My latest find comes courtesy of nostalgic candy shop Smeeks.
These La-Dee-Dahs salted caramels came in a charming box that instructed me, "Spoil Your Dinner." How could I argue? I ate all three of the soft little swirls in one short sitting, smiling back at the package. This is candy to stock up on.
