  1. This was always my sweet Mother’s favorite.  I can remember going downtorm St. Louis with her and she would get a pound.  Great memories from long ago.  I am unsure if it was from Famous-Barr or Styx Baer and Fuller.

  2. Love the recipes you posted so far. My grandsons will probably love trying some of these. Thanks for the recipes.
