    I know Tink, I have never been to Europe, so I don't have the mindset. To get it straight in my mind, I bring back certain things that I can't get in Virginia when I go back to Pennsylvania to see my mom and brothers. Ummmm now you are talking about bringing something REALLY wonderful back. (Snyders Little Cheesers Pretzels, Middlesworth BBQ chips, Tastycakes, Birchola, and a few local beers like Stegmaier) So I can see what you mean, but cake mixes?:p

    Yes, when I go north I come back with cheese curds, a particular type of pepperoni, and tomatoes in particular. :yes:

    If I am in the right location I visit the Florentine and bring back their cannoli, and pasticiottis among other pastry. :D :D

    I bring back the top split "lobster" rolls too. :yes: :D

    We arent big on cake mixes in the UK and usually make cakes from scratch, but lots of cakes on the Allrecipes site use mixes. I am desperate to try some of the highly rated ones so I marked out some recipes I would like to try and brought those mixes home. :) I did try waffle and pancake mix from Le Gourmet Chef but to be honest my own home made mix was much better. Its the same when I go home to Ireland - I have to bring back some lovely wheaten bread and cakes. I darent come home without them!

    I would have sworn that I saw Devonshire Clotted Cream at our local Wegmans on the day it opened but I haven't been able to find it since. Haven't looked for the Irish Bacon. But they DEFINITELY have those New England Lobster/Hot Dog Rolls Tink. :p015:

    I love pink lemonade (I love all things pink!) but I don't think I'd bring it back with me.

    Last time I brought back a supersized jar of jalapenos - the ones here are tiny.

    This time it will probably be some hot salsa - my supermarkets now only stock mild and medium - pah! wimps! :lol:
