|Macarons at Galeries Lafayette|
Today though I had some time, and I thought 'why not?'. I was passing and I suddenly remembered a French guy in my German class saying that a lot of the French expats go there to buy really expensive yoghurt. What? Food hall? Expensive yoghurt? Why, doesn't that sound like it might be just like the KaDeWe?
Oh. My. God. It's lovely! It's smaller than the food hall in the KaDeWe, but it's beautifully, darkly lit, and it's like all the products you could ever need but in lovely French packaging! Oh to be a French expat with lots & lots of money! Not that they aren't catering for the Germans and the Brits. There are a selection of Cadbury's biscuits for the Brits and 5KG jars of Nutella for the Germans. (Why would you buy so much that you can barely lift it?). Oh and of course, the Americans haven't been forgotten: yup, they've shipped in more of that Fluff for you guys, ha, ha, ha! (scroll down for the photos)
|Pretty cakes: I want to roll around in there with you with my mouth open.|
|I have very little use for these, but I just want to take them home, line them up and look at them anyway.|
|These can stay on the shelf though...|
|I want my peas to have a gold lid!|
|Beluga Linsen: One of life's essentials, surely???|
|I can't even imagine trying to explain to Stevie that I spent 40 euros on a tub of Nutella.|
|Nuts: I've run out of photos.|
