43. Candy with glow-in-the-dark wrappers.

Wait! They MAKE those??? How did I miss this? You could find them at night on your bedside table and everything! Cor. Blow me down.

45. Kinder eggs.

Hmm. Mine have never been particularly truculent or nasty to me that I can recall, but I'm all in favor of more kindness in general, eggses included.

Kinder eggs
LOL - it just didn't occur to me that someone mught read it that way!
Kinder eggs are hollow chocolate eggs with a surprise toy inside - they've been around for decades.
Ah, I've just Googled to give you a link and I;ve discovered something awful - Kinder eggs are illegal in the US!

As for the candy with the glow-in-the-dark wrappers, an American friend sent me some.

It might be addictive and then I'll be in trouble, though! :)

I'm going to write a list of 50 things that delight. :D I've not read yours through because I didn't want to be influenced. I shall read it after mine is done and then I can safely comment on yours. :D
