I think this is a great idea. My dad was e-mail pals with a man from Australia, and he sent us a bunch of candies and such that we don't have in the US. It was so cool! Does anyone know if they still have those chocolate gummi-type candies in Australia? I think they were called Allens...and they looked like little people.

genius idea! i'm always looking for US stuff! ok...

I would love some Kool-Aid [unsweetened] to dye yarn with.

I'm in the UK so if anyone would like something equally light to post from here (chocolates, sweeties, etc) in exchange for sending me Kool-Aid let me know Smiley

violet i happen to have several packets of kool-aid that i brought over from the us to the uk recently. i wanted to try using it as smelly paint, but seems the smell fades in time so it's not gonna help me. i have several different flavours, which were you looking for?

teamwang I did not know that the UK had ritter sport!  I can find it every once in awhile here in Texas but not very often.  I am not a big chocolate fan but I am in love with the little bitty ritter sport assortments.

I was wondering what the US has that the rest of you do not.  I wa really surprised by the kool aid!

I looove ketchup pringles, but I can't find them outside of Canada.

I also regret not buying a fake pashmina scarf in Italy the last time I was there during the winter.  I love those things.

I'll be leaving for Japan soon.  Anyone need something from there?

oh man, the crisps/chips here are TO DIE FOR! they have the best flavours, none of that stupid ranch or sour cream/chive, we have tandoori and worcester and thai sweet chili!!! i'm sure i've also seen ketchup flavour in the market as well.
selenium -  i'd literally buy you anything you want from the uk in trade for japanese goodies!!!!! especially domo-kun and san-x stuff. mmmm...japanese pop culture!
