Dear Friends of Flesor's Candy Kitchen,
Spring has sprung in Central Illinois, but here in Douglas County, we did not expect 3-inch hail balls to fall from the sky. Many of us experienced broken car windows and dents; ruined siding and roof damage, but at least we're all safe. Crazy weather here in May, and we can only guess what summer will bring.
Congratulations to all of you graduates and don't forget about Dad on June 15th. Unlike Mother's Day, Father's Day is not usually a big “candy holiday” for us, but we see no reason why it shouldn't be. So this year, we've gotten in some charming “Dad” candy boxes that you will love. Mailing is tricky during warm months, so consider prevailing temperatures before you order on-line. Your best bet is to visit our store in downtown Tuscola, Illinois. Bring your dad in for an old-fashioned ice-cream soda or for a meal. Visit other cool shops downtown and stop off at our Tanger Outlet Mall. You could even make a weekend visit to our area: book a hotel room, visit antique shops, play some golf, pick some strawberries, and tour Amish Country, too. Central Illinois has so much to offer and visiting us is AFFORDABLE.
The town pool is open and the ice-cream is cold. We're offering new flavors now and then, too. Today we have coconut and peanut butter, for example. So come in to see what's shaking....literally. And make suggestions for new flavors. It's not like we have to send a memo to “corporate” or assemble a focus group. We make a batch and if it sells, we do it again. Crazy!
Happy Summer from your confectioners,
Devon and Ann
The Flesor Sisters
