*Werther’s Original Sugar Free is on a mission to spread sweetness in 2017 and we are pleased to partner with them in celebrating life’s little moments.
My grandpa Forbush had an unapologetic sweet tooth. He was known to hide colorfully wrapped goodies in grandma’s porcelain flour jar, between the couch cushions, and even under his pillow. He taught me a lot about embracing little moments of sweetness.
Whenever one of his grandkids seemed to be in a sour mood, he’d reach into his pocket and pull out his all-time favorite candy–Werther’s Original. The iconic gold wrapper and creamy, buttery sweetness of that little treat immediately brightened up any frown. One of the most important lessons grandpa taught me was that the best things in life are free.
The Sweetest Things in Life…
No fancy vacation could ever rival a backyard campout with all the cousins playing night games and a circle of dutch ovens cooking up fried chicken and potatoes. Who needs to go to the movies when you can go sledding with your best friends? Growing up, we didn’t have the fanciest things, but we had a treasure of memories that didn’t cost a thing.
The best, no the SWEETEST things in life are always free. A hug, a love note, a picture of a giraffe in roller skates created just for you by a very talented three-year-old. If you’re looking for sweetness, Werther’s Original Sugar Free provides the same smooth, rich, and creamy taste of Werther’s Original, guilt-free.
Now as an adult, I try to keep my grandpa’s mission to spread sweetness alive. He passed his smile, his optimism, and his sweet tooth down to me. I’ve been known to have a few good hiding places for my treats as well (like hiding them in an empty box of bran flakes…no one has ever checked there).
Werther’s Original Sugar Free candies are perfect for on-the-go, especially when one of my kiddos could use a little “sweetening up.” I keep them in my purse for doctor’s visits, grocery shopping, and when we’re stuck running errands in the car. With six delicious flavors, including Classic Caramel, Caramel Coffee, Caramel Apple, Caramel Chocolate, Chewy Caramel, and Chewy Chocolate Caramel, there’s a Werther’s Original Sugar Free flavor for everyone!
Sweet moments are everywhere, when you look for them. They are cuddling up to a good book, an afternoon with your best friend; they are moments that you just can’t buy. Werther’s Original Sugar Free fans can take part in the Real Moments of Sweetness challenge and win some sweetness of their own.
