When I was a child our family would take a yearly beach trip, and each year we would go down to the boardwalk along the ocean and check out the shops. One of our most have stops was the fudge shop. I would always pick peanut butter fudge. But, my cousin would always go for the strawberry. He loves something fruit flavored and the strawberry fudge would always call his name. It’s one of my favorite childhood memories. He and I were inseparable but as adults have grown distant. I enjoy looking back and remembering the fun times of our youth.
