Blogging By Mail - goodies from Brazil!
I got my Blogging By Mail package last night! Ooh, very exciting this one - I could see from the box that my package came all the way from Brazil! It was sent by Patricia of Technicolor Kitchen, and as the theme was "my favorites", she sent me several of her favorite candy.
MY favorite of those was definitely the peanut brittle - pé-de-moleque - that you see in the middle of the photo in the large, round box. Yum! I graciously donated some of them to Tesse who happened to be over for the taste-testing - Tesse is an avid golfer, and these are perfect to stick in your bag for a quick mid-course pick-me-up.
There's also Dulce de Leche sticks - very sweet!, a sort of banana candy that's really interesting and intensely banana, and Brazil's answer to M&M:s, Confeti!
I love getting to try goodies like these, from the other side of the world. I love how diverse this planet is, and how we can all learn from one another. Blogging By Mail may seem like a small thing, but really, I think it's important to share your culture, and this is a good way to do it. So, a big thanks to Patricia for my lovely package, and to Stephanie for hosting this round.
And - head over to Katie at Other People's Food - she's the one I sent a package to, and she has a really nice blog!
