Currently I live in the U.S and have done quite a few snack exchanges, snacks I have received in the parcel that I wish were sold in the states include:

-Quavers ( UK)
-Thorntons (UK)
-Kinder Eggs ( UK, Canada)
-Caramel Nibs ( UK)
- Pork Floss ( Singapore)
- Twisties ( Singapore)


Let me know which snacks you wish were sold in your country ( please include country as well and the origin of each snack as well)

Thank you ~

I'm in Canada, and I really wish I could get some Pisang Ambon which is a type of banana liqueur.
It's Dutch, and I've never been able to find it here.
I've never tried it before, but I hear it makes an awesome mixing drink.

Pisang is okay for once, but you get bored of the flavour rather quickly imo (I'm from Belgium, they sell it here as well).

Ohh, really?? = O

Banana is my favourite, so I definitely want to try it sometime still! See how it compares to some of the other banana liqueurs I've tried in the past.

Well, it doesn't have an extreme banana-taste imo. Especially since you're supposed to mix it with things like orange juice.

I live in South Africa, we have Kinder eggs sold here btw heart 3nodding

I wish Hershey's cookies & cream chocolate bars were sold here, I think it's a US product (though I had it in Australia)

I would like to try a ton of other candies and snacks - mostly from Japan & America smile heart

I've noticed every country sells them excluding The United States ( it's retarded).

Hershey's Cookies and Cream isn't that bad, it has a greasy feel to them but they aren't sold all the time where I live besides Halloween.

Aren't Kinder Surprises banned for health and safety in the States?

Anyway, as somebody who lives in the UK, I would love to see Campino sweets (Germany) again. I used to have them all the time, but for some reason they're only available on the Continent now. ; _ ; They were the best.

It's banned because we deem the inside to be non nutritive and a potential choking hazard. Even though in the 1990's we had Nestle Wonderballs and how we have Choco Treasures

Campinos look really cool, are they similar to peppermints ( but come in variety of flavors) ?

Campinos are strawberry-and-cream flavoured. I'm not sure the other flavours they come in, because I've only ever seen the strawberry ones when I've been in Germany and Italy. When I was a child, you could never force me to eat any sweets that weren't strawberry-flavoured. xD

I hope you realise this means you and I are going to have to have very strong words about this. One does not simply not like Campinos. >8U
