Sweet like vanilla

How beautiful is this packaging? Vanilla sugar bought in Denmark. I don't like the English vanilla sugar so much, so I usually buy some in Denmark. It always surprises me how there can be 'big' differences in little things like this between the two countries...

 It is totally retro! I really don't think it has changed in many years. And in my book that is a good thing. If it ain't broke, why fix it? I wish more companies would stick with 'the classics'.

 I don't know if you can tell, but the word on the paper bag isn't just printed on it. It is actually letterpressed onto it! So beautiful.

Are you surprised that I told Tony 'don't throw that packaging in the bin!'..? He wasn't surprised. He gave that little smile, which says 'I know you so well, I saw this one coming' and that he thinks I'm kinda silly but also kinda cute. ;-)

What is vanilla sugar? Is it sugar favored with vanilla? I've never heard of it before.

What?! Never heard of vanilla sugar?

But yes, it is sugar with vanilla flavour. It is used in baking. :-)
