Happy New Year, folks!
How time flies! It’s the second day of 2018 already, and before we know it, we will have stepped into another year! But, that’s how the Universe functions, isn’t it? We just have to keep moving, keep living.. and keep eating! Hehe..
So, welcome to the first FlavoursomeTuesday of the new year!
When I was a kid, we did not have too many ‘sinful’ things calling out to us from every other shop window, like the kind of cakes, chocolates, candies and what-nots do these days. There were just a few, and I for one, was not too crazy about it all.
But, there’s something that we got back then which is also very much a favourite today, which is fluffy and pink and wrapped on a thin stick. Yeah, candy floss! We used to call it ‘budhiya ke baal’ (granny’s hair! Eww!)
A guy used to make the rounds of our neighbourhood on his bicycle. He would have these pink, fluffies packed in small plastic packets which were all strung together, all of which appeared like a huge pink mass following him everywhere. He would ring the bell of his cycle incessantly to attract our attention and make a sale of the pink, fluffy wares.
Mother had warned us of the aftereffects of eating that awful stuff for it was prepared out of god-knows-what! And, being the good kids that we were, we kept distance from the guy and the stuff he sold. So much so, that to this day, I haven’t touched it, leave alone tasted it!
Sorry, sorry! I know many of you are fond of it, but I just can’t imagine myself eating the pink mass of fluff. Too much sugar and the dubious colour used to make it all pink-y and attractive!
However, for those of you who love it, I am sharing this picture I found on Pixabay the other day when I was surfing around.
Feast your eyes on it and enjoy! And, have a fabulous new year!
And, if you have any food-related stories/memories, or any recipes, then do share them on your blog with the hashtag #FlavoursomeTuesdays.
