Food Surrender 8 and 9

You read correctly, I received two today. The first one the mailman handed me was Annake’s – look at these, straight out from my memory box!!


It’s been ages since I’ve had candy buttons. Remember how we used to also always get a little piece of paper with them? Or was that just me, but I doubt that very much? Can you believe that I’ve never really had Mentos before? I didn’t know they made Chewy Sweet Tarts, I just love those. I presently have a roll (ok, half roll) on my desk, but the traditional ones. I must say when I saw that bag of Pixy Stix my heart skipped a beat. Honestly, it’s been ages since I’ve had one of those!

The other parcel was from Australia, from Cinnamon Girl. This one was truly all surprises; I don’t know ANY of the goodies she sent. I’m loving it!



Between the tea and the spices (which I’ve never heard of before, like Kut jera Powder), and delicious melt on your mouth mint candies, and yummy dark chocolate, she also sent a “Snack Bar” for Mousse (Hubby’s cousin who comments on occasion). Looking at it, I know it’s not the same “Snack Bar” we used to have here, but hers looks interesting… Who would have thought of creating one chocolate bar with six different flavours? The Australians, of course!! I’ve already eaten two Red Skins; those things are yummy! I must confess that I had to ask Cinnamon what the Wizz Fizz were, since it doesn’t say anywhere how if should be eaten… Maybe it’s something to had to water… I want to be sure! If I were still a kid I would not care at all and would just rip it open.

Thank you both, ladies, for your generosity and willingness to partake in this trade. I hope you’re enjoying it as much as I am!

I have this growing sensation that I might ("might" being the key word here!) have to share some of these candies, but for now, they are mine!!! All mine! Mwahahaha…

ha..ha.ha. I just want to know if you've "upped" your exercise regime because of all these treats. :)

Marius said...

I'm curious, since several of us have sent you Combos, have you tried them yet?

I didn't know Mousse was your hubby's cousin! She's commented on my blog a time or two.

Enjoy all your goodies!

Annake said...

I seriously almost kept the Pixy Stix. Yummmm. ;-)

lizgwiz said...

Oh, now I want some Pixy Stix! I LOVED those!

Mousse said...

OMG - If I'd received those packages I would so be in a candy-coma !!! Above and beyond Snack Bar being my all time favorite chocolate bar - SWEET TARTS AND PIXY STIX - YUMMY !!!! Why-oh-why do they no longer make such fabulous junk anymore ?

Stinkypaw said...

pppink: I'm not eating these all at once, I'm saving them...

marius: Remember my post of Aug.10th? I did and really enjoy them, but I haven't tasted the pizza one yet.

3C: She's one of 5 cousins Hubby has here. Thanks!

annake: I haven't even opened the bag yet, resisting... don't want to start...;-)

lizgwiz: Go for it, there's plenty!

mousse: They still make some, they're just harder to find, but I have rolls of Sweet Tarts regularly. Vrac Stores have a lot of those goodies. We'll have to see each other for that Snack Bar of yours! :-)

Mousse said...

Cool - When I collect my Snack Bar (Thanks Cinnamon Girl !!!) you'll have to provide me with a list of Vrac stores where I can find Sweet Tarts & Pixy Stix. Just hope they have the same impact of satisfaction they did when I was younger. Remember how good Popeye candy cigarettes were when we were kids ? Then they went and changed the recipe (added a few more chemicals and/or artificial flavors) that completely changed the taste and destroyed my passion for them. There just yucky now, sob...

Marius said...

Ah yes, of course. Pray forgive. I had gotten so caught up in the thought that you hated the Twinkies that I forgot all about you liking the combos. :-)

noble pig said...

You lucky, lucky lucky! I want.

Stinkypaw said...

mousse: The vrac store in Pte-Claire (called Papillon), by the 20 and St-John's has them. That's where I get my goodies.

marius: Not a problem my dear, I liked both, Twinkies and Combos!

noble pig: You already had Kona Coffee Ice Cream!

Purple Pigeon said...

Oh my god! Nerds!! They used to sell them over here, but now they don't and it makes me sad.... With their duel flavourings and their little armless bodies!

Stinkypaw said...

pigeon: I'll send you some for Xmas! ;-)

Purple Pigeon said...

YAY!!!! You are a legend!

cinnamon girl said...

Hey, I know I commented on this! I must have stuffed it up. I've been doing that a lot lately.
Still haven't recieved yours. Good old Australia Post. :(

cinnamon: Mix your postal services with ours, and it gives us LONG deliveries!!!
