Review: Ambrosia Candies

Melissa from Ambrosia Candies contacted me a few weeks ago about reviewing her homemade soft peanut brittle.  The recipe has been passed down from her grandmother, and is gluten, dairy, cholesterol, and preservative-free; phew!

The brittle arrived quickly, and not a moment too soon, for the PMS monster was raging in my house.  This delicious brittle kept Troy and Jack from being sold to gypsies, so in my opinion, it's a huge win for everyone involved!

So that I would have multiple unbiased sources, I had the boys try it too.  Troy described the taste as "awesome old timey candy", and Jack just said "more please mommy".  I had to hide it to keep their grubby mitts out of it.
