do you eat the caramel ones first too?

i remember
when i was young
it was always
the mixed
pot of gold
chocolates
that would
traditionally
be given
as hostess
gifts

every
christmas
one of these
assorted boxes
would make
their way
to my parents
armoire

nevertheless
the minute
it was opened
anything that had
caramel inside
or on top
of -- was completely
consumed
within not even
5 minutes

there's something
extremely comforting
about a nice piece
of caramel chocolate
especially with
a light sprinkling

of salt
