American Food Shop!

I was searching online a few weeks ago for tinned pumpkin - that ever so popular American product that is totally elusive over here - and I found an online store that sells American food. I then saw that they had a shop and reaslied it was only 15 minutes drive away - dangerous information! Today I went over there for some tinned pumpkin and came back with a selection of random, but very American food!

My American food stash!

My hoarde included; Lucky Charms, diet Mountain Dew, trial box of Fruit Loops, watermelon flavoured chewing gum, tinned pumkin and some Hersheys Kisses.

Hershey's Kisses!

I was most excited about the Lucky charms! For those who have forgotten what they are, or haven't had them before, they're like Cheerio style cereal with freeze dried marshmellow shapes in.

Mmm - sugary goodness!

Now I know what you may be thinking - they don't sound very healthy. But fear not, they are "wholegrain guaranteed" ;D
I'm not sure what to do with the pumpkin now that I have it - I often see it used in porridge, so may give that a go. :)


  1. Lucky Charms are like my kryptonite!!! Where in the UK are you??? I am moving there in September, it'll be nice to know of a place where I can feed my lucky charms addiction!

  2. I make a rather tasty pumpkin granola, with exactly that pumpkin, so that would work! Alternatively, you can make it into some tasty and relatively heatlhy cookies with oats. But pumpkin porridge, with cinnamon and raisins is DELISH!
