tasteful gift


what’s in this package? why do you ask me?
i can’t give it away ’til you open and see!
it’s something you’ll like, a favorite sweet
the taste of summer in this fair-time treat
so push, pull or twist it until you are daffy
jaw-open surprise…chewy salt-water _ _ _ _ _!















A riddle rhyme in the Swedish gift-giving tradition for Bjorn’s prompt at dVerse!

    I have no clue how they are made, but they are so very tasty… the perfect thing is to leave out the final rhyme… making it a game

    I’ve never eaten taffy, and I’ve been to the USA three times!

    Home-made taffy is the way to a man’s heart, pretty obvious here, Lynn

    It has been many years since I’ve tasted salt-water taffy. Thank you for reminding me of those days.
