The Miettegirl & the Sea

Here at the Confiserie, we entertain ourselves by setting up little vignettes, dreaming up complicated surroundings & circumstances for our candy. Candy nerds we are, one & all.

Our favorite spot in the shop right now is nicknamed The Captain's Table. We imagine a taciturn, bearded Captain who's off at sea, but we're keeping his table just the way he left it for the day he returns.* It holds his salt water taffy, chocolate sardines, and gold bullion (has he a bit of pirating in his past, or does he just enjoy milk chocolate Gianduja?). Weather-worn maps, a sextant (whatever that is), an hour-glass, everything a captain could need. Still, it seems like something's missing....

Ah, of course: a licorice pipe. Much better.

*Does that make us Brand-ay?
