any swappers in China??
My best friend my junior year was an exchange student from China, and her mom used to send over these packs of salty vegetables, I used to LOVE them! I think she said the brand name translated was lonely god, I've never been able to find these since, and the local foreign market told me they needed more information to go by.

Pixieval, Yep, the packets are emblazoned with 'LONELY GOD'  Grin They're all over China.
(here they are http://www.taquitos.net/snacks.php?snack_code=2605)

Unfortunately I moved back to Australia this year. Maybe I could find them at a local Asian grocer?

As for crafty snack containers, I have usually carry a zippered pouch in my purse that I stock with candy, granola bars, and crackers.  It's much less awkward than carrying a box in my purse Wink
A vinyl-lined zip pouch would be a great idea!

I think obscure, regional, and/or retro candy would be fun too!  Mallo Cups, Boston Baked Beans, burnt peanuts, candy cigarettes (I know, NOT P.C., but they bring back memories.  Smiley ), Lemon Heads, and Pop Rocks.  I also did a Google search on regional candy and kept finding the Idaho Spud.  Intriguing...a candy named after a potato.   Huh

I love sending an Idaho Spud in my swap packages.... people's reactions to it are so funny.  Smiley

I toured the Better Made potato chip factory in Detroit and would LOVE to have some of those yummy chips again!  They don't sell them in Indiana.

a kinder egg is a small egg shaped treat made of chocolate.  it's hollow on the inside, and once you break it open, you'll get a small toy!
they are fun fun fun Smiley

I just bought a jumbo kinder egg for my OH for easter... its massive nearly a foot high!! and the surprise inside was twice the size of a normal kinder egg!! he loved it.!

Seriously in awe of the craft stashes that are on this forum.
I bow down to your awesomeness.

A) This topic has a great list of Candies etc that you can't get in other countries: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=121655.0. . . .

B) I also linked to that in the round I ran of the "My Country/Region Doesn't Have That" swap(https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=229211.0).  That swap usually ends up being pretty heavy on the snacks, though it isn't entirely snack focused. (And yes, I ran that round as kind of an Ongoing swap, but there were lots of others that were just direct partner-partner). Just thought it may be of interest.

C) No matter what direction this takes, I might be interested! You'd be surprised at how many different types of chocolate bars that Canada has that the US doesn't (not to mention elsewhere in the world!).
