Your’re probably wondering on the title of my IMM. All will be revealed shortly, just keep reading
I got a lovely box filled with Swedish goodies from Bex @ Kindle Fever! She even sent me a lovely note written in Swedish (and was gracious enough to send an English translation – to save me from Googling every other word LOL) I unfortunately forgot to take a pic of the letter – but I took pics of all the goodies – and the awesome neon green box everything came in (never had a neon green box show up before!!)
The package was a bit damaged on the top – it looked like someone punched it really LOL but thankfully everything inside was safe and sound.
This is a little snapshot of right after I opened a hole wider in the top – I was too lazy to do it the “proper” way..I figured since there was already the start of an opening You can see the lovely light purple envelope the notes came in.. and that on top (Djungelvral) is Salt Licorice.. what Bex and I have termed “Swedish Torture Candy” (I made my mom try the salt licorice 4 times because I didn’t get it on camera each time… and I wanted Bex to see someone’s reaction eating it for the first time.. good thing my mom is a good sport – and I let her have one of my Swedish chocolates
This is the entire contents of the box! I’m eating the Plopp as I’m making this post – it’s basically small bars of milk chocolate filled with gooey toffee (nomnomnom), The bilar (those colorful candies behind the salt licorice) are interesting too! They are a mix between our peeps and those opaque type gummies we have here. The Aladdin chocolate is a mxed bag – well it IS mixed chocolates LOL I like most of them but the other day I tried a “likor” (liquor) one (before I looked to see what it was) and almost spit it out.. I definitely didn’t eat the rest – it tasted EXACTLY like our over the counter cherry cough syrup – except a bit more alchoholy.. 0_0 LOL My dad loves them though.. so I let him eat all the rum ones too.. hahaha
And an extra little treat.. this is my mom getting one of her first tastes of salt licorice (it was actually the 4th time.. I couldn’t get the video to save.. so I asked her to try it again.. 4 times.. she almost stopped believing me that I couldn’t get the video LOL I told her she was going to be famous now on my blog
Thanks so much Bex for sending it along, I hope to sometime soon send you a Taste of America box!
