I couldn't believe my eyes when this box was delivered to my bedside!!!!!!
Is this posting the result of a silly conversation about eating Dutch sweets in Marie's fishtank? See 0n the brown wrapper, Contains no fish!!! Heleen!!! This is amazing, thank youuuu!!!
Real Zeeuwse Roomboter BABBELAARS!!!!! (blue can!) And other beautiful, foreign and interesting treats to aid in my recovery! My stomach is very happy so far! The Speculaas are delicious, similar to Latvian Xmas gingerbread biscuits, 'piparkūkas.'
Heleen said that Babbelaars are yuck, but they are like lightly salted caramel butter lollies, YUM!
The Kinder eggs suffered in the heatwave and were melted, as was the Bros chocolate- all the air bubbles are gone and there's a lump of chocolate in one half of the pack. I tested a Kinder egg and it was still ok, so I'm sure the rest will be fine. A wonderful gift indeed!!
Oh, and here's a card that made me chuckle...
"Hallo Blobvis!" Vis means fish in Dutch. I know that because my VW mechanic's surname was Vis and I always told him to spell it PROPERLY!!! "VIZ!"
Thanks again dearest Heleen!!!
