American Liberty City Haul

 Hello fabulous people!

Probably not feeling that fabulous right now, after all is Monday (oooh the drama...) unless you're one of those weird, mildly annoying, creatures (probably from a different specie) who are joyful, energetic, and overly excited, on Mondays, or on any morning really. I should have the right to enjoy my dread and sorrow, and overall feeling sorry for myself, in peace.

But what am I talking about? Tsk Tsk... Already rambling... Today's post is a little haul of random goodies! Actually, who am I kidding? Not random, food goodies, mostly guilty inducing sweet treats!

Well, I live in Portugal, a long way from the US, in a different continent, so off course we have different products, but through movies, youtube, ect, I am exposed to a lot of American stuff that makes me curious.

So you can imagine how excited I was when i knew about the opening of a shop specialised in *drumrolls* American Products that we don't have here.

The other day I went there and got some things to try, things that I've heard of before.

I almost let out a little scream when I saw the S'more Pop Tarts! However, now that I have tried it, I have to say I was a little disappointed =s I think my expectations were too high, but I pictured marshmallow gooey goodness flowing out of the cracker. Still can't say I don't like it, it's chocolate and marshmallow after all.

And because S'mores Pop Tarts isn't sugar enough, I bought a little sampling of chocolates, because one cannot live in the ignorance. I hope I made good choices! I got me some Hershey's, Butterfingers, Reese's Nutrageous and Snickers Peanut Butter. This last one I already tried, it's good (I mean, peanut butter... duh...) but I wouldn't be able to eat the entire thing in one go. Still prefer the original.

Also I got Hershey's Unsweetened Cocoa powder. This one was because I remembered Estée from EssieButton talking about it. Already made some of my special hot chocolate with it, and it's really nice.

I got some Extra chewing gum, again, because so many people talk about it. And some Nerds... for my boyfriend... (^.^)

Finally I got some panko. Was totally surprised to find it there! Not the most American product... But I was so happy, since I've been eyeing a few recipes that ask for it. And this particular panko is so good! Definitely my favourite purchase. Right that day I made an Asian inspired dish, with sea food, and squid done two ways, one of them with the panko. Huuuummm... So good!

Ok that's it for today =) I know I've been lacking on the beauty posts, but I haven't bought that much new beauty products lately...

I have yo go now, my dog is sleeping so cute right in front of me, I need to go and cuddle it. I'm having withdrawals, seriously!

Stay Gorgeous!
