Eat with your Eyes: Advanced Turtle Stacking

Advanced Turtle Stacking

“If I could sit high, how much greater I’d be!
What a king! I’d be ruler of all I could see!”
So Yertle, the Turtle King, lifted his hand
And Yertle, the Turtle King, gave a command.
He ordered nine turtles to swim to his stone
And, using these turtles, he built a new throne.

from Yertle the Turtle by Dr. Seuss (link)

  4. Couldn’t agree more Michelle! On the other subject ..... I am NOT a fan of the original candy turtles. DeMet’s? Ohhh, awful, terrible. The aftertaste is scary/stale. Never again for that brand. First, think of the best chocolates+caramel+fresh pecans!! It has to be REAL .... not fake. Put your bucks on Fannie May. Also, See’s kitchens sells marvelous/likewise candies. Both brands equal awesome (FRESH!) flavors. People .... you’ll pay more for them, but definitely enjoy the excellent quality.
