The Bar Hook Up

No, not that kind of hook up. Although, that would have made for a way more interesting Friday night, that’s for sure 😉

As I had mentioned earlier, my landlord came downstairs to let me know about the whole rent cheque debacle, but he also brought me a package that was delivered today. Oh, how I love packages!

Sneak peek inside.

Hello food bars! The lovely K from K’s Good Eats sent me this package, after I expressed my sadness of finishing my last Kashi Dark Chocolate Coconut Granola bar (side note – Kashi, seriously? Sell more of your products in Canada). But I definitely didn’t expect the bounty that I received!

Holy bars, Batman! So many good things, none of which I can get here. Shall we get a closer look?

food 4343

A selection of Clif MoJo bars. I love me some sweet & salty, so I’ve been wanting to test these babies out.

food 4344

Clif White Chocolate Macadamia Nut, Luna Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie, TJ’s Crunchy Peanut Butter Granola Bars, and Clif Peanut Butter Z-Bars. Do you think she knows I like me some peanut butter?

food 4345

A selction of Qbel Wafer Rolls. Mmmm, chocolate.

food 4346

A dark chocolate & hazelnut toffee chocolate bar. Um, yes please. This one makes me feel at home, with all that French on the package 😉

And of course, the whole reason for the package in the first place – Kashi Dark Chocolate Coconut granola bars. Love!

K, you rock my world. I don’t think I’ll be needing to purchase any bars for a very long time. At least not while I’m still living in Victoria, that’s fo’ sho’.

As tempting as it was to just taste test all the goods for dinner, I decided to eat up leftovers from the fridge instead.

Wieners & beans redux.

With the roasted potatoes. I was too lazy to cook up any veggies.

I washed it all down with a Dry Soda Co. Vanilla Bean Soda.

How much do I love the Vanilla Bean soda? So good! Not sweet, but such a refreshing vanilla flavour. Definitely an adult soda (sans alcohol). I would definitely shell out the cash to buy a 4 pack of these.

Eventually I made my way to the gym. It seems like I haven’t been there in way too long. I busted out 45 sweaty minutes on the stair climber with my Rolling Stone magazine. Stupid me though, I put my HRM band on, and then forgot to put on the watch. Uh, duh! I was probably still thinking about that yummy vanilla soda 😉

I also had ice cream on the brain since this afternoon, so that’s exactly what I dished out.

Purdy’s Hedgehog Ice Cream. Chocolate & hazelnut. Oh yeah. Let’s take a moment to bask in its glory.

So anyways, where were we? After my ice cream moment, I had some quality time with Dr Mario & my MJ music collection. I realized that I’m missing some key tunes from my MJ library. I think some iTunes shopping is required to remedy the situation.

Now it’s way past my bed time, and I have some serious grocery shopping that needs to happen tomorrow. I must rest up! Night 🙂

    I’ve never heard of the Qbel wafer rolls, I bet they are yummy with coffee or a cold class of milk! And, the Cliff bar Chocolate Macadamia flavor, yum! What an awesome package (haha, that sounded funny).

    The vanilla bean soda sounds great too, and again I’ve never heard of it or seen it. It must be a CAnada thing? And it has alcohol in it?? Wowzers.

    Have a great weekend! Enjoy your..package!

    I love Mojo bars! They are the best for sweet/salty flavors

    You like peanut butter?! No way!!

    I’m glad you got it and the custom’s people didn’t eat it 😉 Like I said, let me know what you do and don’t like so the next time we play country exchange I can include some oldies and some newbies!
