It's no secret that I love butterscotch. I love it on ice cream, I love it alone, I love it any place you want to put it... well, maybe not on a dirty road. Maybe it's in my genes. I mean, with a name like Stewart, loving butterscotch should be just a given. Actually, come to think of it, is butterscotch Scottish, or do they just advertise it as that because it has the word "scotch" in it?

As far as butterscotch candies go, these are really good. They're smooth and not too sticky, which is actually a problem with many butterscotch treats. You see, I've often eaten other brands and when they're a little sticky I'm tempted to bite into them because I think they're chewy, only to hurt my teeth. These, on the other hand, are hard candies through and through. The flavour is fine as well, smooth and creamy, just the way I like it.
