A few years back, I took a trip off the beaten path and found myself in the Canary Islands off the coast of North Africa in the Atlantic. The islands belong to Spain so there were lots of tourists from England, Germany and other European countries. I dug these photos up from my scrapbook to share with you here on my blog. I’m pretty sure that these wouldn’t make it in the American markets. What do you think of these wrappers?
I was floored when I found these ‘Filipinos’ sitting on the shelf. On the back it says, ‘Try Filipinos after one hour in the fridge’!
I was more upset with this wrapper, Choco Conquitos, which I actually bought. I don’t remember if I liked the chocolate. That’s besides the point. What’s with this cartooned mascot? No, this would never work in America!
These baby bottles filled with liquor, although not chocolate bar wrappers, were strange as well. Travelling has always been a passion for me. I love to experience local foods and culture. Even a trip to a small supermarket can be a memorable experience.
