I got my package from rhicooqui
today!!! What a damn good Saturday this is turning out to be
Behold the Welsh/Cockney goodness!!!!!!!
A detailed list with comments:
- super cute little blue (felt?) purse
- Umberto Giannini shampoo/conditioner minis (perfect timing- rhicooqui
, I'm running out of both)
- dirty Cockney rhyming slang dictionary (HILARIOUS)
- book of "Auld Scotish Grannies' Remedies"
- a glorious bottle of Guinness Original (I LOOOVE Guinness; I don't know whether I should worship the bottle or drain it)
- a cup full of Pic'n'Mix candy from Woolworth's (we have similar things here but no marshmellow bananas which are my new favs) containing gummi cokes and fried eggs, some sort of frosting-ish sprinkle discs, some slightly strange looking pink marshmellow shrimps(?). Also a mini Yorkie (those crack me up) and some mini Cadbury's Creme Eggs (which I adore and cannot wait to taste the UK version)
- some Welsh Cakes which rhicooqui
explained are traditional
- a Welsh love spoon which is so beautiful and thoughtful
- some Sweetshop Favourites which I think are hard candies in pineapple, pear, rubarb&custard and cola flavors
- a huge Cadbury's Dairy Milk which we have in the US but I've been told is garbage compared to the UK version
- 2 CurlyWurlys which are carmel covered in chocolate mmmmm. . . .
- a bag of Cadbury Mini Eggs which I am now eating and ADORING. I didn't get a single one for Easter this year so I'm pretty stoked on these which are so much better than the ones they sell here that I could really cry
- Twinnings English Breakfast tea which had me excited and whipping out my tea pot until I realized that it's *loose* tea and I am a stupid American without a tea ball or strainer. .
- Bassett's Liquorice Allsorts (I adore liqorice!!!)
- Bassett's Jelly Babies (which I have to admit are kinda freaking me out)
- Bassett's Fruit Allsorts
- 2 Mars Bars (one of which I have already shared with a British friend)
- 2 Mars Bars Eggs (which the British friend tried to steal)
thank you sooooooo much rhicooqui
!!! everything is so great. I can't wait 'til you get your package
