Dreams of London

Today was the best day of my life. (You will probably eventually discover that I have many best days of my life's) While in the UK over the summer I came to love many new things, one of these things were caramel digestives. Caramel digestives are a "biscuit with caramel covered in milk chocolate"... so good. I will admit that that name "digestives" is not too appealing especially for a cookie, but do not let this small detail scare you away. Once you try them you will be hooked, I promise. No matter where we were in a hostel, on a bus, a walk in Hyde Park, or in our flat we seemed to have a pack handy. In London my roomies Mandie, Jenny, and I would eat approximately a pack a day. Seriously. I don't know why I didn't come home larger than I did. I brought a pack home and shared some with my family and then put the rest in my room in a safe place. One day I decided I would savor one of these sacred cookies and I came to find that there was only one left. I immediately knew the culprit who had eaten several on the car ride home from the airport... KORTNI! I went into her room and accused her of eating all my cookies. She responded very calmly with "what? I left one for you!". Unbelievable. I finished of the last one before anyone else could get their hands on it. Ever since that day I searched high and low for these cookies but have only come across the plain chocolate ones which are not comparable to the caramel ones. Today while in Salt Lake I was pulling out of a parking lot and eyed a little shop called The London Market, I immediately headed in that direction. To my greatest surprise they had them! In the UK they usually cost around one pound which is a little less than two dollars. Here they were seven dollars but that didn't stop me, I still bought them. I am very satisfied with my purchase and I can't wait to eat them! If you ever come across a pack of these buy them and don't forget to pick up a pack for me!
