We love summer here at Flourish. The sun on our backs, the long gentle evenings, the warm breeze floating in off the Old Street tarmac. But what we really love about the summertime is when our friends and colleagues bring us biscuits galore from their summer hols. Like these, all the way from Budapest and France. Cheers Kath G, and the Scene 2 boys!
Here’s a veritable medley of treats from Guy T’s Greek week, Claire’s Sri Lankan adventure and Guy C’s family trip to semi-sunny Spain.more
Our latest influx of treats came courtesy of a young Taiwanese lady we met recently called Nana Ho. Nana brought us a range of savoury Eastern delicacies, including these fish-flavoured crisps which polarised the office pretty much down the middle. Kind of like Marmite, in a packet.more
More biscuits in our tin from around the globe. American delicacies Teddy Grahams and Flipz landed courtesy of Adam, and the sweet milky chocolate ones at the front came back from Norway with Trine. And Dave found possibly the world’s only lime-based biscuits in Brazil, bringing them back to the office along with their strawberry counterparts.more
Thanks to Pete for the posh Cornish biscuits, Luke for the delicious Toblerone and Kath for bringing us some Nutter Butter delights all the way from Pittsburgh.more
Biscuits: the whole world loves them. And everywhere we go – which this year hasn’t left many countries untouched – we bring some back to be manhandled by our office collectables before we get stuck into them. Above: Russia’s finest, thanks to Mark.
In deepest France, where donkeys wear pyjamas, Chris found us these delights.more
Our globetrotting colleagues returned with more bounty from their travels this week. Catherine brought us some Easter treats from the snow-dusted streets of Norway…
…and Luke furnished us with multi-functional Swiss chocolate from a weekend visit to Zurich.more
As everybody in the global marketing and events industry knows by now, we collect biscuits from our worldly travels, photograph King Ken and his friends playing with them, and put them on our blog. Here are some from Disneyland Florida.
Our friends Aga, Ania and Ola sent us these from Poland, with special instructions on which bits to lick first (insert own joke here: ___________________________________).more
A much-needed update – we’re well aware that our team’s global biscuit-gathering exploits haven’t been fully recognised.
Guy T and Claire returned from Madrid with these crumbly treats…more
A quick biscuit update following a couple of work trips to Singapore from Mr Brattle and a weekend in New York for Catherine who supplied a classic piece of Americana in the form of Reese’s Cup Cakes.more
We’ve been getting very lax at documenting the global confectionary that pours in to Flourish HQ – something we’ve vowed to change for the new year. As a reminder; anyone who travels for business of pleasure must return with local delicacies. So to kick off 2011 here’s King Ken enjoying some wonderful cookies from Cape Town courtesy of the very wonderful Kath Gifford (it’s great to have you back).more
Lots of biscuits of the world related news to catch up on (see the entire gallery here). First up these American lovelies from Trine’s trip to New York, we don’t have a toaster in the office so we enjoyed the Pop Tarts straight from the packet.
These chocolate jammy dodger type treats came from Stockholm courtesy of Matt who’s been spending a little bit of time there of late…
Trine again with more Scandinavian treats from Norway.
We’ve got the very wonderful Kath from Castrol to thank for the above, she kindly brought these back from her winter trip to the Canaries
Finally, big apologies to Catherine, her fine Rum Cakes from Antigua got eaten before they had a chance to be photographed.more
As we keep growing the number of exotic biscuits flooding into flourish towers increases, as such here’s an update of the last few weeks stack of goodies…
First up some shortbread goodness from Cornwall courtesy of Guy T (not great if we’re honest, no crispness and a slightly stale feeling).more
