Snowballs back?

Sadly, no.

I saw a sign as I was out and about last night that declared, "SNOWBALLS ARE BACK!" This was on a prominent sidewalk sign in front of a local candy store that makes their own confections.

Of course I stopped and rushed in to see if it was true. Alas, they were not the snowballs I have been looking for, the creamed filberts that I've written about before.

They had what they called "Buffalo Snowballs", described as macadamia nuts surrounded by chocolate, rolled in powdered sugar. I explained what I was looking for, and the young woman behind the counter had no idea what I was talking about.

So not only have we lost the candy, we are losing the knowledge of the candy. So sad.
