There are some kid's school fete foods that I don't like at all. Chocolate crackles due to the Copha for one and toffees in patty pans with hundreds and thousands over them send me into sugar shock. Fairy bread I'll try more for the kaleidescope of colours atop but Honey Joys are a definitely favourite. I literally had not tried one for decades until I was reminded how easy it is to make them. And how every mum used to make these, chocolate crackles and toffees in patty pans for the school fete.
If the local schools are any indication, I fear these new generation mums simply won't do a normal honey joy anymore for the school fete. Instead it's cupcakes in all manner of form, even bought from a shop extracted in perfect trays from the back of a 4WD. Not that I have anything against that, I happen to love cupcakes. And I know that if I became a mum I'd be the kind that channels Bree Van Der Kamp rather than Lynette Scavo (except when Lynette was on ADD meds). So I am mocking my future self. Just don't mock the Honey Joy.
