Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

To top it off the caramel is paired with one of America's favorite snack foods. Yep! You guessed it (not that the image gave anything away)...it's popcorn of which American's consume 17 billion quarts annually.
