Look what Mr Postman bought me!!

It is not often I am rendered speechless much to the chagrin of my nearest and dearest, but they would have reveled in my inability to utter any sensible words ( in any language) when I received my first swap package this morning. I am still rather speechless (yes, apparently this is me being speechless) so I will let a picture do what it's intended and that is to speak a thousand words.
Salt Water Taffy
Butterscotch Chips White Cocolate Chips Rice mellow Creme - HELLO! Smooch Lions Chick-O-Stick x 2 Golden Smacker Vanilla Marshmallow Treat Chocolate Marshmallow Treat Super Sour Worms Hot n' Spicey Jerky - OH YEAH! Blueberry Fruit Strip Peach Fruit Strip Crispy Cat Candy bar - it's not made from cats - don't worry Sprinklez!!!! Peanut Butter Bite x 2 Mamba Fruit Chews Peanutbutter Creme Cookies - *SWOON* Liquid Smoke x 2 - TWO!!!TWO!!! Worcestershire Sauce - I haven't had this for YEARS!!! Gummi Bears x 2 Sour patch Mike Ike - aren't these names just THE BEST! Ricemilk Chocolate!! Old Bay - come to pappa moon Not beef stock cubes Not Chick'n stock cubes Cherry Jelly - *FAINTS* Newman-O's - I left my body at this point Home made Vegan Soap WOWZERS HUH!!! Being a bit shy of the required 500 posts over at PPK I was not eligible to participate in the swap Package that is set up over there - but All kitties flock to me took pity on my plight and contacted me via private messaging to see if we would like to do one between ourselves. HELL YEAH! Buying Vegan goodies is just as much fun as receiving Vegan goodies - if not more so and I fervently went about buying goodies to send on it's merry way to the good ole U S of A. We agreed to spend 20 dollars plus the postage. WELL! Either things across the pond are WAY WAY cheaper than this side of the Atlantic or All kitties flock to me spent LOADS more than 20 dollars! I'm so excited about so many of these wonderful goodies she sent me - especially the coveted Liquid Smoke and Old Bay seasoning. BUT I think I have to say my most favourite item is the hand made soap made by her mum! It smells DIVINE!!! All kitties - you are the greatest and this was SOOO much fun, thank you so much for all these wonderful treats you sent me. And now I'm off to stuff myself silly and wait for the Sugar rush to kick in. YEAH!

Holy moly, Jeni! That is awesome!

Marni said...

Lucky you! Sounds like your swappie went a little over $20. Ok, a lot over. But don't you deserve it?

I'm off to google Rice Mellow Creme because I've never heard of it before. If it's what I think it is, well I just may cry. :::sniff::: Cry and buy. :D

Georgia said...

Enjoy the package!

Felicity said...

Wow, what an awesome goody package... I'm sooo jealous!

Laura said...

I am not sure what kind of soap that is, but it might be tea tree. My mother-in-law doesn't label the bars she gives us, but that is what it reminded me of when I tried mine today.

Well, I *think* I put 20 US dollars worth of stuff in there, but that tricksey vegan swap faery must've snuck a buttload more in there when I wasn't looking ;)

That box was so much fun to shop for/put together. I tetris'd the hell out of it, and looking at that picture, I still can't believe that much stuff fit in there.

Those Smooch Lions are delicious. I picked them up while I was in Florida. I wish I brought more home with me now!

Enjoy <3
