Care Package From Across The Pond

6 Dec

I have awesome relatives over in England whom I adore, and not just because they send me junk food, though that does help! lol ๐Ÿ˜‰

My cousin sent me a care package that I received the other day. I wasn’t going to open it at first because I was thinking it was probably meant for Christmas but since I go to Alberta for Christmas I would of had to open it so I could pack the contents in my suitcase anyways so why not open it now?

She doesn’t use nearly as much packing tape as I do, which meant the opening process went super fast lol Here is what she sent me…

Junk food from the UK, score!

Junk food from the UK, score!

There are:

– two packages of Weight Watchers hot chocolate, flavoured like Jaffa Cakes

– two packages of Cheese & Onion flavoured crisps (those are potato chips)

– a Quality Street The Green Bar chocolate bar (hazlenut praline covered in milk chocolate)

– lots of Fox’s Party Rings (a type of cookie, a seriously delish cookie!)

– two packages of Weight Watcher’s cakes, one chocolate and one jam

– and a massive box of Jaffa Cakes (an even better cookie than the Party Rings, quite possibly the best cookie ever created!)

So yeah, talk about a box filled with magical wonders! ๐Ÿ˜€

I have already started in on the Party Rings, Mmm! I gave a sleeve of the Jaffa Cake cookies to a friend at work, she is from England but doesn’t have family there anymore so she doesn’t get lovely treats like I do. I am saving a sleeve of them for my trip home for Christmas, along with the chocolate bar, some of the Party Rings and both of the Weight Watcher’s cake packages. I’m not the only one on this side of the pond that likes these treats so I am opting to share them. Makes me sound so nice doesn’t it? It’s partly out of being nice and partly wanting to spare myself some calories *sheepish grin* lol

I sent the cousin that sent me these treats a care package also, it should be getting there soon-ish, hopefully it makes her as happy as her package to me made me! ๐Ÿ™‚
