Do you Remember this Candy?

I was in the chocolate aisle, browsing with closed eyes when a strong nostalgic coconut smell hit my nostrils…

That sugary coconut smell… hmmmm… i had to open my eyes! and there i was, infront of a closed tin of the lovely Kakaw Bu Jooz El Hend as we used to call it 😀 Oh how i miss it… it IS THE BEST… so chewy, the coconut so sweet and rich, and the colors are amazing… i would happily devour one tin by my own to makeup for the past decade when i didn’t dare taste it…

But then i closed my eyes and moved on… i was closing my eyes so i wouldn’t be tempted to buy any chocolate by the way o i had to pass by the chocolate aisle…

Do you remember this *kakaw*?
