January - a month for colour

Here in Northern Europe, January tends to be a long, grey month, so I thought I might try to counteract that by posting a "colour" picture every day (or as many days as possible).

More sweets ... these are a Belgian speciality known as "cuberdons" - they are hard on the outside and have soft centres ... and are very, very sweet. They come in range of fruit flavours.  

p.s. If you have good eyesight or can zoom in, you might get a chuckle out of the translation of "Fruits des bois" (fruits of the forest) as Fruit woods. If that sort of thing makes you smile and you haven't already read Lost in Translation: Misadventures of English Abroad by Charlie Croker, you might like to take a look at it.
