I've been browsing the "My Country Doesn't Have That" gallery for some time now and I got to thinking.   Just in the USA alone, there is quite a diversity between the different regions- East Coast, Southern, Midwest, Texas (hehe), Southwest, West Coast, and Northwest.  Also, Hawaii and Alaska.  And even then, there are many different regional things in each.  New York City and Philly is vastly different from St. Louis or Memphis, or even Chicago!   And....LA...well, to a midwestern girl like myself it seems to be an enitrely different world!   Wink   All of these regions and cities have local things, places, foods that they are proud of and may not be available in the rest of the US. 

For Example:  Ive heard several times that my hometown of St. Louis is one of the only places in the US that BBQs Pork Steaks and also has an obsession with Gooey Butter Coffee Cake.   While sending a BBQed pork steak may not be an option, a recipie might be! 

So, basically, what I was thinking was is there an interest in doing a "My Region Doesn't Have That! "   or "Regional Pride" swap?  I think it would have to be among US swappers at first, unless mutiple people from the same country outside the US signed up (and they could be partnered).   Things swapped would be produced or even first introduced in your city/state/region.   

What do all of you think?

hmmmm sounds fun! i'm from Virginia, but live in Florida, so that could give me some interesting range. i'm finishing up a swap right now, but i'd definitely be interested in this one.

Hmmm....maybe expand it to North America?

I have seen ketchup chip!   But they quickly went away.  Must have been a test run kind of thing which didn't pan out in our area or something.

I'd definetely be in, I was actually thinking about this lately too. I think it would be cool to expand it to North America, but I think it is important to mention in the swap details that you may get someone in the same country as you. I also like this swap idea because you need to be creative. Maybe you could enforce some sort of spending limit or something. But yes, I'd totaly join!
