Marshmallow has a series of posts about her time in Melbourne, including this lovely one about our first meeting. Awww.
Now, as if it wasn't enough that she's as lovely IRL as you'd expect, while being 17 buckets of fun to boot, she ALSO bestowed snacks upon me!
Toffee Pops and Squiggles. OMFG. Both are NZ chocolate biscuits. The biscuit base is chewier that Australian ones (which are quite dry/brittle, I hadn't noticed until I tried these). The toffee ones are biscuit and caramel (I'm so ghey for caramel) covered in chocolate, the squiggles are this lovely righ chocolate fudge, choclate bisuit and pieces of... you know, clinkers? That. So. Effing. Good. I'm rationing them. Or rather, Boyfriend has hidden them, and is doling out pieces in increments. It really is the only way.
Anyway, it was lovely to meet her, and everything she says is true: we totally clicked and it was heaps of fun.
But then I read her post and got hungry for Oriental Tea House. Mmmm, anglo-ised yum cha...
I'm all snacky today. It may be PMS.
