Gifties from Across The Pond!

Isn't that a pretty picture?  The other day I was surprised to find a package on my doorstep - my bestie Kate had put together a care package for me of some of my favorite things that I can't get in the USA!  We may have the right to bear arms, but we don't have Jaffa Cakes!  D:

Not pictured - Branston Pickle, which seems to be pretty close to pickle relish but it completely pureed and NOT green.  It's actually pretty tasty on a cheese sandwich!

I also love my Union Jack socks (on the right edge of the photo), and this disclaimer on the back of them.  I suppose it saved me the email I would have sent her, asking "so, I can put these in a fire, right?  With NO ill effects?"

Which reminds me, I need to send her Peeps, with the instruction that she absolutely MUST put them in the microwave!


  1. brb, going to rob your house.

  2. The scariness of your artifical food in the states never fails to amaze me.

  3. I do find it odd that your junk food has expiration dates.

    Which reminds me, do you have Twinkies over there??!

  4. Oooooh, Jaffa Cakes. . . yum yum yum (covet, covet!)
