Non-Chocolate Treats

Sometimes, I don’t even want to deal with the stress of wondering whether chocolate is going to be a migraine trigger or not. I just want to eat something sweet and enjoy myself. During the years, I’ve discovered some non-chocolate treats that I want to eat even if I’m not avoiding chocolate, and I probably wouldn’t have discovered them if not for my migraines. Here is my list so far:

Goetze's Caramel Creams

Fralingers Salt-Water Taffy

Boyer Smoothie Peanut Butter Butterscotch Cups-like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup sans chocolate. Usually find them at retro candy type stores.

Penuche and Maple Pecan Fudge

Whoppers Reese's Peanut Butter

Zagnut-crunchy peanut butter and toasted coconut bar.

Pralines-my favorite ones are from Aunt Sally's in New Orleans.

Divinity-a fluffy, air like candy with a crisp outer layer.

Does anyone else have any other non-chocolate treats that I can add to my list??

Do you like ginger? Crystallized ginger is yummy and good for the tummy. If I'm home i like toasted English Muffins with lots of butter and ginger marmalade. Very comforting!
