My M&S food haul

EN

Apart having a lunch along with Jessy & Yak Man for our blogmeet here, we also did a quick stroll (because it was cold) through the shopping area of The Hague and this is where I first time spot a Mark and Spencer in my country! My heart skipped a beat as I really love M&S. Especially their (a bit overpriced) food section.

You all think I am overreacting but please hear me out. M&S has left my country, the Netherlands 10 years ago and I usually go to the UK or Hong Kong for all the M&S needs. So to see that the M&S has returned I was thrilled!

I begged the girls to have a quick look inside and so we did and conquered some tea’s and snacks!
M&S has pricier food but their food is super yummy! And if you like UK food like me then you know it's worth it.

Naast het lunchen met Jessy & Yak Man voor onze blogmeet hier, hebben we ook een snelle wandeling (want het was koud) gedaan door de winkelstraten van Den Haag en dit is waar ik Mark en Spencer tegemoet kwam! Mijn hart maakte een sprongetje want ik ben mega dol op M&S! Vooral hun (een beetje duur) etenswaren zijn mijn favoriet.

Ja hoor, wat is er nou zo bijzonder aan die Mark en Spencer denken jullie, maar luister: we hadden heel lang geleden M&S gehad in Nederland maar de winkelketen verdween helaas dus voor al mijn M&S behoeften moest ik naar UK of Hong Kong toe. Dus om te zien dat de M&S is teruggekeerd was ik héél blij!

Ik smeekte de meisjes of we een snelle boodschap konden maken en dat deden we gelukkig en we kwamen buiten met een tas lekkere hapjes en thee c: Als je net als ik dol ben op Engelse eten dan is M&S wel iets voor jou!

Zien wat ik allemaal heb gekocht? Scroll naar beneden!

1. Jasmine green tea 2. pure peppermint tea 3. strawberry & cream drops 4. dark chocolate with honey and nougat 5. Scotch pancakes

This is actually a present from Jessy c: She sure kept her pokerface up when we walked through the Mark and Spencer shop! Thank you!

This must taste like Toblerone. I hope.


The next morning:
The 
Scotch pancakes! 
I went a bit to enthusiastic with the first batch. Blame my growling stomach...

And boy, these Scotch pancakes were super tasty! I also spread some butter + apple syrup on top of it but since the pancakes itself is sweet already I think I preferred it without the syrup c:

  1. It's so funny to me seeing pancakes being made in a toaster! I've only done it with waffles haha, but now that I think about it I guess it works out :P

    The teas and strawberry and cream drops packaging is so pretty. I can imagine your excitement with M&S, all their store branded packaging is really simple and cute.

  6. I love the packaging of the tea! Mmmm all that candy.. I've gotten packaged foods like pancakes before, but I've always eaten them straight out of the bag. Next time I'll try toasting them like you have and maybe they'll taste more fresh :) I'll be careful not to burn them, or else the fire alarm in my dorm will go off hahah -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's

  15. The packaging of the tea and sweets is sooo cute! It would look great in an open shelf kitchen :) Lucky that you have a M&S back again. I remember the first time we visited London, we bought some food at M&S to have a picnic at Hyde Park, such a nice memory! :)
