Yummy International

As part of Ashley’s idea Yummy International, I exchanged sweet treats with Chrissy from the USA. Ashley wisely paired me with this sweet girl who’d traveled from Germany to the USA, so you can figure I was happy to be able to talk to someone who’d already gone through what I’m about to embark on! This was not only a great way to get to know American treats, but most importantly, to meet such an adorable person as Chrissy, so that’s what I’m mostly thankful for. Thank you, Ashley! I don’t remember saying it to you, actually! What an idiot I am!

This is the box. You can’t imagine how excited I was when the postman knocked on my door and I saw such a big package on his hands!  
And I was even happier when I opened it. Look at all the things she sent! It's crazy!
She even sent one of her lovely felt pins! And decorated the box with leaves :).
I could finally try the coconut M&Ms. I don't like coconut, but I love coconut M&M, huh!
These were my very favorite from the bunch.
I also liked the pretzel M&Ms a lot.
But I guess that my absolute favorite sweet were Reese's peanut buttercups, yum!
I still have some candy inside my PEZ. That dispeser is aweome; it glows in the dark :P.
Oh, and I was surprised to see the Fruit by the Foot format, look:
It was scary to see the leftover paper after eating the candy. I was like "what the hell?! Did I eat that much candy in such a brief period of time???" ... Well, duh, yes! Haha. But, man, did I enjoy it!? :) It tasted really good.

We do have Skittles and Nerds here in Argentina. I've never been big on them, but my sister is, so she was super happy to accept them. She says "thanks, Chrissy", by the way :).

Ah, I've also like the Milk Duds, but found them too sweet to eat many at a time. I'm surprised to see that you eat caramel (that's an Argentine creation, but we call it "dulce de leche", because it's made by boiling milk and sugar for a long time).

Oh, wait! Wait! There's somehing else!
I finally tried Kool Aid! :P I had to add big amounts of sweetener to each glass, but it tasted good. I think my two favorite flavors were grape and watermelon.

Thank you so much, Chrissy for having sent so many things! You really shouldn't have.
I hope you get my package soon! Let me know when you do, please :).

Oh cute package! Thanks so much for your comment, I am loving your blog! Have you tried getting some sort of casual work over the christmas period? Over here most retail stores hire people just for the couple of months- might be perfect for your situation!
