Of U2 Covers and Candy Soulmates

My British BFF Felicity went to see The Killers in London this weekend and made sure she got this video:

Because she knows how much I love Brandon Flowers covering songs by U2!!

And because she’s the World’s Most Awesome Candy Soulmate, she also sent me THIS for my birthday!!

 

FUCK YEAH CADBURY!!!

Check out my booty!

No, not that you pervs 😉

This weekend I was in NYC and did some shopping at Myers of Keswick to stock up on English treats and goodies. When I got home I had a package from my lovely and darling friend Felicity in England who sent me a “Cheer up” package after my last Annoying Boy Drama.

Makes Annoying Boy Drama TOTALLY worth it!!

So tonight I thought I should organize all the new stuff with all the treats already in my cupboards and whoa! Check this out!!:

I need a bigger cupboard!

And TBH – I didn’t even put in the jar of Cadbury spread Kathryn sent me, or the chocolate/minty English things I have! Those Mr. Big snack cakes are TO DIE FOR and I found them in Canada when I was Boy Band Stalking NKOTBSB. Felicity (who is CLEARLY my Candy Soulmate!) hasn’t heard of them so they may just be a Canadian Cadbury confection but they are the type of thing that you moan when you’re eating it because it’s so fucking delicious.

I have a colleague about to leave for London and when she asked me what I wanted her to bring back I honestly said, “no candy!” (and it felt weird!)

Happy Cadbury Creme Egg Day!

You may have heard I’m a bit obsessed with Cadbury:

Isn’t that adorable? Wee little Creme Eggs! So very British. I actually got them at Tea & Sympathy, an English shop in New York.

As a friend said on FB today, “Cadbury Cremes are the reason to enjoy Easter” well, those and Cadbury Mini Eggs of course !

Death by Dairy Milk

I am going to England in October. I’ll give you two guesses why 😉

But not only will my trip involve pretty boy rock stars from Vegas, but a visit to only the BEST PLACE ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH!!!

I discovered this existed last year and have been fascinated by it ever since. My friend Kathryn who will be my Traveling-Partner-in-Crime/Hostess, lives close to this Utopia and has promised me we can go. Do you know what they have at Cadbury World??:

All I know is last year their website had a photo from the shop of tree trunk sized Flake Bar displays!!

As a huge fan of English chocolate, Cadbury products and Cadbury vans parked at concerts in Dublin – I am very excited about this little excursion. Especially now that I see they serve a Cream Tea with scones!!!

Brandon Flowers, Cadbury Mecca and tea with scones. I do not see a reason to come home really.
