Last Spring, I took a truly wonderful vacation to London and Paris. As you may remember, I visited a great many patisseries, cupcake shops and candy stores. But I also made sure to go to as many local gourmet food shops as possible - as I am always on the lookout for pretty sprinkles and baking supplies to add to my collection. So, while I was in Paris, I was over-joyed to discover this incredible line of French sprinkles!
Yes, they were a "bit" pricey, were a major pain to schlep back to the U.S. in my carry-on luggage and caused a hold up at Customs - but they were definitely worth it. And then, just last week, I was shopping at my local HomeGoods when I spied these...
Hmmm...the bottle on the left is one that I brought back from Paris and the one on the right is from Homegoods. They look exactly the same, don't they? And do you know why?
Because they are!!!!
And that, my friends, is why I LOVE Homegoods.
