~candy colours~


jujubes are a family favourite
can you guess which 2 colours are the first to go
and which poor colour is always left in the bottom of our jar?


So sorry if I have not visited you in a while......I hope to do so soon
life has been crazy busy lately

Hugs to you all
 now I am off to have a jujube or two
just wish they had blue and pink ones

Love jujubes! Ever had chocolate covered ones? Mmmm.... they are the best.

At our house, the first to be gone would be the red ones. And then the green ones. And then the yellow ones. And then the black ones would be eaten by my mom when she came to visit... unless they were covered with chocolate... I would then eat the black ones first! :)

Hope you are having the loveliest of weeks Koralee!

Pink is the first to go?

Jujubes! Oh my goodness, they remind me of when I was a child. My grandma always had them in abundance waiting for us. I still love them very much, and just introduced them to my little one this past holiday season when I added them to the gingerbread house. (she stills asks for them even though I haven't bought anymore...)

My guess is that red is the first to go? Green is the last? It was always like that for us. :)

Lots of hugs to you dear Koralee, and don't worry about making it to my blog at least. It'll still be there to welcome you when you get some more time. :) Xoxo

I don't recall ever tasting that candy. Are the black ones licorice? That would be my favorite.

Yum--those are delicious and you can just have one and let it melt for awhile! Looks like the black ones disappeared! I like green. Linda

Jennifer @ Studio JRU said...

Yellow is always the last to go around here to! lol

Elyse said...

hi koralee,

i feel the same way ... no worries, sweets.

hmm. for me, red would go first; orange last. although, i'd probably make a citrus combo of orange-yellow-green. although truthfully, i'm a mike and ikes girl.

Maria said...

Hmmm, I would eat the lemony ones first :o)
Koralee, I'll bet you ARE busy getting ready for Molly's return...
I'm glad you had that extra day. It will be sooo nice to have your whole family all together. I hope you are feeling well and that your back is keeping up with your days.
Now, take two jujubes every 10 minutes for good measure!
sunshine and joy to you, Koralee*

Orange and red are our first! for sure!

Rosie said...

Hello Sweet friend,
Well, lets see...Red and Orange are MY favorites. AND, one MUST feel sorry for those lonely little Black and Yellows, that are ALWAYS layin' around...just hopin' SOMEONE will be desperate enough, to rescue one or two of these babies.
Hope your having a fine week, tying up all the loose ends that will bring this year to a close.
Hugs to you dear one...Rosie

Oh dearest, talk about BUSY.....I am sitting here having gotten up at 3:15am just to get to my comments! I am also considering calling in for a sub, but I can't...it is too late. TOO MUCH TO DO and it is only going to be worst next year. BUT JUJUBEES ARE ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA to soften the blows of busy lives! I used to love to take these to the show in the days of going to the cinema! Oh how I wish they made blue ones too!

I hope you get ALL your goals accomplished in a timely way dear one...sweet hugs to my sweet friend, Anita

♥Ingrid♥ said...

Sweet picture dear Koralee,I choose the yellows....x

delia hornbook said...

Marilyn said...

I haven't had jujubes in many years. Now I must search them out.

June said...

Did yo know they are my all time favorite candy. My dentist hates them, but I love them so....
I go for the reds first myself. I have to beat Dale to them though. lol!

malia said...

Bringing Pretty Back said...

These remind me of my Aunt Lori that passed away from cancer three years ago. She was my moms sister and my favorite aunt. She always bought me these growing up. Thank you for the SWEET memory.
The reds are the best!
The green are always the last to go!
Have a pretty day!

Eva said...

Looks great! I like the candy jars filled with colourful sweets - but they never stay like this for very long...

I like the red and green ones most...

pollydove said...

fee @ chipper nelly said...

I don't think we have these things you call jujubes! (but they look very much like midget gems!)

My favourites are red and black - and noone in our house likes the green ones!

Jooles said...

my guess is that the yellow remain in the jar and the black and orange go first
thats what would happen in my house :o)
hope life calms down for you soon

Not Just a Waitress said...

If it's like freeze-pops in this house...the red get left in the freezer all winter!!!
This post made me giggle because I have a friend named Jessica and I call her "Jujubee." :)
Your posts always seem to make me smile. :) :) :)

I hope you will be rooting for the Bruins tonight, my friend!! :) :) :)

Jenny said...

I love green and yellow most but not the black and orange, so they would be left til last! hehe xx

~*~ saskia ~*~ said...

I would pick red and green (first red then green). Tell me, are there any left ;)
You must be so very busy this week my sweet friend. Sooo many exciting things to look out to! Take your sweet treats in time!
Love to y o u o xx o

Amber Blue Bird said...

I always go for the red first and then green (apparently Saskia and I are JuJubes soul mates)

myletterstoemily said...

Hi Koralee,

Your candy jar is so pretty, red and orange are my favourites and green are usually the last sweets in our jar.

Happy rest of the week

Of course, the red ones would be my favorite. And, the licorice ones would be my least favorite, followed by the green ones. Very pretty candy jar. It's almost the weekend. Are you gonna party like a rock star? I need some pretty weather, so I can get back to my planting. Big hugs, my friend!
xo,
Sena

I hope this makes you laugh, Koralee, but when I was in highschool (150 years ago) my boyfriend and I would double date to the movies and the boys would pop this candy into their mouths and then throw them at unsuspecting teenage boys (because they would stick when wet). Thanks for reminding me of that silly time in my life! :)

fernandflora said...

I've got candy on the brain too! Just finished off a package of Darrell Lea Australian strawberry licorice.
It's so soft and is sort of the shade of strawberry lemonade. Love it!

Hope you'e week slows down so you can enjoy some candy and r&r! xo friend

Privet and Holly said...

Even though we
are in healthy
mode around here,
now, I believe in
a little treat every
day and I like the
idea of these because
they take a long time
to eat : ) I'm partial
to the licorice ones!

**CREATIVE CARMELINA** said...

I'm more of a chocolate lover myself!
But if I have to eat candy instead, then it's lemon and orange ones for me!

Visit when you can, no worries!

Ciao Bella!

I bet the red and greens are gone first! Hope you have a sweet day! xx

Kris said...

I love those and they remind me of the Seinfeld episode where Elaine stopped to get candy before she met her then BF in the hospital! LOL

Stop by because I've got the scoop on a giveaway trip to Holland!

LuLu said...

I think I need to to restock my candy jar with these delightful treats....I dont believe I've had then before.... Yellow is my favorite color but I think that might be the color left behind.
Wishing you a wonderful day and yes, this is such a busy time of year!!!!!
xo,
LuLu

Heidi said...

Yummy candy, mmmmh!....Have a great weekend!

Gloria said...

What a cute and sweet picture! Love your candy jar!! Would black be a color that is missing? Yellow the color that is left? :)

They all make a pretty picture for sure!

Have a happy weekend dear friend. Will your daughter be coming home to visit? We visit one of our daughters in GA this Summer. Can't wait to see her (and her new baby, when he arrives). School is almost out here, one week left. I am looking forward to some relaxing time with the grandkids. Enjoy!! :)

xoxo...Gloria
