Desperate Housewife-y stuff
As I am writing this blog there is a chap outside cutting my grass and pruning my bushes. Our landlord sorts this out for us, and I am thinking of having serious words with this landlord because the chaps who come and do this are NOTHING like the gardener in the Desperate Housewives series, and I truly think I am being diddled with this whole experience 😉
British chocolate from Chocolate Mailbox
Anyway, to keep me from my Desperate Housewife sorrows, I’ve been indulging in REAL chocolate on a daily basis, and by that I naturally mean Cadbury’s chocolate. I got a lovely little package (addressed to the UK Desperate Housewife USA!) through from delightfully-cheeky-in-a-British-way company Chocolate Mailbox.
I got the ‘Cadbury’s Collection’ box, and let me tell you, there are some old delights in there! Double Decker! What? I haven’t had one of them since 1989 when I used to be allowed into town on a Wednesday afternoon from boarding school to get one of them and my Smash Hits magazine. Love it!
My son has not yet discovered these delights, which are being kept in the big ole American fridge way up top out of reach of him because it’s baking blimmin’ hot at the mo! So I scoffed his Crunchie yesterday and I might just have to do the Boost bar today (remember that advert from the 80s UK kids?!), but I’ll let him have the Twirl (his fave), Flake and Cadbury Buttons, cos I am kinda generous. 😉
That box wsa only 10.49GBP – what a Brucey bargain! I know a few Brits here in the USA who would go mad for the ‘Cadbury Crazy’ box! Delivery is swift and the chocs are in fine fettle so get ordering – we all need a treat now and then, don’t we?!
This UK Cadbury chocolate tasted so very different from the crap that is presented to us out here in the USA, so rock on Chocolate Mailbox, thank you for a little bit of creamy heaven!
