Raspberry M&Ms
« on: August 22, 2013, 08:37:52 am »
I have just spent a few days with my daughter down at Ramsgate. She has moved there because she has gained a promotion at work and has a beautiful top-floor flat in a Georgian house overlooking the beach and harbour.

Just round the corner from her flat is a 'posh' sweet shop and, as well as Jelly Belly jellybeans and old-fashioned sweets in jars, they sell American imports. I managed to get a largish bag of Raspberry M&Ms for £6. Extravagant, I know, but no different from a 'posh' bottle of wine (as I reasoned to my daughter!). They will last me a few weeks. They are nice - not too sweet - but raspberryish enough to make me feel the expense was worth it.

Now I just want to try the cherry ones! (They didn't have those)
Old but spicey!

We have a shop here that's dedicated to American imports. I bet they do these. I avoid the place like the plague.

Congrats to your daughter for her promotion, I hope she's very happy in her new job and home. It sounds lovely. I love living by the ocean.

I have to rely on online resources for anything really interesting because the choice of chocolate here is basic to say the very least.
I had never even heard of raspberry m&m's.  :o

Thanks Rainbow.  She's a paramedic but is now working as a Critical Care Paramedic. You mentioned living on an island - can I ask which one?

Of course.
We moved to a farmhouse on Anglesey just over two years ago and I absolutely love it.  Best move ever.  ;D

I like the mint version too. Both use semi sweet dark chocolate which is nice.  :)

My freind bought back some chocolate coffee beans from the states once. Now I've had them over here before, and to compare the two is like comparing a block of Edam to a seahorse. The american ones simply took my head off... was on a very (surely illegal) high from these every time I had a handful. Proper trippy stuff.

Thanks. It really is. I feel so lucky right now. Sadly the chocolate choice available locally is terrible, but even so, I feel lucky.  ;D

Damn, I'd love to live on an island. But judging by Bergerac there's almost weekly murders on islands... so maybe no then.
