happy alvaro caramel

we were back in morocco last october and visited a much larger carrefour, where i had fun perusing the aisles for more products-named-after-people to continue my collection. here are the latest finds:

truth be told, i don’t know if these are actually moroccan or maybe spanish or french brands… but i found them pretty entertaining nonetheless. :D here’s one that it not strictly a name, but pretty funny for us portuguese to see a butter named after a national poet:

aaaaand, last but not least, the ubiquitous vache qui rit…

… family size!

trip to a finnish supermarket

just before this unscripted summer hiatus, i was about to write one last post about finland – the obligatory trip to the supermarket. it’s always one of my favourite parts of any trip :) here are some things that drew our attention:

it’s funny how many moomin or angry birds-themed things you can find in a finnish supermarket!

the good thing about visiting cities that are not very big or well known, is that you don’t feel the pressure to do all the touristy things that are almost mandatory in big cities. and so you free up much more time for other fun stuff. like sampling the local cuisine and looking at stuff at the supermarkets! these are some of our local favourite finds:

huge knäckebröd wheel

jam in a plastic tube

cute chocolate packaging

liquorice flakes

topping sauce

lingon tea

lingon jam

nutella & fake nutella

barcaffe coffee & turkcaffee – same thing, apparently, but they sell it under that name outside slovenia!
