Enjoy favorite childhood treats in a grownup way

Do you ever wish you could just be five years old again and indulge in your favorite childhood treats? Well today is your lucky day because it is National Peanut Butter and Jelly day! Nothing makes the stress of every day life disappear faster than enjoying a few favorite things from childhood. Indulging in your favorite childhood treats every now and then is good for the soul. Here are three great ways to enjoy your childhood favorites in a slightly more grownup way.

1. Favorite Childhood Movies – One of my favorite ways to relax is by watching some of favorite movies from when I was young. If popping in your favorite animated film sounds too juvenile try an updated version of a childhood favorite. With Netflix’s release of Fuller House earlier this year we now get to see the next chapter of one of our favorite childhood families.

2. Favorite Childhood Activities – Enjoying naptime and recess daily may not be practical anymore, but you can still enjoy some of your favorite childhood activities. Adult coloring books are becoming very popular as a way to release stress. With the warmer weather and longer days now is the perfect time to strap on a helmet and go for a bike ride.

3. Favorite Childhood Foods – Want to enjoy some of your favorite childhood flavors in a more refined way? Delysia Chocolatier’s Childhood Truffle Collection is the perfect way to enjoy your childhood favorite foods. The Peanut Butter and Jelly Truffle sandwiches raspberry puree and peanut butter into the center of a milk chocolate shell. Milk chocolate, white chocolate, and strawberry puree combine to create the delicious Neapolitan Ice Cream Truffle. Everyone’s favorite campfire treat is brought to life with handcrafted marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate ganache in the S’mores Truffle. The Childhood Truffle Collection is sure to please everyone from the young to the young at heart.
