Brown Paper Packages Tied Up With (Tape)

That's my play on words from one of my favorite movies of all time, The Sound of Music. I love getting cardboard boxes delivered to my home that are full of goodies. I got one a few weeks ago that made me very happy, the contents of which will help keep me warm and content on a nearly daily basis during the cold months of the year.


Open it up, and look! Cow-spotted tissue paper. Hmmm, cows. Where did I go this summer that had cows? (Hint: I wrote 17 blog posts about this place!)


Open it up even further and there's the treasure! Five cans of rich and creamy Anne of Green Gables hot chocolate, shipped from Prince Edward Island, Canada. This hot chocolate is so delicious. I bought a can when we were there this summer and after I tried it, I was hooked. It's heavenly with a big dollop of whipped cream on top, and I like that it can be used with water or milk. It beats the pants off of the Swiss Miss and even the Godiva and other nicer brands that I've used over the last several years. I love it! And I love that a little piece of the island warms my heart while I'm away.


An added bonus is that it makes me feel rather cultured to order my cocoa from another country and to have French words written on one side of the can. ("Chocolat Chaud," anyone?) And it's not even very expensive. If you want to check it out and maybe even order some of your own (it would be an awesome investment!), go here.


I got myself a box of caramels while I was at it. Why not?


Because these are indeed a few of my favorite things!

Looks yummy! I love hot chocolate!! And chocolate caramels are my favorite!!! Great package to find on your doorstep, indeed.

In NH a lot of our stuff is printed in french as well, since we border Quebec, Canada. You also see "welcome" in french on our state border signs, and you see mile signs with both miles and kilometers (for our Canadian friends).

That's cool! I didn't realize there was so much French stuff in NH. I saw some in Maine, especially up near the border.
