We actually went for a later Mass today as our favorite priest, Father Edward Fitzpatrick, has his retirement Mass today.
This allowed me to kill some time on the Washington Street Mall and go down to James/Fralinger salt water taffy.I was so enamored of the one I had last weekend at Douglass Candies’ in Wildwood, I figured I’d try a competitor out for size.
Hah! Size matters to Douglass, but obviously not the James/Fralinger molasses paddles.For all purposes you could have bit into and eaten a whole James/ Fralinger one while still chewing your first bite of your Douglass’ molasses paddle.The competition has a quick dip in a dark chocolate coating, whereas Douglass’ paddle came out like it went into a dark chocolate spa.
So there you have it, my friends-if you want low-calorie and mediocre dark chocolate dip, satisfy yourself with the competition.
Me? Only Douglass molasses paddles will do the trick!
