Sprinkle No. 48

*Sprinkle No. 48* is an assignment to marvel at something small and seemingly ordinary.


I received a little  package of Japanese candy in the mail for Christmas (thank you Lily @JetPens) Before you think, “Yah, so …” take a close look at these candies. There are pictures in the middle of them! How on earth are hard candies created that have faces and symbols in the middle? I’m assuming they are somehow built in long rope-like pieces and eventually cut up in smaller chunks to reveal the picture that has been made by the layering of various colors??

I just think these are marvelous.
Once I really stopped to take notice, I truly marveled at how unique they really are.
My children wanted to eat them.
Every day for several days they asked if they could.
I kept putting them off because I needed to take a picture.

Later, I asked Taft if the candy tasted as remarkable as it looked.
He said, “No.”  It just tastes like candy.

And there you go, lots of little things that can be easily overlooked and under-appreciated. Take notice and *sprinkle* your life with a “little marvel” today.



  1. This reminds me that most of things in life are little things but its little things that make big stuff in our lives.

  2. How true! Thanks for the reminder!

  3. stacy – what a great little reminder to us all.
    the candy is fantastic they make a similar rock candy in aussie/ nz and have different pictures in it and for our wedding 6years ago we had our names written in side the candy as our wedding favours, TOO CUTE! and you are sooo right – they stretch out the candy and layer it -it’s amazing to watch , cheers julie

  4. Reminded me of WAY back in the beginning Me & MY Bid Ideas used to send candies in their orders that had a their name and an image. They were super cute and great tasting. Fun to look back and remember. Thanks

  5. I saw a show on how candy like that is made, just as you described. It’s pretty amazing!
