foods of the motherland

Friday. 07. 9. 2010.

It’s amazing how one misses the foods that are so readily available when they’re suddenly not available.

For example…
I honestly can’t remember the last time I had a package of Dunkaroos. Remember those? The cookies with the frosting and the dipping. Well, I wouldn’t mind having some of that right now. But when I was back in Canada, didn’t even occur to me to go get some.

Mind you, there are certain foods that you may THINK tasted good but when you get around to having it, it’s no where near as good. I learned that lesson when I asked Fredrik to bring me back a box of Twinkies. I had 1 and threw out the rest ’cause they were sickeningly sweet.

Browsing the aisles of the supermarket while I was in Canada, I noticed that nearly EVERYTHING was processed. Now I’m certainly not one of those “I don’t touch processed foods” nazis but I did notice that since living here in Sweden, I’ve cut way down on the amount of processed foods I eat. Partly due to the lack of selections here. In a way, I’m kind of glad that I’m away from the foods of North America, where people buy brownies and cookies instead of bake their own.
