Junk Food from Europe

I have this weird thing I'm obsessed with, please don't judge me (you're welcome to laugh though) I'm OBSESSED with foreign junk food. In fact, if I get to go into a supermarket while overseas it is VERY very exciting for me.

Junk Food Holland
Top Row: Juice Packs, Cherry Coke, Orangina, Fanta, Bolagnaise Chips
Bottom Row:  Muesli Bars, Coated Peanuts, Haribo Gummy Candy, Stroopwafels

While on our Euro Trip me and my (equally obsessed with junk food) Hubby ate as much junk as we felt like while we had the satisfaction of not feeling bad about the weight we put on, can't do that now though :-(

Holland Junk Food
Haribo Cherry Candy (YUM) Cranberry Apple Juice, Heart Breaker Chips 

Let me reminisce in those beautiful junk-food-filled days in Europe:

Holland & Amsterdam:
Supermarkets galore! EXCITING! We stocked up on salami meats, chips, soft drink and of course CANDY! In Amsterdam we found the great Febo, Febo is like a fast food vending machine, it's a wall of fried food where you put the money in and out comes a great tasting burger. I heart Febo!

Dutch Cookies
Cookie mix I bought for my niece to make, they even have edible images inside!

Three words - pizza, pasta and gelato! Mmmmm Gelato! Every day we were in Italy we promised our tour guide we would try a different Gelato. Melon, Nutella & Caramel were my picks, I miss Italian Gelato!

Eating a crepe under the Eiffel Tower while watching the light display, how could you not?! You also have to eat a fresh croissant and drink an ice cold Orangina - when in Rome...I mean Paris!

Chips Galore:
There are SO many different brands and flavours of chips (crisps?) in Europe, some of my faves were Fonzies (Ayyyyye!) Nandos chips and Cheese burger flavoured -which actually tasted like a flame grilled Wopper from BK!

I Scream, You Scream, We all Scream:
I found my favourite chocolate bar, Bounty Bar, in ice cream form! Yumyumyum! In Switzerland we were served a Swiss Flag ice cream and in London we spent three nights in a row trying Ben & Jerry's ice cream. We had Cookie Dough, Strawberry Cheesecake and Caramel Chew Chew.

Now it is time I got up an exercised, gotta work off that European junk food somehow!
