Thinking of Dutch licorice made me want to share this alpha freebie …

Hi all! It’s Sunday afternoon, the skies are blue but there’s a fierce wind outside and going outside is not appealing. I was “link-hopping” on the internet and came across a site with Dutch candy. More specifically, candy of the licorice variety, or “drop”, as we know it. The Dutch like their licorice, especially the salty kind. It’s an acquired taste I guess, but it’s one of the things that I long for from time to time, even though we have been living in Switzerland for a long time now. Apparently the Dutch are the number 1 consumers of salty licorice in the world and I’m sure that’s true. I’ve stopped ordering it online because every time the postman brought the goodies in, I couldn’t help myself but scoffing it all down in just about one go.

Looking at the picture of these black & white candies, I remembered I had some cute black & white alpha buttons on my hard disk and thought it would be nice to upload them. After all, it was Digital Scrapbooking Day yesterday. Enjoy!

  1. Thank you, Wilma. We lived in the Netherlands for four years and very quickly acquired a love for salty licorice and Wilhelmina Mints. 🙂 The alpha is great! Thank you for sharing!

    • Thank you for your comment Carol! It’s nice to hear that it’s not just the Dutch who have “weird” tastes 🙂
