Shopping in Europe
I love shopping in new stores. It’s amazing how seeing a grocery store somewhere can help you better experience the culture. I remember the first time I came to Europe, going in a grocery store was so strange. I mean there were quail eggs for sale! How weird! Now, after traveling for so long I see quail eggs, shrimp, or white asparagus and I don’t think anything of it!
I also love how in different places the things you find in the stores change.

You get the picture. So I decided it was time to do a post on one of my all time favorite European grocery stores, Lidl.
This is Lidl. The first time I ever saw I Lidl from the outside -in the dark- I thought it was a toystore. Now I know better, I know it is the place to buy my favorite chocolates, mint tea, baguettes, olive spread cheese, and of course the best gaspacha olives!
-Lidle started in Germany in the 1930’s
-It is one of the largest grocery retailers in Europe
-Lidl provides the highest quality with lowest costs (and it shows)
They also have such a good selection of cheese. From the classic and always good gouda, to the trieno. The trieno is a mix of cow, goat, and sheep cheese all in one. It sounds scary to try, but if you are brave enough, you won’t regret it!
This is gaseosa, start and you won’t be able to stop! A sugar free light refreshing drink with a light citrus flavor. It isn’t too sweet or overpowering, it is my favorite thing to drink! Sorry water… 😉
I could go on and on about all the things I love about Lidl, there is just so much! I used to never like going grocery shopping, I didn’t know what I was missing! It is so much fun shopping in Lidl, I know you will love it too.
