar
I just can’t get enough. There is little more satisfying than a delicious ice cream cone from the local shop. Perfect for cooling you off on a summer day after splashing at the beach or celebrating a birthday when paired with a wax kissed yellow, chocolate, or marble cake.
Sunday morning is nothing without donuts. Filled, powdered, and sprinkled – I love them all. Paired best with a cold glass of chocolate milk.
Give me all of the candies!!! While chocolate will always be king, I do love a good lollipop or Jolly Rancher. Candy is easy to store in your pocket for a long trip and makes a great simple gift for a friend having a rough day.
I have come across very few people who do not like a cupcake. They are the perfect size to satisfy the sugar carving when it hits. They can come in so many flavors and designs. All the delight of a full sized cake, miniature!
Do you have a sweet tooth?
What is your weakness? Are you good at keeping your sugar in check, or do you struggle the way that I have? How do you keep yourself from going overboard?
