Ordered a load of American sweets for the kids Christmas, so that should make them happy. Two boxes of US cereal are also ordered for over Christmas! Kids will be hyper enough so I doubt the E numbers in US cereal will make a blind bit of difference :lol: So some scrummy Fruit Loops and Lucky Charms are coming our way!
Also ordered two cans of Duff for the girls!!! Anyone who doesn't watch the Simpsons can ignore this part :lol: Before you all think I've ordered beer, it's an energy drink! Couldn't resist it when I saw it!!

Also ordered Red Velvet cake mixes for Elijah's birthday, need to attempt to make a 16 out of them! Would have ordered one from a bakery, but with her birthday being the 2nd of January they're all ruddy shut and I don't want to collect one on the 31st and have it sitting around the house for a couple of days! She's quite happy with Red Velvet cake though (must admit I am too as it's delicious!)

This might be a silly question, but then I don't know you very well so, are you American or did you live there for a while? I know there must be a reason why you're ordering American sweets lol. I was once sent 'fluff' from a friend over there, but I couldn't bring myself to eat it. And I've tried the Hershey's chocolate that a friend bought back but wasn't too keen on that. I'm sure we used to have Lucky Charms here!

I've been batch cooking for Jack this morning and had to rock him to sleep later than normal (first time in months) as he wouldn't go down for his morning nap, but he is unwell. Won't even take his dummy to sleep as he has a stuffy nose. He's just woken up aswell after 30mins so off I go ha

Nope Scottish through and through :lol: My in-laws used to live in Florida though and I love US cake mixes & frosting, so much tastier than ours (probably all those E numbers!) The kids love peanut butter M&Ms and stuff, no-one like Hersheys it's foul tasting stuff! Never ever touch a US KitKat, Twix or anything else that looks familiar to us, they're Mars stuff is made by Hersheys and it's completely boggin'!!!
Fluff is amazing!! Makes hot chocolate taste fab!

That place rips you off! They want £1.75 for M&Ms, my US site only wants £1.09! Nearly £10 for a box of cereal, US site wants £6. I'm sticking to online shopping :lol: Oh and that shop wants £1.75 for Reeses Pieces, Sainsburys sell them for 64p!!!!

It's called The Stateside Candy company. Unfortunately it's two shops are in Aldershot and Guildford, so too far away for a visit (or maybe that should say fortunately :lol:)

Peanut Butter M & Ms :D . Yummy! N & I ate a whole massive, family bag of them between us one night and boy did we feel sick after. Bear in mind their family bags are about the size of a cereal packet so not like one of ours!

We've got a few American Sweets shops in Cardiff but they're so expensive......
