A Trip to the World Food Store - Finally!

Seems like it's been too long since we were last at the world food store, but finally on Friday we had an opportunity to make a quick trip.

As soon as you step foot into the store the thing that strikes you most, is the smell. Sometimes it's not as bad as others - but on Friday it was really nasty. I think it's just a combination of totally different foods from lots of countries and a lot of frozen food/fish/seafood/meat.

It's not really possible to pick up much if you are in there for only a 1/2 hr or so like we were. We bought a couple of old favorites - some chocolate bars from England and some Yan Yan and some "floppy bread" as I call it or "flesh bread" as the kids call it. I also bought a variety of apples someone recommended as being "wonderful" and a few other items. We did buy some WONDERFUL cheese from Ireland. I could have eaten the whole block myself. In one sitting.

Just found your blog, and kudos for trying new things with your kids. I blog about going to every ethnic store I can find, with my kids, too. I'm teaching world peace through food! Love the gingerbread giants, too, I will be making some this year as it reminded me that my Mom used to make them for presents. ShopCookEat, Laurie Hawel

Ethnic stores are wonderful teaching tools! I know the "aroma" can be unsettling...just walk faster!
