The Return of Lime. It’s About Dang Time!!!

Sadly, I think way too much about candy. I remember certain candy from my youth and I miss it. When I was a kid I used to stuff Sunday newspapers at a candy store in the early morning along with my sister and sometimes my friends. We’d get paid in candy from that penny candy store. I can still remember it to this day and all of the tasty candy that I loved. I like tart and sour types of candy so I was a big fan of Sweet Tarts. Back then the green sweet tart was lime. There used to be a package of giant sweet tarts that were hard and not chewy. there also used to be Jolly Ranchers in sticks instead of the very small pieces that they have now. There also used to be lemon and pink lemonade jolly rancher sticks. My absolute favorite were Nerds and Rinky Dinks. Nerds are still around but Rinky Dinkys completely disappeared.

Rinky Dinks were made by Willy Wonka candies and there were two different boxes. There was a box with cherry, orange and lime and a box with grape, strawberry and lemon. They were about the size of tiny gobstoppers but they were tart and they had faces printed on them. The box separated each color and there was a flap with a hole in the box for each flavor so you could distribute only the colors you wanted. They were my most favorite candy ever.

Then there were Skittles. Skittles were created in 1974 but not widely made available in the US until 1982. These candies were really good because they also had my favorite flavors, Lemon, Orange, Grape, Strawberry and Lime. However, Lime was replaced by Green Apple. It seems as if so many companies have replaced the lime flavor with green apple and I was not happy about it. So, today when I found a bag of Skittles with the original Lime back I was quite happy.

Dr Pepper BBQ Ribs

When I think of the Summer and Summer fun I think of grilling. I love to grill. I love to grill so much that I take exceptional care of my grilling equipment to make sure that it is in the topmost working order. I recently got a brand new STOK grill that has these removable inserts and one of them was for ribs. Well, I could not wait to get started with that so for this #ShareFunshine shop I made sure that Dr Pepper® Cherry was going to become the sauce for my ribs. I had never made sauce before and so I found a few recipes to get inspired and then blended a few plus my own touches to make things truly unique to me and my style. Because, something that my friends and family know about me is how much I enjoy experimenting with flavor. Below you are going to get the complete recipe and some mouth watering BBQ photos. I hope that you enjoy them and try out my recipe yourself.
