Munching on Marks and Spencer.

I can't say I'm a Marks & Spencer fan, but you'd be surprised at how much M&S stuff I have in my closet. Blame my Mum for that - she loves the brand so much. The store she frequents (not sure if it's the Leyton or the Hackney outlet in East London) even gave her an M&S credit card without having to go through the application process.

But if there's one thing I really love about M&S, it's their food! The desserts, to be exact. It's always a treat when Mum brings home Marks & Spencer munchies. I know the M&S stores in the Metro also sell food stuff, but their offering is very limited. Not like the ones they have in London.

Chocolate goodness!
These chocolates are absolutely good. Yue loves them a lot. Not exactly because of their taste.

Edible play money.
But because they are toys for him.
Speaking of toys, this one is my most favorite among our loot of M&S treats.

My cookie jar reeks of cuteness!
It's a cookie tin slash music box. It's not a box, of course. But I guess you understand what I mean. Wind it up at the bottom and that middle part (the one with the trees) rotates while playing Winter Wonderland. 

White chocolate chips.
Inside are two bags of cookies - white chocolate chip cookies. So good I can finish a bag in one sitting. Oh, the calories! The irony of M&S stores - they sell clothing and food together. Bad, bad combination. :)

Sorry if it took me awhile to respond. Was not feeling too good since last night (see my blood pressure entry), and I'm catching up on some much needed rest. :)
