I was happy to learn that I can find most things that we have back home, they just might be by a different brand (or the same one with a different name, ex. Lays = Walkers) or be called something different (ex. Cilantro = Coriander). When we first arrived here I'd spend thirty minutes on one food aisle frantically using google to make sense of what I saw. Eventually I caught on though. I think it's more true that we've discovered new food/drinks to fall in love with than really had to mourn the loss of others. Here are five of my favorites!
2. Innocent Real Fruit Smoothies, smoothie drinks seem a bigger deal in Britain, and I'm perfectly fine with that. This brand is so good, plus I love all the healthy tid-bits they put on the cartons.
5. Off-brand Nutella. You mean I can pay £1 and a few pence for a jar of creamy hazelnut chocolate bliss? I must be in the right place.
Besides the obvious ChickfilA, Moe's and Cracker Barrel cravings, I have missed Oikos greek yogurt, hazelnut coffee creamer (and coffee creamers in general) and canned pumpkin. The lack of coffee creamer was the first thing I discovered when we moved here. There's really no such thing since milk is used in coffee instead. Light double cream has been my substitution though and Carnation Evaporated Milk is my back up. And you might remember me raving over the holidays about there not being readily accessable canned pumpkin. Thankfully, I discovered making my own isn't so difficult. Other than these three things, I can't think of anything else that I miss. Obviously, England is treating us well in the food department!
I'm linking up at Alycia's blog the Crowley Party for the first time today! I recently found her blog and have been enjoying it.
