One of my favorite treats is a handful -- okay, shut up, three handfuls, are you happy now? -- of Skittles and some really cold ice water. The Skittles can be the original flavor or either of the other new kind or, snaaaaap!!! A combination of all three. But the water? It has to come out of my kitchen tap. It cannot be filtered water or bottled water, both of which taste like a mouthful of salt to me. We're very lucky to live in a city that has delicious drinking water.
I'm also kind of picky about my ice, preferring the clear kind that comes in the plastic bags to the kind produced by our freezer. The bagged ice is so pretty and pure looking. And would probably taste like a mouthful of salt to me if it was melted down in a cup. I never claimed to be either reasonable or consistent.
What's your favorite treat?
