American Food Haul

I don't really share many food posts over on this little blog of mine, which is quite surprising considering my huge amount of love for it! When I lived in London I posted a review of The Breakfast Club in Spitalfields & whilst I was scrolling through old posts for inspiration & ideas I remembered how much I'd enjoyed putting together that piece & made a note, both mental & on my iPhone, to document more foodie things which brings me to today's post, an American food haul! 

One evening after Dom had picked me up from work we stopped off at Tesco to pick up something for tea & I was also keen for him to show me the American food aisle that I mentioned in this post. I let the excitement get to me a little too much & even Dom didn't manage to restrain me from spending a slightly silly amount on a certain box of cereal... I did only intend to buy some poptarts as I wasn't expecting to be faced with so much choice, but never mind! It seems I have developed a slight obsession with Peanut Butter recently so naturally I had to buy the Peanut Butter flavoured M&Ms as well as Reese's Puffs. Reese's Peanut Butter cups are my downfall at the moment, whenever I'm buying lunch I can never resist picking up a pack! Reese's Puff cereal is a 100 times better than I anticipated which makes me feel less bad about paying £5 for it, eating it by the handfuls whilst sat in bed is my favourite way to enjoy it haha. The Wrigley's Extra Dessert Delights Mint Chocolate Chip Chewing Gum is something I've seen quite a lot over on Instagram so I was excited to discover it sitting on the shelves amongst all the other American foods. The Strawberry Marshmellow Fluff was actually Dom's pick as he had never tried it before, I prefer the original version though. Finally, last but not least I actually remembered to get the one item I went in for, poptarts, Hot Fudge Sundae flavour! I've been super jealous of America having all these different flavours of gum/m&ms/poptarts that I'm glad I can experience a few of them now without having to fly across the Atlantic Ocean first!

When we get our own place again I definitely want to share some of my favourite recipes, not just cakes & sweet treats but also savoury options like the risotto I seem to forever be cooking & a chicken dish I love to cook on special occasions/when I can be bothered making the effort! Look out for them in the near future (:

  1. My little boy is a huge fan of Lucky Charms which cost an obscene amount in our Supermarkets if you can actually find them!


  2. Yes please to risotto and chicken recipe... I'm always looking for different ways to cook chicken as it's my fav meat.


  3. Peanut butter M&Ms are my absolute favourites, love them! x

  4. Great post! Im not sure what it is about American food but there sweet treats always look so amazing! That "fluff" looks amazing!


  5. I think its so interesting to see or read other people's reactions from other countries to our food! I'll be honest, I've had everything on that picture above but the marshmallow fluff. Never seen it in stores but I'm also not a marshmallow kind of person either. I would like to try English treats one day and do some kind of review. It sounds like fun! :)

  6. I personally love the Mint Dark Chocolate M&Ms, they're sooo good (provided that you like mint haha!)

  7. Those pop tarts sound so good! xo

  8. I've picked up the dessert gum before and it is such a weird experience. It really does taste like what it's meant to, and it definitely threw me off.

  9. I saw the peanut butter M&Ms in Tesco the other day too and I regret not buying them!

    And they now sell them in Tesco do you say? Ahh I've never tried any of this and I cannot wait until I next go to Tesco, never thought I'd be saying that! :)
