Something to munch on

Been really busy and am running low on pictures for the moment. So just something light for you to munch on while I recharge and reload!

I brought back some Arnotts biscuits from my Australian trip. I think you can find them here too in the local supermarkets but if I'm not mistaken, the Arnotts here are made in Indonesia due to halal reasons.

The family has tried, and finished, two packets already - the Monte Carlo and Custard Creams! But I managed to capture a few shots before they all disappeared!

The mixture of Monte Carlos and Custard Creams in the biscuit tin. Aren't they pretty? They smelt really nice too!

Monte Carlo (left) is a rather unique biscuit and used to be one of my favourites. It's a layer of vanilla cream covered with a thin layer of raspberry jam and sandwiched by two honey and coconut biscuits. Ooh...yummy! :) Custard Creams (right) is a traditional vanilla biscuit with thick luscious custard cream in between. Equally yummy! Although the UK-studied siblings claimed that Marks & Spencers Custard Creams were much nicer! Unfortunately we don't have them both side-by-side to make a comparison with!

Just a post for the biscuit tin and all those Cookie Monsters out there!

Not a fan of biscuits but do remind me of younger days when we used to buy foreign brand biscuits in SG when it was RM1 = SG1.

I remember those days too! We tried all the lovely imported biscuits even before they hit our Msian shores! Sigh...will we ever see that RM1=SG1 days again?!

Two things I love from Australia are Arnott's Monte Carlos and Cherry Ripe chocolates!

Another Monte Carlo fan! :) Did you know Cherry Ripes have enough alcohol in them to make you test positive on a breathalyzer test?!
