Where Globalism Stops

Globalization has made it harder and harder to bring unique gifts from France to friends and family. Laduree macarons? Available in the US now. Mariage Freres tea? High-end gourmet shops carry it. Diptyque candles? The company is now owned by Americans. So I was tickled to find something today at Franprix that you’d never find in the States: Montelimar Nougat ice cream! Now if I could just figure out how to transport it…

    I am SO happy to see this picture!!! When my husband and I were living in France, we were addicted to Franprix generic brand ice cream. It was notably delicious, almost like a gelato, and I think was only 1 euro. I miss it so much!!!!

    p.s. there are still plenty of things I adore in France that I can’t get here. ;-)
