As mentioned before, I received the most OVERWHELMING 2 snack packages from scarlet_nights on Saturday.... I am still speechless about the amount of sugary goodness she sent my way and , boy, did she deliver!

Everything is so wonderfully colorful and being a real talent at using every last inch of a box, scarlet_nights poked holes into the candy bags to let the air out and it all smells amazing too! I really have no idea where to start and need to rely on the bf picking out things to try or friends coming over going all googly-eyed over my year's-supply of American candy-goodness and asking " Can we PLEASE try these?"

In order to understand what I am talking about, here's what I uncovered from these innocent looking (but very heavy) packages:





And here comes the list:

Nestle Chunky; DOTS ( tried and approved with a broad grin); Mallo-Licious Marshmellow;  Wonka Chewy Spree ( I love the little text on the back that uses words like scrumdiddlyumptious); Jiffy Oatmeal Cookie Mix ; Razzles; Pop-Rocks;  Air-heads; Fruit by the foot, Fruit gushers and Fruit Rolls (my favourite!); Jolly Rancher fruit smoothie flavour, fruit chews and chrunch&chew; Sharkies; Peach Rings ( that smell amazing and way better than the german version); Rainbow nerds rope; 2 kinds of Skittles (oh, these will be safed for a super-special day!) ; Juju Flowers; Sour dudes strawz; Runts; Chocolate chip cookie dough bites ( will safe these for watching a specific Gilmore Girls episode); Lemonhead Tropical; Tootsie Pop Drops; Jujyfruits; Starburst flavour morph; Charleston Chews: Push Pop Candy Toppers ( with the cutest figurines on top) and Life savers gummies "collisions" and "bunnies and eggs" ( these were all gone by saturday night and they were both yummy and cute!).......



But that was not even all of it! The boyfriend tried to sneak off a whole bunch, but I managed to snap a picture before he did:



There were Snickers, Mike and Ike ( Tropical Typhoon and Berry Blast), Raisinets ( I am told they were all gone within 5 minutes of opening the package);  Thingamajig; Reese's Crispy Crunch; Cadbury fruit and nut chocolate; Cadbury Creme Egg; Jelly Belly ( Smoothie Blend, Ice Cream Parlor Mix); Hawaiian Punch; Great Value Fruit Smiles ( oh, those are excellent and stick my teeth together in just the right way) ; and Turtles Original ( nice and chewy )and Lucky Charms (which he gracefully agreed to share, so I got to experience the wonderful smell that is a combination of waffles and fresh cake at the fair.... )....



Also, scarlet_nights included a lovely Illinois drinking glass as a souvenir for me and it currently holds my stash of fruit roll-ups and a cute little Jaja Bings pen that will be extremely fun to use for school....



The drinking glass was wrapped in a piece of purple velvet that has been snatched up by the bf to use for a necktie Grin



And last but not least, she crafted a really pretty hair-pin for me  (which is awesome because I was just missing a purple head adornment) and sent a cute duck-tape flower ( that will definitely become a hairpin) along:



So as you can see, there is a reason why I declared scarlet_nights the winner of this swap and saying just THANK YOU  seems like far too little a thing to say, so here it is ( with my addmittedly non-too-reliable knowledge of the english language):

ODE TO SCARLET-NIGHTS

OH THEE TAKETH MY BREATH
AND STICKETH MY TEETH TOGETHER
WONDERFULLY
BY THINE POWER OF
SUGARY MORSELS AND
UNEARTHLY COLORS GALORE
THEE LIGHTETH MY EVERY DAY

Did I really put that much in those boxes? Im glad you like everything and your post jsut cracked me up, I dont think anyone has ever wrote a poem to me. Tell your bf his new "necktie" is special fabric since that purple velvet is some of the very little fabric I salvaged after my house burned down a couple of years ago. And that he is a naughty boy for trying to sneak off a big pile of candy and not sharing.

Just got my package in today. Can't wait to try everything.  I got a really cute little bat pendent straight from my wist. Unfortunately It's really hot today and all the chocolate had to right into the fridge after I took this picture.
Thank you RaraAvis for the great package.

Yay! I'm so happy the package finally made it to you and I hope you like everything!

MissingWillow, it's at the PO already! I received the notice this morning. I'll PM you once I've actually got them and I'll try to post pics soon after. Smiley

Posted in the wrong thread. D'oh!


I received from MissingWillow! She sent a box and an envelope full of snacks (the box was especially amazing since she packed every inch with something and I couldn't put them back in after). Of course, being me, I forgot to take pics before I ripped them open. Roll Eyes


Dark chocolate and chocolate with toffee! Love them both. And the easter bunny chocolate box is too cute. A Superman PEZ dispenser (I always wanted PEZ when I was a kid but we never bought them because they're too expensive here, now I get to taste them). The container is Maxwell House latte (which probably won't last long since I love coffee. Snoopy bandaids, caramel (!!!), pop tarts (yay, it's a different flavor from the one i got in the previous snack swap), ooze pop, and haribo golden bears! The crumpled foil thing at the top center is the wrap of a Cadbury creme egg that I ate driving back from the PO. Couldn't resist.


More gummies: sluggles, lifesavers, adn soda poppers. Corn nuts, dark chocolate kisses and sour dots. I forgot to include the ring pops in the picture (I've always read about them in books and this is my first time actually trying them.)

MissingWillow actually sent me something I sent her (and another somewhat similar). It's kind of funny. You guys will see when MissingWillow receives her package.

And here are the lovely crafted items (plus an extra dino keychain):

Ok, you can't really see the crafted items because one is overturned and the other has to be up close to really appreciate it.

It's a wishes in a bottle necklace! And a bazinga pendant! I have these pinned on my pinterest and I am so amazed with them. Especially the wishes (yes, we call them wishes, even if I know they're dandelions)

Thank you so much for an awesome swap package, MissingWillow! Hope you like yours too once you receive.

A wonderful package, MissingWillow! I love the wee necklace you made. I love the thought of putting wishes in a bottle to carry them around with you Grin
