My package from Transatlanticism practically teleported halfway around the world to land at my house last friday! Cheesy So many munchies, I'm in snack heaven. *happy dance* Anyway, on to the pics!

A picture of the shoebox when I opened it:

It's packed full of stuff.

And here are all the snacks laid out:

The chocolates melted in the heat, but a couple of hours in the ref and they're all good again. So far I've broken into the m&m pretzels bag while watching Breaking In with a friend, eaten my first s'mores pop tart (yum!), tried the gushers, Rollos, taffy, caramel, and a honey stick! Oh, and the Easy Cheese was pretty fun (had a real d'oh moment when I was trying to figure out how to get the nozzle to work, though). I can't wait to try the rest.

Here's a list of the snacks that Transatlanticism sent: m&m's pretzel, m&m's dark chocolate peanut, local handmade flavored caramels (I ate one and I'm saving the rest to eat for last), Fruit Gushers, S'mores pop tarts, assorted taffy, Rollos, Choco Nut Clusters, Chocolate covered cookie dough, Milano, Cran-Blueberry Crunch, mint sticks, Cow Tales, Jujyfruits, and Sour Patch Kids. I love the fact that I've never even encountered almost all of the snacks before. Oh, and there's an extra cookie cutter shaped like Minnesota.

The crafted stuff along with two postcards:

It's a hair clip fascinator and a necklace. They're both so cute and I can't wait to wear them out. (Sorry for the sucky pics, it's so hard to get a good pic because the metal kept reflecting light)

Thank you so much again, Transatlanticism! It was so much fun swapping with you and I hope your package gets too you soon! (tracking says it's already in San Francisco)

I'm glad you like everything-- it was fun picking out things that would be new and interesting to you! I figured the chocolate might melt, which is why I didn't send much of it, I'm just glad the taffy and caramels made it without becoming a sticky mess!!

Some yummy things there!  One of my favorite treats is Milano cookies.  Mmmmmm.  They're pricey so I only get them for special occasions, but they are some kind of tasty!  How fun that you got mostly stuff you've never seen before!

I spy something that is also on it's way to Canada.  Oh, hi Burgz!  Grin

 Shocked My package is out for delivery!!! Hopefully the postman'll come a little early as I have to leave around the same time that he usually comes. Otherwise, I'll have it tomorrow afternoon!

 Lol it all stayed in place because it was packed to within an inch of its life. I had to repack the box about 6 times before i got everything in there. The wierd goo and bacon peanuts are courtesy of my bf, who works in a gas station and has all kinds of odd things. I knew you wanted mostly baking stuff so thats why there is so much jello and whatnot.

Be sure to share with the husband.  Grin

Good thing I took a group shot of my goodies from zzdia already, because I keep munching on them! Smiley I don't have time before work, so I'll upload pictures later!

I'm surprised the cereal remained intact!  What is the pink Jelly Belly stuff?  I haven't seen those varieties of Cheez Its yet.  Mmmmmm, loves me a Cheez It!
