    Well, I'm useless for this question, but I'm thinking back to when we didn't live here. No, there was no "must" buy, but we seemed to always end up with a new "top," whether it be a t-shirt or sweatshirt or the like. It was comforting to go back to the frozen north with a memento of WDW's sunny warmth.

    Whatever is cheapest in Walmart - just bring a few packets back as we don't get it here.

    Ah. Well it's a bit bulkier than an envelope style packet, but Jiffy mix can be quite a nice one. Also, you can just bring back the yellow corn meal and make your own cornbread. :yes:

    Why is it you don't have yellow cornmeal there? Does no one make polenta? :unsure:

    Hmmmm I don't think I have any must buy things.

    Dawn, let me know when you needs some more cornbread and I'll be glad to send some

    I seem to remember in either this forum (or another one that we all used to frequent in another life) that a lot of the cake mixes, candies, cereals that were not available in the UK were sought out. I remember telling my wife that many of my friends from the forum used to bring and extra piece of luggage to fill with the food stuffs. Guess that went out the window with paying for a checked bag.

    I always bring home a new Disney coffee mug and an ornament from the Christmas shop. I know I could probably find both cheaper around here, but I want it to be from Disney! Yep, I'm weird like that LOL
