Hold your horses. I know you just clicked on the link because you want free stuff, but I would like to use this time to make you read my drivel. Please and thank you.
I went to World Market a few days ago after hearing about it from a friend and I am so impressed. If you don't have one near you, it's basically a chain store that has furniture, handcrafts, foods, wines, etc. from around the world. I don't think it should come as much of a surprise that I spent half my time in the candy section. Here's the loot from the purchase:
Anyone remember that Sesame Street song "One of these things is not like the other, one of these things just doesn't belong?" Yeah, me either. That sounds totally lame. Honestly though - can you spot the one thing in this purchase that's out of place? We have: Pepero chocolate cookies from Korea, Dutch Licorice, Aero chocolate from the UK, German Bueno chocolates, HI-CHEW candy from China (or Japan? Anyone?) meringues, plenty of ginger candies....and cabbage.
That stuff is like crack. It's similar to sauerkraut, but it's made with red cabbage and a little shredded apple so it's much sweeter. And it's quite possibly my favorite food. Seriously, on my birthday that's what my mom would make me. I love that stuff.
This morning was another great run for me. Not in a braggy, holy cow I'm awesome kind of way, but it feels good to push myself and not feel bad. Hooray! I managed 10 x 400 meter sprints at a 7:30 pace and I didn't want to die at the end.
Alright, alright. Enough about me. Winners of the nuun giveaway are:
steph chows and Christine from Bookishly Boisterous - congrats! Send me your mailing information so I can mail you some goodies. Feel free to mix your nuun with vodka, Christine. I love that idea. Vodka + nuun = dehydrating and re-hydrating all at the same time. Genius.
Do you like ginger flavored candy?
I absolutely love ginger and will basically eat it in any form, but it will shock no one that I like it best when it's covered in sugar. Plus the antibiotics I've been taking give me a horrible taste in my mouth, so ginger covers that right up.
What is your favorite foreign food/meal/candy/drink?
That German red cabbage and Nurnberger sausages are maybe the perfect meal...but then again, Sangria from Spain? Perfect. It's practically a meal with all that fruit floating around.
