mC what does "Sajnos nem nyert" mean? It's on the inside of the Sport bar wrapper and I'm wondering if it's the Hungarian version of the gold ticket to Willy Wonka's. :lol:

Almost :lol: see, now there's this offer that you can win another Sport bar with the wrapping... Yours however says "Sorry, you didn't win"
Bad luck... ;)

Boterwafels (or boterwafeltjes) is correct ;)

Oh, I'm glad they finally arrived, Con. I did type up a little note, then totally forgot to enclose it and only remembered after it was all sealed up.

I'm pretty sure you have Tic Tacs in Canada! :lol:

Be interested to know what you think about the Vegan ones - the fruit jellys.

I like the fruit jellys the best (goes and gets some..)

I have not seen those flavours of Tics Tacs, but does not mean we don't have them. :)

The rhubarb and cream ones are definitely different. :drool:

Custard, darling. Rhubarb and Custard. The others were Strawberry & Cream.

At least I think I sent you S&C as well. :?

Toothie, got your package today! :D Thank you very much! I especially like the winegums - we used to eat these at primary school, it was a real fashion, haven't seen them ever since :D
