This month my Foodie Penpals parcel came from the lovely Marjan all the way over in The Netherlands! I always love receiving my parcel from overseas as it means I get to try to local foods that I probably wouldn’t get the chance to otherwise.
The parcel made me smile straight away when I opened it to this gorgeous postcard with a glimpse of The Netherlands. I have visited a few times and I forgot how beautiful it was. I’ve also never tried any regional foods from there!
First up were these cheese biscuits – quite like ones we get over here. Still, yummy and very moreish – kind of like the taste of cheese straws.
Next up, ‘Old Amsterdam’ cheese. I haven’t gotten around to trying it yet but I’m sure it’ll be delicious – I love cheese!
Next up, these mini Easter eggs, of four different flavours – milk, dark, white & mocha. Also very moreish and hubby & I polished off the lot in one sitting! I thought they were nicer than the ones we get over here…
