I realize I have not blogged in awhile. Life has been bananas! What else is new? I got engaged, started school again, and got a new job. So blogging has begun anew. I have a lot of old pairings to share with you, so in between life things, I’ll try to remember to share a post now and then!
Today’s post will be on a very interesting pairing with a candy called Potato Candy that we acquired at an old-timey candy shop in Harper’s Ferry, West Virginia.
Let’s dive in shall we?
The Wine: Tiki Estate, Sauvignon Blanc, Australia
The Candy: Depression Era Potato Candy
I didn’t have any idea what this candy would taste like. All I knew is the woman who sold them to us (www.truetreatscandy.com) said you wouldn’t BELIEVE there was potato in the candy. I didn’t know how sweet they would be, but I knew peanut butter would be a factor so I chose a white to balance the thick peanut butter.
Y’all, peanut butter candy is delicious! Honestly order it if you can and check it out. We were gobbling it up. It’s very sweet and doesn’t, as the woman said, taste like candy at all.
The wine tastes like green grass and leaves and is very dry. The wine went pretty well with the candy, but the potato candy is pasty and overwhelms the mouth slightly. Overall thought a delicious experience.
Have you tried potato candy before? If not, see if you can find it or a recipe! If you are allergic to peanuts, perhaps almond or cashew butter would be a nice substitute.
