Treats from Newfoundland, Canada

Special Surprise Treats from Blogger Friend Trupti of The Spice Who Loved Me

Cloudberry Syrup, Blueberry, Lingonberry and Cloudberry Spreads, Cream Biscuits and Ginger Snaps ~Treats from Newfoundland, Canada

We recently received a gift package from dear Trupti of gorgeous food blog “The Spice Who Loved Me”. In her email, she mentioned that she wanted to share her hometown favorites with us in appreciation of Mahanandi. I was surprised, elated and then hesitated to accept. But she insisted. How can I say no to such affectionate soul.

All the items were very carefully packed to withstand several days of journey through the postal system. The package and the items also revealed Trupti’s passion for food and food blogging.

The treats are all locally prepared and special to Newfoundland region, she mentioned. We tried everything and they were all delicious. In fact these nourishing treats saved us two weeks ago when we were recovering from a severe case of flu. Both Vijay and I greatly enjoyed this special surprise gift.

Thanks very much Trupti for this nice gesture, it meant a lot to us!

  3. Inji, you crack me up always. :)
    I sincerely wish you live near by, so that I can share all treats with you.

    Cloudberry preserve definitely gets my vote. It really is some treat, quite expensive also, I read on the Internet. Trupti is very generous!
