|7 little Yowies|
So there was Mom at the grocery store - she had gone to buy some packing boxes and was waiting in line to check out when she happened to glance at the candy display (you know - the ones that always try to tempt you while you wait !!!!) Well Mom suddenly did a double take and couldn't believe her eyes - right there in front of her was a box of YOWIES.
Now you are probably thinking - what the dog is a Yowie? Well they are something Mom to use to buy all the time when she lived back home in Australia - they are kind of like a chocolate egg (or a Kinder Surprise) with a little collectable inside. Mom picked one up to check it really was a Yowie and before you could blink - she grabbed the entire box!!!
Now Mom is a great believer in 'signs' those little clues in life that tell us we are on the right path and she took finding these as a sign. Not only did she find the Yowies - she also noticed they are distributed here in the USA by a company in St Augustine, Florida - a town Mom loves and it is only half an hour from where we will be living and if that wasn't enough - the first one she opened had a wombat inside it!!! (They contain endangered animals from all over the world).
Oh - we should explain about the Yowie - it is one of several names given to a mythical hominid creature reputed to live in the Australian wilderness. The creature has its roots in Aboriginal mythology.
|No fun Mom - we can't eat these!|

|What the DOG is that !|
|It's a wombat!!!!!!!|
We burst out laughing at the caption... What the DOG is that!ReplyDelete
Mommy never saw these Wowies before, but she will keep a look out for them. She thinks it's neat there is a animal figurine inside them.

Oh how great! A wombat! and that is sure a lucky sign! ... when they sell that yowies in the US does it mean that the kinder surprises are allowed now too?ReplyDelete
Oh for sure, everything is going to go well for you in Florida now.ReplyDelete

They are environmentally friendly, globally conscious, and socially responsible.
That's fantastic. First of all, we love wombats! SHE used to send those to a sister in Virginia.....but there always seemed to be a Potato Cod in them. So she has the biggest collection of Potato Cod in the world.ReplyDelete
Wow! What fun!ReplyDelete
Wow, I thought that they couldn't sell Kinder Eggs in the US because the FDA wouldn't allow you to have something inedible hidden in food. We all think that is kind of funny here in Canada.ReplyDelete
What a nice surprise for your mom and a yummy one!ReplyDelete
Love ya lots♥

My mom was the same way about stuff when she lived in Germany.ReplyDelete
We have never seen Yowies here, but Mom said she is going to look for them too. That wombat is kind of cute in an odd sort of way:)ReplyDelete

My peep LOVED those when she was little... But, guess what.... They don't sell them here in Australia any more... :(ReplyDelete
What a fun idea!ReplyDelete
That is so cool! It's a sign for sure!ReplyDelete
Our mom saw a video of a baby wombat getting tummy rubs and thought it was just the cutest thing ever. Umm... yeah, OK.
Definitely a sign! The world is so much smaller today and we can find things from all over, especially here we have diversity! Love DollyReplyDelete
