Simple Pleasures

Sometimes it's just the simple things in life that make it all worth while. I wanted to share with you a couple of things that give me a "warm fuzzy". When I was just a mere child we would go to the Friday night football game and without a doubt you could count on the concession stand to serve "peppermint lemons" and "hot Dr. Pepper". Have you guys ever tried either one? If not, don't let another day pass without trying them.

All you need is a bag of Olde Timey peppermint sticks, ya know the soft ones (very important, the others won't work) and a lemon. Roll your lemon to get it all juicy inside.....cut the top off the lemon, insert the stick, bite the end off the stick and suck. OH MY GOSH!!!! It is delish!!!!

Now for the hot Dr. Pepper. Slice lemon, place in mug, pour in Dr. Pepper and heat in microwave for 2 minutes. ENJOY!


What gives you a "warm fuzzy"?




I just noticed that it looks like my little chicken is trying to get a drink of Hot Dr. Pepper!!! LOL!!

I've never tried that! I love the soft peppermint, so next time I have a lemon, I'll try it. I know I would love the warm Dr. P. Thanks for the tips and the photos are just adorable.

I haven't done the lemonpeppermint thing in so long. I actually forgot about it. Thanks for reminding me.

I have to say that I have never heard of either of these things....but they sound like they are worth a try!

Hmmmmm...I've never heard of either "pleasure". I'm sure they're both yummy though.

Hugs!

ok...both of those just sound odd lol. I'd try the peppermint lemon if I ever happen upon those soft peppermint sticks...I've never seen them before. But the hot Dr. Pepper...I'm not that adventurous!

Sis, loved those memories. Boy would I like some hot Dr. Pepper right now! That sounds so good!

I have NEVER heard of either one of those. I can't imagine someone even thinking that up!! I don't know about drinking warm DP, but I might consider the lemon-peppermint thing. You crack me up!

Bo said...

Well, I guess I haven't gottn too old to learn something new...never heard of either of these treats...
& I don't think I've ever seen soft peppermint sticks come to think of it..now I'll be on the hunt! ;-) Bo

We've done that before with peppermint sticks and oranges. I think I'd like it even better with a lemon!

For those that commented that they've never found the Peppermint Sticks, we always get ours at Cracker Barrel.

I have never heard of either of these drink combos, but I sure would bet my daughter would LOVE to try either of them!
