We imagined sitting in an old church with polished pews, natural wax candles wearing a freshly starched white shirt and opening up a new cedar wood trinket filled with caramel flavoured marshmallows and honey roasted mixed nuts. Rich, creamy, silky-smooth mouthfeel like runny honey or maple syrup with fragrant wood spice and the slight tart finish of a fresh stick of rhubarb. Water turned it into a mocha java coffee with plenty of whipped cream and cinnamon and chocolate shavings sprinkled on top. To accompany the coffee we had candy and peanut brittle, creamy vanilla fudge, as well as chocolate covered toffee.
