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?
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!)
