We've just had these. Pineapple Lumps (very kiwi) and lic allsorts - my Mum's favourite!
It's her birthday today.
And I wish she were here to scoff them with all of us..
I don't buy much on TradeMe these days.. (feels like cheating, a bit! Too easy - . I like the thrill of the chase in the real world lol!!)
But today I typed in BROOCH MOTHER
and I bought this.
