On this side of the Atlantic, I can find Oreo cookies and I can find smooth peanut butter. I can find Newman’s Own microwave popcorn and I can find Aunt Jemima pancake mix. I can find Philadelphia cream cheese and I can find Graham Crackers.
But I miss my honey-frosted mini-wheats, I miss Barbara’s Bakery Cinnamon Puffins, I miss decent tortillas and chunky salsa, I miss the Jiffy corn muffin mix, and most of all, I miss Reese’s Peanut Butter cups.
Particularly the mini, bite-size ones, we used to have bucketloads of at my office.
Thankfully, my good blog friend Jackie in London had included a bunch of them in her generous food gift package. We are working our way through them sloooowly, with the prudence and attention of those who know something is in short supply.
