Christmas Treats

Postby Fatman » Wed Nov 10, 2004 5:49 pm

Well I thought I'd seen it all being an anorak/enthusiast on sausages, but today I was visited by a young French lady called Claire-Lise who lives in Brittany, France.

She knows I'm nuts about sausages and meat etc and she as often brought me gifts with a sausage theme, this time she arrived with many different dried sausages and to go one further she handed me a large bag of "sausage sweets". The bag contained mini sausages wrapped in sweet papers printed with messages on sausages and including the chartcutiers details. This I have never seen before and I never got round to asking Claire-Lise why it is done , so if any of you guys have heard or seen this, then please say!

I can only assume it is a Christmas treat from the butcher to his clients and their children.

Regards

Being a cynic , I'll have to go along with advertising. Though I may not be right. In Holland if it was your birthday, they would give you a chocolate letter) your initial, under your pillow. They kept your passport so they knew your information.
