Pretty in Pink piggy banks
On Highway 152 in Gilroy, there are many roadside fruit stands offering cherries and strawberries for just a dollar a basket or a bag of oranges at the same price. I had passed a sign down the road advertising 6 ears of corn for a dollar and stopped by Casa de Fruta to investigate. But I was distracted by the nuts, dried fruit, candy, fruit wine, bags of garlic, and decorative pottery.
Taffys in pink (cherry) and other flavors
Ahh, there are always sweet nothings to tempt you when you're so intent to keep to your diet. Now I remember why I shouldn't stop at these places. I must recite my mantra: I came for the corn, the corn, the corn.....
So I went home empty handed. And I wish I bought a piggy bank.
