OMG ……. there is confectionary abound everywhere in Last Vegas ….. and we have been doing our level best to try just a few morsels each day … but it is a losing battle and we may have to up our consumption quite considerably before we leave in order to say we have sampled it all!Nigel’s confectionary establishment of choice is the Sugar Factory at The Paris Hotel, and where he can be found, when we can’t find him!
However, we have had to keep a very tight rein on his retail activities because the aforementioned Sugar Factory isn’t the cheapest place in the world.
Darrell usually goes to check up on him before he gets to the weigh in, but as a ball park figure we have told him to keep to just 10 to 12 sweeties per visit to avoid the embarrassment of not having enough dollars for his much considered purchase, as happened on his first visit!The choice is mahooooosively mahooooosive, we have never seen so many jelly beans and gummi things ever!
And it has been the names of some of the confectionary delicacies that have had Nigel and Darrell in fits of boyish laughter …… asking each other if they would like a ………….. fairy fart …… or two …….…….. or a blow pop!!!
For me, the joke wore thin after about the tenth time of being offered a fairy fart/blow pop amidst great splutters and guffaws, sniggers and giggles, not that they would have noticed!There is also an M & M’s World in Vegas ….. but Darrell being a bit of an aficionado was unimpressed, saying he thought the one in London was much better ….. and …… although all the M & Ms look very pretty in their many hundreds of colours …… they still do not stock our M & M’s of choice ….. the peanut butter variety!!! So, no considered purchase completed here then!!
