My new housemate, Sabrina, was lucky enough to receive a care package from her dad when he came to visit the states from Germany a few days ago. She was feeling a bit homesick, so she was happy to get a bunch of treats from home. These included Haribo gummies (I had no idea they were actually German!) quite a few jars of Nutella, an entire shoebox full of Nutella-to-go, and other sweets, snacks, and bars of chocolate.
Her dad also brought some things for me. It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of dark chocolate, and I was excited to see there was a bit in the loot especially for me. Danke Herr Ulbrich!
I can't say there's much of a difference between "American" Nutella and German Nutella, as they're the same company, but the American version comes in a plastic bottle as opposed to a glass one, and according to Sabrina, it's about twice as expensive here in the US!
What sweets would you miss if you moved away from home?
What would you put in a care package for a friend?
