Hi friends, I’m back! We just returned from a lovely family vacation to Indian Rocks Beach, Florida. It was so relaxing and everything a hot holiday should be :) I’ll be writing more about our trip soon.
Some of you might think this is kooky but one of my favorite things to do while visiting the US is to check out the grocery stores and the variety of foods you have there that we can’t get here. It’s so fun for me to make new discoveries. Of course this chip addict goes straight to the junk food aisle. I found quite the selection of interesting chip flavors. I wasn’t crazy about any of them but that didn’t stop me from eating them of course lol.
The rest of the delights I found (in either Publix or Walmart) were all delicious! I can’t vouch for them not being available in other parts of Canada but I haven’t seen them in stores here in Alberta.
Gosh these Van’s snack bars were good!
I’m not normally a sweet cereal fan but these were yummy!
I love Skinnygirl!
Because of my son’s food allergies we cooked all of our own meals rather than eat out. We had this chicken one night and everyone enjoyed it.
I love trying new treats!! Sure wish I could have brought more home with me in my suitcase :)
