... discovering that something you thought had disappeared without your noticing it isn't actually gone after all. :-)
This is actually really stupid, but that's how it goes. You Scandinavians reading this, you know Lakrisal, right? Mmmm, Lakrisal ... !! I hadn't eaten that stuff for ages, and I hadn't even thought about it, but then suddenly out of the blue I remembered it a couple of weeks ago. And I wanted to get some of it, but I couldn't find it in the candy aisle in my grocery store. There wasn't even an empty place on the shelf ... they just didn't have it. :-o So I figured that OK, I'll be going on a plane soon, they'll have it in the tax free store, right? Wrong! Remember those giant cardboard versions, with ten of the rolls inside them? I thought I might buy one of those, cause then I'd obviously be set up for a good long while. :-) But they didn't have them. :-( So I started thinking that maybe they've gone out of production. :-o That would have been so sad! That might have meant that I'd eaten one for the last time and I didn't even know it. And they're so tasty and unique ... !!
So I was sad about that, but then yesterday, guess what happened. I was at Narvesen (the biggest chain of newsagents in Norway) and even though I wasn't really thinking about the Lakrisal any more (yeah, my wounds heal quickly) it suddenly flashed into my mind that I should look for it. And behold ... !!
Yay! When I got home I finally got around to checking Malaco's website, and sure enough, there it is. So I could have saved myself some grief there. :-) Take a look, they have such an impressive array of candy under 'other selections' ... o_O
Mmmm, Lakrisal ... !! :-D
