We could do it in June, warn folks about mailing chocolate (melting possible), and plan on a winter version too!  Smiley

Hmmm.... would gummies be okay in a hot summer shipment?


Also;  June is winter in Australia and I'm sure we'd have Aussie swappers.  I'm not sure this is a problem that could be "fixed" completely in an international swap, and the whole point of this one would be to go international, right?  Maybe we just need to go for it and trust people to use common sense choosing which snacks to ship?  Anyway, you tell me when it starts and I'll be there!

I've done the My Country Doesn't Have That swaps in all weather, and never had a problem with melted chocolate! Smiley

Good point!  No matter what, the chocolate will get hot SOMEWHERE on the planet.  And, yes, I think the whole point is to go international.  I bet gummies would fare better than chocolate. 


I was browsing my favorite junk food and I'm wondering if it is available outside the U.S.  Here is the list:

Moon Pies
burnt peanuts
Maple Nut Goodies (mmmm......)
Mounds
Almond Joy
York Peppermint Patties
Sun Chips (my favorite is Harvest Cheddar)
circus peanuts (they're orange marshmallowish things in the shape of peanuts)
PayDay
cajun seasoned trail mix
wasabi flavored almonds

Also, what about beef jerky?  Does it taste the same or different in other countries?  Does anyone else care to find out?

I don't think it's allowed to send Kinder eggs to USA... Might want to check other customs rules for sending edibles too.

As far as snacks go... Sweden and Scandinavia is good for licorice, salty licorice and milk chocolate. Or perhaps some "wild" chips... Dried moose or reindeer meat I think.

I am SO in for this if it happens!  I'm in the US in Seattle, and some regional treats we have in the northwest include Idaho Spuds (a candy), Applets and Cotlets (Fruit jellies), Almond Roca (A butter toffee treat), Chehalis Mints (butter mints, nom), Mountain Candy bars, etc.  I think root beer flavored candies would be unique in places that aren't the US.

My husband and I both really adore foreign treats and sweets.  WOOT!

I'm from Indiana in the US and I haven't heard of any of those treats, except Idaho Spuds.  I only discovered the spuds recently.

The US/UK swap gallery is full of prepackaged treats, so I guess customs didn't stop any of those from going through.  I got on the U.S. customs website.  It was VERY confusing.  I have no idea where to find a list of accepted and prohibited food items.   Undecided

Probably anything that is commercially packaged and is strictly "food" wouldn't have any problems, either direction.  (I think)
