White Chocolate Dipped Red Vines: Perfection!
I grew up in Northern California, went to college in the East, and have lived on the East Coast ever since. One of the things I will never get used to is the pervasiveness of Twizzlers over Red Vines over here on the Right Coast. I used to stock up on bins of Red Vines every time I went home to visit family. Luckily, distribution of The Perfect Candy seems better these days and I can find Red Vines if I do some poking around- it takes some persistence, though. Is this all about distribution deals or do East Coasters really prefer the waxy flavorless Twizzlers? Anyway, I was recently visiting my family in Humboldt and stumbled across a brilliant use of Red Vine deliciousness- Red Vines dipped in melty white chocolate. Amazing! I don't even like white chocolate that much but the flavors were divine and the consistency outstanding and I find myself dreaming of them often. Old Town Coffee and Chocolate, downtown Eureka- if you happen through, pick some up. Hooray for licorice treat ingenuity!
