Shopping for candy in the health food store sounds like fun!  We buy the most amazing vegan chocolate chips from the health food store.  Can you buy Clif Bars in Australia?  I'm pretty sure they are vegan.  They are on the list of American treats, but I'm not sure how accurate the list is.

This sounds tempting. Only problem is I most things I would receive and send out would probably melt. It's 110 degrees right now and will only get hotter Sad I'll think about it for the hardier stuff though.
