I fulfilled another Christmas tradition this week. Every year at Christmastime, I go to Macy’s and buy a box of Frango mints.
This is a nod to my growing up in suburban Chicago. Frango mints were a Marshall Field’s specialty, and when Macy’s purchased that company, they became the only place to buy them. No matter how much the children beg, though, I only buy them at Christmas. Having to wait all year to eat them makes them even more special!
