They are one of my favorite treats... we mostly got them when we visited my aunt, who lived in Cashmere at the time, or around Christmas time.
On Friday night I got talking with another lady from our ward whose name is Ellie Shane. Come to find out, Ellie lived in Aloha, OR. her senior year in high school before they moved here to Idaho; She is quite familiar with different parts of Washington though. We spent some time talking about the Twilight movie (which takes place in NW Washington) and how beautiful those parts of Washington are, this is what lead to central Washington's beauty with the fruit tree orchards.... which lead to us talking about Aplets and Cotlets.
Another lady sitting with us, Linda, who wasn't familiar with these candy's asked what they were and I explained that they were one of my favorite treats. You can find them year round in Washington at your average WINCO or WALMART or ALBERTSONS or wherever, but here in Idaho they are mostly carried close to Christmas.
Well, Saturday morning.... when I was still bright eyed and bushy tailed.... at 2:00PM in the afternoon.... Ellie dropped by with a gift. My favorite, Aplets! It was so nice of her. They were delicious!
If you haven't tried them, you should, just to say you have-- and if you hate them, that's fine with me because then I will have more for myself. :)
This brightened my day. Thank you Ellie Shane for those yummy Aplets!
