Marmite...now don't go crazy mate!015:
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?
Yes, when I go north I come back with cheese curds, a particular type of pepperoni, and tomatoes in particular.
If I am in the right location I visit the Florentine and bring back their cannoli, and pasticiottis among other pastry.
I bring back the top split "lobster" rolls too.
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 think I will start a business 015:
I will just go shopping once a month and then send all of the stuff out to you guys in the UK. I wonder what I could make..
Oh I would think soda bread...love that. My cousin visited our relatives in Sligo and got the best recipe for soda bread. I try to make it and it makes a good man hole cover.
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. 015:
chococlate covered pretzels
franks hot sauce
peanut butter m and ms
peanut butter chips for baking
old bay seasoning
frenchs? fried onions
french vanilla creamers
hidden valley ranch dressing
honey mustard sauce
Not much then?
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!
Sainsburys used to always sell libby's tinned pumpkin

I live in the countryside not the big smoke :tongue0011-1:

Ours has a Starbucks

I'll think of you tomorrow, I have to take some recycling there and I can't walk past a Starbucks without buying a caramel frappucino
I make a mean flask of coffee.
