Treats on wooden sticks

Sugar squirrels and cats, shop in Etar

The way Cracker Jacks might make me nostalgic, these sugar squirrels in an Etara shop window took R right back.

Which, in turn, made me sort of misty for a past I couldn't possibly have had, not having been raised behind the curtain that separated R's childhood from my own.

That his boy-years had featured treats like these - more mid-19th century than late 20th.

Cracker Jacks pale. (Madeleines come to mind.)
