These are a few of my favorite Czech things...

I'm not always face-first into the pastries--those elegant, inspiring, stuff-that-dreams-are-made-of pastries.

Really, I'm not.

Here are some of my other favorite Czech things. Don't be shocked, but they're not ALL food related.

Turns out I notice other things too, especially practical things that make so much utilitarian sense (to me anyway).  It's probably creepy to go from talking food straight into talking bathroom marvels, but, well, that's me!  Check this out...

Genius.

Forget low-flow toilets, just choose small or large. Yep, that's what it means.
Simple.
Efficient.
Love it.

Today I saw the perfect TP solution for bar bathrooms.  I've never seen this before, have you?

It's like a tissue dispenser, but for TP.  I'll give you a moment to admire it--I did.

Women, I know you've gotta be with me on this one.  How many times have you gone into a bar bathroom and all the toilet paper is strewn across that nasty floor?  With this, no one can drop it or unravel half the roll onto the wet floor with one careless tug.  Who knew there could be a world where TP stayed dry?                                                                                                                                                                         This makes me ridiculously happy!
And the sugar dispensers.  No little flap to steam shut and it usually gives me a perfect teaspoonful.                                                                                                   I also adore the design of the light switches, but I think it's just a me thing.



Okay, okay, you're not here so I can geek-out over toilet flushing and hand driers I'm going to throw in a couple of snacks too.

I wish I could get this pear-flavored sparkling water at home.  I'd buy it by the case!

Found this great candy bar too.  Papitas.  Most of the candy is unimpressive - wafer sandwich-y stuff - but this one stood out.

It's a buttery cookie base with a thin layer of soft caramel topped with a layer of milk chocolate and dotted with tiny chocolate candies.

Don't be fooled, these aren't exactly M&M's.  Happily, the chocolate inside the THIN candy shell is soft.

One bite and I wanted a lifetime supply, but I settled for six. 



Alright, I think I'm done.

Let's get back to the cake and cream, already!
