Vacances de Printemps, 1945
It's been long, too long, since our last Mad Men feature. But now chocolate is the air,
Spring's mildness is inesorably exploding, and I am in the mood for some delightful,
pastel sugar coated candies from monsieur Donald Brun. The flavor of his bouncy,
happy, reassuring critters strongly reminds me of my childhood in 1960-70s Italy:
vacations on the Alps, candy sticks, stuffed toys, old fashioned pastry shops,
and large chocolate Easter surprise eggs...
