He brought a load of goodies with him...mostly things that we enjoyed when we lived there.
The kids each got a bag of Teeth and Lips.
You heard me right.
I can't even imagine how the idea for them ever started.
The picture on the bag doesn't help at all.
Two of my favs!
Hovis biscuits and the Daily Mail paper.
Digestive biscuits are very popular in the UK. They are a slightly sweet wheat biscuit (cookie to Americans) that absolutely crumbles apart in your mouth. Definitely worth the purchase if you ever run across them.
While Hovis are my favorite, McVitie's is a nice second.
You can even get them covered in chocolate.
When I was in the hospital after giving birth to Jenelle, I was desperate for a Diet Coke and very hungry!
Those fantastic nurses from the NHS brought me a freezing cold Diet Coke and entire package of McVitie's biscuits, which I devoured completely.
I know that doesn't sound like a very good start in life for a nursing baby...
But she turned out alright!
