Monday's mail brought me this awesome gift package of international candy. My friend Susie went snowshoeing in France and Switzerland a few months ago and sent me this box of treats she bought for me while on her travels. I've already devoured the Lion bar which I found mighty tasty. It consisted of a cream filled wafer (think those pink and yellow sugar wafer cookies), covered by caramel and krispies - all coated in chocolate. Very big bite, almost a meal in itself.
I'm was so excited to get the Haribo strawberry candies. I used to get candies similar to these when my family would go over to Windsor, Ontario when I was younger. I also picked some up in Germany last summer. As far as I know they are not sold in the USA, which is disappointing. More on their awesomeness, and the other Haribo treats, in another post. Stay tuned...
