I don’t know about you, but I was sad when World Market closed its stores in the metro. You know who was more sad? Our residential Easter Bunny, because no longer could she easily cram baskets with Milka bars, Dark Toblerone, and tooth-cementing ginger chews. If you think the store is just about teak tables, flowy scarves, and carved wooden giraffes, maybe you never made it to the back of the store where there was a bazaar of international and far-flung eats.
But good news bunnies, World Market is back with two stores, one in Roseville and the other in Bloomington. Wonder why I’m so excited? Here’s what I found yesterday:
San Pellegrino Chinotto. A super bitter citrus drink that freaks you out, then keeps you coming back for more. Like Campari.
Jammie Dodgers. The best name ever for jam-filled cookies and the most fun thing to say with a fake British accent.
SPAM flavored macadamia nuts. I’m putting these on my desk.
