So in the era of Brexit, me and nb thought it would be a nice idea to do a chocolate exchange between the UK and Germany to experience a little more of each other countries and just because X-freaks are the nicest people.  :D
Plus, who doesn't like to receive chocolate and gifts in the post!? ;D

Today I opened a lovely package full of tasty German chocolate including lots of my favourite Ritter Sport! Toshi would certainly be jealous of this selection of goodies! I have enough chocolate now to last me 12 months or at least a few weeks depending on how many stressed out days I have lately!  :P

Thank you sooo much nb! It is very generous and kind of you! I hope my package from the UK arrives with you soon!

Here are some photos of my sweet stash!









Fellow X-Freaks if you would like to partake in the chocolate exchange and receive a little package of UK goodies let me know or maybe others would like to send people some of their native goodies! Chocolate is the food of love after all and we can't let Toshi be the only one to eat all the sweets!

This is so sweet! Your collection is amazing  :o nb hooked you uuuuup!

We are not trying to keep the legacy—we are trying to move forward, so our sound is going to change. I’m ready to be criticized, for example by fans saying "you should rather be this style." I’m ready for it, I’m okay with any concept of criticism-Yoshiki

The package was damn heavy. :D It's a really cool idea to exchange sweets and chocolate.

Please everyone else upload pictures too if you exchange some sweets. I wanna see all the different sweets from around the world. :D

OM NOM NOM! I'm jelly and hungry now!

Who wants a care package from France? (maybe not entirely chocolate though, as it's summer and it might melt)
PM me your addresses, I love sending out snail mail  :-*

(PS - nb, pin this post, maybe? this is such a lovely idea!)

Oh yeah, sending sweet love around the world is nice. I'm happy to send out more UK goodies if anyone wants any. Though this isn't going to help with my attempt at a sugar free diet!  ;D

I should give a review of some of these goodies. The chocolate cream cookies are dangerous! They are sooooo good. The kitkats also taste different to our kitkats in the UK. I thought that they would have tasted the same.

LOOK. WHAT. WE'VE. GOT!!!111!!



Thank you so much for your lovely package fluffy. I think you british are really into peppermint. How can the bloody royal mail dare to take so long?

Now we have chocolate for the rest of the year, too. :D Oh and thanks for the card and the little origami. The card may not be british enough - I mean no royals, no union jack - but the explanations were very interesting to read. I feel very educated on british chocolate now. ;D

Oh, and we'll also compare the taste of the german Bounty, Mars, Malteser and Curly Wurly, too. :)

You're welcome guys! xx

I wasn't sure what you had over there in Germany and what was the same so tried to think of things you might not have. Yeah, Tesco's was sadly lacking in a more patriotic card! No red telephone boxes, British Bulldogs or the Queen drinking tea, not even a Union Jack in sight!

Next time I should send some crisps. I'm biased but I think we have the best crisps in the world! We have soooo many flavours.

Oh la la! Oui oui! Le chocolat!

Look at what our lovely Matsumoto sent me from the land of food, romance and the Eiffel Tower.





Merci beaucoup mon amie!

I love the little cat card and the tea to appeal to my 'Britishness' as the day cannot be survived without a good cup of tea!

It seems that Toshi isn't the only one with a massive sweet tooth!

Thank yoooou sweetheart x bisous x

Our good old Queens postage service isn't as speedy as the European post it seems.

Oh that Lindt with the cookies or white chocolate or whatever that is looks like heaven.   ;D

Sometimes our tears blinded the love
We lost out dreams along the way
But I never thought you'd trade your soul to the fates
Never thought you'd leave me alone
