In my childhood these two words brought a shot of excitement to my body that could only be matched by the adrenaline rush of sugary goodness I would soon partake.
Today, I introduced my children to one of the greatest candy creations since the peanut butter cup. How can you possibly go wrong with a solid sugar substance that you lick and then place into a powdery sugar substance. Simply ingenious!
After coaching Olivia as to the importance of not eating the stick, she and Whitney then began the half hour process of licking and dipping. During this time of consumption I learned something extremely important that I must share with all parents, so pay close attention.
If your kids are talking your head off (I know, that's really funny coming from me) or simply driving you bonkers, might I suggest this 65 cent investment.
Once I gave them each their individual Fun Dips they sat at the table in silence licking and dipping. Occasionally one would look at the other and say, "Hmmm...this is good!" and that was pretty much it. The rest of time was spent in glorious silence. That is of course until the sugar kicked in followed by constant running around the living room coffee table.
However, I know something they don't know. Every sugar rush comes with a sugar low and their should kick in right around bed time. Simply ingenious!
