Shopping Around the World

This month for Shopping Around the World, we are going to focus on go to desserts/treats.

You know for those days when you need a pick me up or you are feeling down, what is the one thing you go to for comfort?

I know we shouldn’t but we do.  We can all admit that from time to time, right?

Well this month is an easy one for mom.  Wait until you see!  Take it away mom –


When I think of go to comfort food as in dessert, I think of one thing.  Pepperidge Farm cakes.  I was introduced to Pepperidge Farm cakes when I was a young child.  It was something that we always kept in the freezer.  You know back in the day when you wanted people to drop in for visits  and they did unexpectedly – LOL.  These days, we don’t want anyone coming by unless you call weeks in advance and make an appointment.  Times have changed, right?  Well in the day, when unexpected friends dropped by my mom would get out the Pepperidge Farm cake, make a pot of coffee and visit.

These days, I still try to keep these in the freezer if not for just the memories they once brought to me.  Anytime you need some sugar comfort, cut you a slice off of the cake and enjoy a little time just being.  These Pepperidge Farm cakes come in a different variety – vanilla layer cake, red velvet cake, lemon layer cake, key lime cake, coconut layer cake, chocolate fudge layer cake and this one – rich golden layer cake.  And personally, the golden layer and key lime cakes are my all time favorites – LOL.

And the best thing about these cakes – they are cheap.  Really on average they are about $4.00 a cake.  BUT you can find them on sale two for $5.00!  Now can you make two cakes that cheap?  So pardon me my friends, this cake in the picture was opened last weekend.  It’s calling my name to be finished.  The next time you are in your local market, see if you can find one of these and try them.  You won’t regret it.

Score for the Piggy!

Score for me!  The Easter bun-bun didn’t forget about my love for peeps.  The Easter bun-bun brought me not necessarily a “Peep” product but something similar and look at it – it’s shaped like something I know but I can’t put my snout on it – snorts and rolls with piggy laughter.

It’s a piggy vanilla marshmallow like peep thing.  I was so thrilled to have found it in the bottom of my big bucket.  And trust me my friends.  It was delicious!  Of course, I ate it’s head off first.  What?  Mom was holding his feet – snorts.

And yes – I ate the whole thing.  Daddy couldn’t understand why I was running around the Hotel Thompson afterwards.  Maybe it was all of that sugar sweet daddy of mine.  Snorts – thankfully there wasn’t anyone else here when I devoured my little friend.  Have you ever seen anything so cute?  Squeals!
