Squirrel Brand Nuts

David is pouring them out of the cans in the studio.

OAP is pouring them out of the cans in her kitchen.

What's the difference?

They look like nice quality nuts.

 

The snack type stuff like Squirrel Brand and Germack I find very, very appealing. Thank god I can’t order them. We have nothing quite like this in the UK. Of course we have luxury snacks but I can’t find the equivalent. I can’t find matches for the Prindables apples Or those stuffed chocolate pretzels either. 
There was a presentation earlier this week, might have been Gourmet Holibobs, with “Turtle Gophers”. OMG they looked amazing. I’m not sure what the turtle thing is all about, that concept doesn’t exist here but my oh my they looked bloody gorgeous. 
Of course being a European has its advantages. For my birthday in April I was sent a box Leonidas fresh cream Belgian chocolates. I spent a fair bit of time in Brussels a few years ago and Leonidas was a highlight. I took a pic of the lovely presentation.

They better be for that price.  Unfortunately I bet the nuts get broken during shipping.  

Those Tovolo spatulas are calling my name.  Not a bad price.  Wonder if amazon has them or similar?

Lovely packaging by Leonidas.   

A lot of the mainstream chocolate brands in the U.S. these days provide pretty watered down chocolate candies. 

Chocolate colored?  Yes.  Truly rich in chocolate flavor?  Eh, more sugary than anything else.

As a child, many moons ago, I spent a summer in London and recall the chocolate was especially delicious there.  I don't recall if the different brands I had were imported from Belgium or were domestically produced.

Those turtle gophers do look delish, but the name turns me off.

@Burly Turtles are supposed to have the nuts arranged so after the caramel and chocolate is poured over, it resembles a turtle. I think the hand-made chocolate shops still try to do that. Mass produced ones seem to have lost that feature.

I think I have some spatulas by that brand held up very well, I think I got them at TJMHG plex

I remember eating chocolate in London and even the same brands we have here (like Cadbury) are SOOOOO much better there. I stocked up at the airport on the way home.

 

Just wanted to add - DARN you people! Had to go look at the Squirrel Brand nuts. Fortunately, they were all gone at QVC, so I ordered the same thing in individual bags at Amazon for less than $9. They didn't have one of the three, but I am sure the smaller amounts will be fine and will be here tomorrow!

It looks like she posted that bathing suit picture on a personal Instagram page called @sandeverywherefamily. But when I went there, I didn't see the picture.

See’s Candy from California is delicious. Very rich chocolate. The cream centers are to die for, the nuts and chews are delicious too. Their fudge. Oh gads. They aren’t cheap but they are like some chocolates I’ve had in NYC where they are $3 a piece or more.

My first reaction to Ginger in that outfit was “what?  She wore that on air?????!!!!!”   Then I looked at the leggings.  Seems to me that is what most of the younger women are wearing as pants these days.  Q’s attempt to get a younger market???   Yeah, I know, they are not watching TV.

The top is way too casual.  Looks like workout wear.

And Puss is prepared to do the graveyard shift which GK would rightly consider to be a major step down after “prime time”. 
 

I bet GP will do a shift any time if it means getting her big face on the telly...


Ring-Ring Ring-Ring

GP: “Hello, Ginger Puss speakin’”

Producer: Hi Puss, it’s your producer here, listen we have a little prob...”

GP: “What time do ya want me?”

Producer: “Well that’s the problem it’s a late...”

GP: “No problem! I’m a Cali gurl remember? What’s the show?”

Producer: “Fashion clearance”

GP: “Shit. Model?”

Producer: “New girl. Plus size”

GP: “No problem, I’ll make it work. You still with the girlfriend?”

Producer: “Yes we’re planning to get....”

GP: “Bye.”

Oh, this Peace Love World piece of work.

Mary rolled up her denim jacket sleeves, exposing very visible, white seams on the inside.  Sloppy, with horrible exercise leggings to top off the travesty of fashion she is trying to perpetuate.

She is practically crying that she wants to hug all of the models and misses Alina so much.  I think the only time I ever hugged anybody at a job was when I was leaving it, after the farewell cake and before I was out the door for good. Well, at least it wasn't part of the job description as it seems to be at QVC.

Mary is going on and on about how Alina's awkward or blah sentiments are going to give us positivity and help us get through this new normal.  A couple of red threads glaring at me from a t-shirt are not going to do that. More like the promise of a viable vaccine or something similar in the works.

Back in my day, when we had to walk up the hill backwards to high school, we wore our leggings with a top long enough to cover all of our bits and pieces.

Today, I see girls tucking their shirts in the front of them. Ginger Puss favors the back tuck. Some even just wear short shirts with leggings.

To me, it goes beyond trying to look sexy into blatant advertising. But then again, I am not a hip, happenin' Cali girl like GP, so what do I know.

Tova still has the purple hands. And the two-tone hair looks more garish than ever - I don’t understand her hair! However, she still dresses up up for her appearances and I applaud her for that. Such a nice contrast to the slobbification of most of the hosts and OAPs.

She has been streaking for several years, and it just seems to be getting more severe with every flip of the calendar.  Here's the 20th anniversary celebration at QVCUK (2015), which shows a less slightly less contrasted high-low hot mess.

Don’t these models know that when you put on a pair of pants, and you can’t pull most of it above your knees, the pants are too small.  Lumberjackie has a pair of very tight white pants that are totally bunched below her knees.  Yuck

Will someone please hire a speech coach for these hosts?  Last night Princess Jasmine/Lily Munster kept saying the TSV glasses were so impordant.  There’s no freaking D in important.
