Not really big on a sweet tooth myself, but this sounds like an intriguing swap to choose as my first one!!!

can you join this if you're a newbie?


I wonder what we have here in our little corner of the world that would entice my swap partner.

I don't have much of a sweet tooth myself, so if I get in, I hope someone will send me some savoury snacks (if you send cheese popcorn I will love you forever).  I would also LOVE some Lucky Charms which used to be readily available here when I was a child.  They're now only available in specialist shops here (WHY?) and they're super expensive.

I'm in the UK so we have Kinder Eggs like in the picture but I believe they're illegal in the US.  It's a shame cos they're sooo nice.

I think its cuz the toys are so small?  A choking hazard, but its stupid cuz I read somewhere that someone was going to the states and were about to get the kinder eggs confiscated, so they ate the egg and got to keep the toy.  Huh  I dunno

I'm hoping I can get feedback in time for this one, it looks like soooooo much fun!!

Oh, I see. For a moment I forgot that every possible hazard has to be taken away from kids.

*sigh*

I cannot help it, but that kind of patronizing just pisses me off.

So, that means I cannot send them to the US? Good to know!

I just googled the rules about Kinder eggs- and you are actually risking a fine of 300 dollars when you send them to the U.S.
THAT SUCKS.  Angry Angry >:(They are so much fun.
Something about kids not being able to tell food and toy apart......
Yeah, right. Here's a clue: one tastes like plastic, the other doesn't Grin

Ahh! I'm so tempted because I would committ a large number of crimes just to get some Red Vines but I'm trying to save for a quick trip to Spain so don't think I can afford the postage. I'll have to keep an eye out for next time Sad

I'm thinking about getting metal legs. It's a risky operation, but it'll be worth it.

Don't be down on the US Smarties/Rockets - I LOVE those things!!!!

Does any place still have Tart n' Tinys?  I used to love those, but have not seen them in years.

As for savoury snacks, I am good with that myself - I love sweets - especially ones with a sour or savoury edge to them.  I just picked up some awesome Jalapeno chips, and peppercorn steak flavoured ones today because they are my new addiction - Would be glad to share Cheesy
