Morrisons. Aisles & Aisles of Deliciousness.

Today at Morrisons (a British grocery store) I literally cleared out their Starbursts display. I am proud of this. Granted, there were only 5 bags on display, but still!

I love Morrisons. And because of that, I love living in Algeciras just a little bit more. I mean, where else in Spain can you jump on a bus, and 30 minutes later be happily looking through aisles and aisles of american-ness deliciousness?
What's that?
You mean, you don't know anywhere else? Exactly! Granada might have the La Alhambra, Barcelona might have La Sagrada Familia, but Algeciras has Gibraltar a mere 30 minutes away, and Gibraltar has American Food!

You might be thinking I'm over reacting just a tad....but if you've been living in Spain for the last month and been making do with UTH milk, had a craving for bagels and cream cheese but been unable to satisfy it, or been to a candy store and wanted something delicious but didn't recognize anything, than you should be able to understand my excitement.

(By the way, for anyone who isn't a fan of UTH milk, try the GOAT MILK. It has a much milder taste here than back in the states, and I like it 10x better. Try it and let me know what you think!)


  1. I'm a pretty big fan of milk that comes from cows and is cold :P
    I love you :)

  2. Well yes, I like it too, but in a land where the only milk you can find has been boxed and sitting out a shelf for who knows how long, it's nice to know that at least there is a slightly better-tasting alternative :)

  3. Usually at places like Carrefour/Mercadona, they'll have fresh milk too!
