Think Outside of the Box-Shop by Flavor

Written by Laura Stamper

My grandson asked me, “What flavor are you?” That got me thinking. If I were a flavor, what flavor would I be? And since it was my grandson’s idea and mothers day is almost here …. I thought what a fun shopping guide for mother’s day this year; or maybe to get something fun and special for yourself.

Vanilla: Vanilla is the quintessential timeless and classic flavor. It is actually made from a type of orchid, and after saffron, is the most expensive because growing the pods is very labor intensive.

When I think of vanilla, I think of classic, rich, timeless, cultured and luxury. Like this Triple Strand Pearl Bracelet.




Chocolate: Chocolate is perhaps the most popular flavor in the world.

It is rich, seductive, smooth and versatile, like this chocolate brown Wood Bead Pendant. It is a comfort food as well as a show of love.





Caramel: Caramel is created by heating sugars. It is sweet and soft.

When I think of caramel, I think of warmth and comfort - the same feelings I get from this pretty Brown Cream Swirl Carved Bone Necklace.







Strawberry: Strawberry is appreciated for its characteristic aroma sweet flavor, and pretty appearance.

A strawberry would emanate playfulness, and a fresh natural wonder - like this Strawberry Charm Necklace.




Pepper: Now we are talking about real spice; hot and sassy! There are many flavors in the pepper family and many stages of warm.

This is a flavor that says “attitude”. Nothing timid here! This hot Salmon Coral Chili Necklace says it all ...





Citrus: Citrus is fresh and tart. It has a sunny feel to it and seems to show up at parties.

Whether orange, lime or lemon, these tropical flavors are associated with a youthful demeanor. Like this fantastic Citrus Lampwork and Sterling Silver Wire Wrapped Bracelet!
