Shark Bites in Your Mouth. That is the name on the packaging – really!
Last year we had Pigs in Blankets that flew out of here. Yes pigs can fly!
This year the same company has expanded to make Shark Bites in Your Mouth.
These are oven-safe silicone molds that make treats that look like sharks eating wieners. You just pop a little wiener in the mold, pour in pancake batter, bake them in the oven and get this:
You can also use this mold for other things like ice cubes or chocolate. And I think you could make the treats without wieners by putting cheese or fruit or chocolate chipits as a substitute.
I wonder if I can make muffins in it too? Or cupcakes?
Now shark muffins would make your lunch look spiffy (and probably ensure it would be stolen).
I drove into the parking lot and glanced at the reader board.

I had forgotten about the Coffee Tea Sale! All coffee and tea and stuff is 20% off. That includes teapots, tea cozies and coffee filters.
See you at Scoop N’ Weigh, the Candy Store for Grownups!
P.S. We also have a supply of Pigs in Blankets. But not for long, they are flying again.
P.P.S. This is another new thing we have – Rookie Stix.
These are easy to use chopstix for clumsy people – me. (It is not shame calling if you are included in the category.) Because they are one piece plastic, they seem to have the right amount of spring and pinching to pick things up. So you won’t starve. And you can spear the last shrimp before anyone else!
We also have these cutesy ones with animals on top, but I think you have to have better dexterity than I have to get any food to your mouth.
For those of you that are trying to avoid single use utensils, Rookie Stix would fit nicely in your purse or bag – light to carry and you won’t lose one of the sticks in the bottom and be forced to eat your food with only one stick. You will never get that last shrimp with one stick!
P.P.P.S. These are Beer Buddies.
As I write this I am munching on them; they are small pretzel sticks. And because they are small, they are all outsides, so they are salty, crunchy and toasty tasting. And go well with beer…or cocktails or soft drinks. They are a movie/sports game/cards night food, not messy, easy to eat and addictive. They are not greasy like chips and they are also vegan friendly.
P.P.P.P.S. We also have Pretzel Rods in stock. You wouldn’t think these would be so hard to find, yet the companies that used to make them no longer do. And we have to order early to ensure we get a delivery.
In case you wonder, customers dip them in chocolate and roll them in nuts, candy or sprinkley things to make treats.
P.P.P.P.P.S. Finally, we have Prune Paste again; after a bit of a discussion with the supplier. Turns our this is another thing that is hard to find. We almost didn’t get it but, I begged and we have our first pail. We are supposed to get more (fingers crossed), but I would not dally if you need a supply. I can’t even suggest another store that carries it.
A lot of these regular Christmas baking supplies are now being deemed as special orders by our suppliers, which is defined as, they don’t think many people make this any more, so they will only sell it to me if I order it really early and grovel.
Who would think Vinarterta is not important at Christmas?
