A Little Taste of England
A little British imports store that I noticed "by chance" proved to be a wonderful discovery -- in the form of a cold can of Ribena. If you've never tried black currant, you're missing out.
Luscious, fruity deliciousness, with just a hint of fizz. Pablo claims it tastes like medicine, but I prefer to compare it to ambrosial nectar. When I'm in a philosophizing mood, that is.
To my dismay, the shop was out of Bassett's Jelly Babies (which to my mind are the most whimsically delightful candies of all time), but the store owner promised that they'd have more in soon.
Oh, how good it is to have a little taste of England once more!
