In Gatlinburg at Thanksgiving, we try to avoid the "main drag" with all the shops and people..people..and more people. We took a back road away from town and found a trail that we hiked for a couple of hours. So pretty and peaceful. On the way back we stopped at a road-side mountain mini-mart. Sometimes these tucked away places will have something I don't often (if ever)see. Bingo...success...they had the boxes of Red Band candy sticks. I get the peppermint ones at Cracker Barrel because they remind me of my grandparents and I like the way they look in an old jar. Well, this store had them in sassafras, clove, and birch flavors and the stripes on them are all different but all red and white or red, green and white. I have never heard of birch flavor ...have you? I really like the way they all look in my jar.
