Easter Treats of the Non-Edible Kind

By  |  0 Comments

I won’t pretend to be totally innocent of over indulging in the sweeter ways of devouring the end product of cacao seeds, however, I can tell you first-hand that once the sugar rush ends, you are left with nothing except a hunger from more or an achingly full stomach.

So, let’s give children something that may be cherished for a little longer, even possibly eternity, by visiting a local toy store and spending a sum of money that is similar to that is charged for over-priced, over-packaged confectionary that is now brought to us by numerous non-Quaker-owned American conglomerates.
