Christmas is Saved! Creme Drops to the Rescue!
Lookee what showed up on my doorstep today! The good folks at Zachary heard my desperate call for some of their Creme Drops. (As you may recall, we've looked high and low for these Christmas favorites.) I've never had them myself, but they were exactly what I thought. The center is an odd texture; definitely not creamy, but not chewy, either. Kind of like the filling in a York Peppermint Pattie, except that it's thicker and crumblier and, of course, vanilla-flavored, not mint.
Needless to say, the Sugar Baby heard the doorbell when the UPS man rang it, so there was no hiding these from him. I went the bribe route: if he took a nap, he could have one when he woke up. Guess what? It worked.
