INTERNeX Canada: Culture shock

Have you ever noticed how many different pills are in general in the supermarkets? All types of supplements, vitamins, minerals….

If you want to have bigger muscles, you can. If you want to get tan artificially, you can. If your hair is weak you can buy something to make it stronger! For all kind of problems, Canadians have millions of different pills! It’s insane!

I mean in Spain you can find some places where you can buy this kind of supplements, but it’s not usually to have so many in a regular Supermarket.

Now I am kind of used to see all this kind of pills next to the bread and cookies…mm good combination sugar and pills to lose weight!

I have to recognize that I am becoming Canadian and I have my own armament of vitamins… Now the next important step to do is remind to take them!

Sometimes it’s a good idea to take them, for example now in winter with just a couple of hours of sunlight could be good to take some vitamin D. But always with common sense (that sense that is not common to have)

Have nice day,

Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory

Even the name sounds delicious. This store is amazing… but if you have a history of cavities or an upcoming dentist appointment – stay away from this place! Why? See for yourself.

This place could be your worst nightmare or your heaven on earth. If you’re like me… somedays it may be deadly to walk in here! I can be quite an impulsive shopper on an empty stomach. When I visited this store the other day, I walked out with an Apple Pie Caramel apple. It was absolutely divine! Everyone should visit this store while in Vancouver! They do have shops in other cities, but come on! Just look at all the goodies!

Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory is an international franchisor, confectionery manufacturer and retail operator in the United States, Canada and the United Arab Emirates. The Company is based in the charming old-west town of Durango located on the western slope of the Rocky Mountains in southwestern Colorado. From its 53,000 square foot factory, the Company manufactures an extensive line of premium chocolate candies and other confectionery products to supply its many franchise locations, delivered fresh by its fleet of refrigerated trucks.

The factory typically produces approximately 300 chocolate candies and other confectionery products, using proprietary recipes developed primarily by its master candy maker. These products include many varieties of clusters, caramels, creams, meltaways, truffles and molded chocolates. Individual stores prepare a variety of caramel and candy apples, fudge, chocolate items and confections in full view of the customer using traditional cooking utensils such as copper kettles on gas-fired stoves and marble slab cooling tables.

Neat huh? I’ll leave you with a few more pictures. If you would like to visit their website, click here! The location I visited was at 1017 Robson Street. They even had cute little piggy candy apples. They also serve fudge, ice cream and truffles. If you’re good you’ll show up just in time for samples 😉 …

That’s all for now guys! Gotta jet, I’m hungry…
