I speak as one who has cared little for candy of any kind and less for
I don't like chocolate cake, nor chocolate blanc mange, nor chocolate
pudding, nor chocolate to drink--unless it is cocoa, very hot, not too
sweet, and strained carefully.
Nevertheless I fell in with friends, who feasted upon Lowney's; they
beguiled me into feasting upon Lowney's, and since then my attitude has
changed as to candy.
I had a box of Lowney's, a particularly well-made, attractive box, that
is still kept to put small treasures in, and brought it home for my
family to eat.
Always before, I had looked on with the unselfishness of a pelican, to
see others eat candy; but now I strove with them, like a frigate bird,
and made them give up some of it. I wanted it myself.
Furthermore, I bought a small box of Lowney's chocolate almonds in
Portland, Oregon, on the fourteenth of June, and with severe
self-denial, brought it home on the twenty-ninth of July.
Then it was eaten, largely by me, and every single one of those
chocolate almonds was fresh and good.
I can state further, on the evidence of personal friends, that all the
Lowney preparations are pure and honest and perfectly reliable.
They are as good as the best in the world.
As to the candy,--That's better.
