For the first time ever I have seen Tootsie Rolls at a regular grocery store. Hooray!!!

You can sometimes find small speciality shops selling American candy (at a price that makes you wonder if purchasing a return ticket to USA is better value). Well, today at one of Coventry's largest supermarkets I found something new amongst the Hershey's and Reese's....a favourite...Tootsie Rolls. When you are an American living in England that calls for a photo for your blog (as well as small purchase). What you see is about 1/10th of very long shelves dedicated to the sweet tooth. Those candy bars are called 'sweets' over here. Quaint :).
Tomorrow is the first day of the Ryder Cup golf tournament (USA vs Europe) taking place in Chicago, USA. I plan to be glued to the TV for the duration (eating Tootsie Rolls) hoping that Europe retain the Cup. (I know, I can hardly believe that I said that.) Try and watch some of it, people. A great tournament!
