Secret Santa Reveal + Snacks FailDecember 30, 2010
Before I show off all the goodies I got from my Secret Santa, I want to first thank Jessy of The Little Dust Princess for organizing the first annual Petite Secret Santa Gift Exchange. She was so helpful in sending out various reminders (so very helpful to me, who can't remember anything). Thank you Jessy!
I drew Sydney from Petite Little Girl and my Secret Santa was Elaine from Curls and Pearls. We were supposed to keep our gifts between $15-$25 but I feel like Elaine really outdid herself. I loved everything. Thank you!
The gifts in all their glory - the gloves arrived first, followed by the box of goodies.
Now that I got the happy content out of the way, I would like to vent publicly. I had the worst luck picking out snacks here in LA....and I don't know why. I was so excited when I saw the Hey Song Shake Jello Drink Thing in 99 Ranch and was even more excited by the Pineapple Danish Bun I found in the bakery section. When I returned to the hotel I couldn't wait to tear into them...except I was sorely disappointed.
The jello drink thing is in essence just gelatinous goo and carbonated artificial fruit flavor water in a can. Completely flavorless...I don't know why I think it would taste more like jello than unflavored gelatin and faintly flavored seltzer water. The pineapple danish bun was more salty than sweet...which is not what I was looking for.
