I’d read about Kex, a Swedish candy bar, in a travel magazine before my trip to Scandinavia with Zan. So, I knew when I saw it to give it a try. Supposedly they were originally made as a snack to take on ski trips. Sounds Scandinavian enough.
Kex is a chocolate-covered wafer; it tastes delicious, but almost exactly like a Kit Kat, so nothing unusual. I can definitely understand why Kex is popular in Sweden!
My good friend Jenna, creator of the blog Slice of Sparkle, came to visit me last month! And since she wrote two awesome posts about her visit, I am being lazy today and just presenting them to you here rather than writing my own post.
Hawaii recap part one here, Hawaii recap part two here.
Jenna is awesome, has a super fun blog and was an amazing guest. Hope she comes back soon.
When Kiyo and I were flying back to New York City from Montego Bay, Jamaica, we had a layover in Kingston. It was a long layover, so we had to get some food. I already wrote about one of the weird things we ate (see that post here). We also split a dish from Island Grill.
For a fast food restaurant, it was pretty good. They served traditional Jamaican food: rice and peas (beans), festival (fried dough) and chicken. It was unexciting and slightly bland, but ok for a cheap airport option. It certainly was more fresh and healthy than McDonald’s or other, larger fast food chains!
