Wiley Wallaby Organic Bites
I am a licorice lover. It is hands down my favorite candy so I was super excited to try Wiley Wallaby Organic Gourmet Licorice. Not only is it organic but it is Non-GMO Verified. There are two flavors, Strawberry, made with real fruit juice and black licorice, made with real molasses. These bites are made with sustainable palm oil, organic cane sugar and real fruit juice and molasses and free of high fructose corn syrup. Each bite of licorice is soft and delicious. I would definitely keep these on hand as a favorite candy.

My boyfriend and I have been working hard in my gardens to get them ready for spring and summer. Over the weekend he and I put out 72 bags of mulch, made a second raised bed and planted some flowers. I am excited for all of the colors to begin popping in my gardens and for a vegetable garden for the first time in three summers. I have missed having raised beds. It is going to be so. much fun cultivating our vegetables this summer in our garden. We are getting ready to plant our vegetable garden this weekend.
