Cheesy  Lovely packages!  I like the idea of you having a US Food section in your pantry.  That's a riot!


I bet you'll like the Jolly Ranchers and Airheads- growing up they were both favorites of my friends and I!  I sort of admit resenting Kool Aid since they discontinued my favorite flavor some years ago.  Angry
Kool Aid is fun, be careful if you mix it with less water than it recommends.  There is a lot of food coloring in it.  It won't hurt you, but it might scare you on the ah, other end of things.  We did stupid stuff in college, like make super concentrated Kool Aid and use a bunch of the powder to color and flavor icing for a cake.  The Cake of Green Endings was a learning experience for everyone!   Grin

You must be the envy of all of your friends with the American candies!  My guy loves the snack box of delicious, and it's fun to have different snacks at work.  Smiley

Everyone here put together such thoughtful and nice boxes!

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

OMGoodness you found moonpies. I have been searching for those bitches everywhere. I hate living in Tn because everyone talks about being Southern, but you can't find anything southern..

You don't have moonpies in TN? That is bizarre. They're in most other southern states I've been to.

They're popular here at the University of Montevallo because for our homecoming event we split into two teams (Purple and Gold) and make two plays within an eight week time span that will be judged against one another. One of the Purple side traditions was to throw moonpies at Golds, but that got canceled a few decades ago after a girl got knocked unconscious from a frozen moonpie. Now Purple side alumni throw moonpies from the balcony each year onto the current Purple students to celebrate that tradition.

This mango candy was the BEST candy I've ever had.

I got a message a while ago that aisy received my package, but I'm going to post a few pictures of what I sent to her. I didn't get any pics of the food (I got really excited packaging it all up Tongue) but I do have photos of the craft.

I sewed a pair of cropped PJ pants. I used this really cute texting themed flannel, since aisy had a lot of cute patterns on her Pinterest.




I also made a couple small felt cat toys with catnip for her kitty.

For the food, I sent

Locally made honey, seasoning mix, chai tea, and European chocolates
Homemade cocolate covered potato chips
Milka chocolate bar
Yanyans
Nutella to go
Vanilla extract
Caramel & peanut corn on the cob
Almond & cherry dark chocolate bar
Chocolate Aero bar
Organic Peanut Butter crispy rice bar
Toffee crisp bar
Probably a few other things I can't remember
