Does anyone else wonder what to buy dad? Me, too. It doesn’t hurt to ask though. Here’s the answer I got to “what would you like for Father’s Day from The Country Cupboard?”: dark chocolate almonds, milk chocolate cashews, and raspberry syrup. You can ask your father or we can offer a few suggestions. Nuts, cappuccino, 12 flavor gummi bears and milk chocolate buckeyes are great choices, along with salsa, pickled baby beets and snack mixes, such as s’more mix or cappuccino mix. Better yet, bring dad out for lunch and let him pick. We have Melt the Heart Father’s Day greeting cards – a great way to tell dad you appreciate him.
