I'm doing a swap on here with an American PPK'er and I'm sending her stuff she can't get over there and vice versa.....as I've never been to the states, I'm not sure what stuff I should ask for and I know a few of you have been so....do you guys have any recommendations? I know she has access to a whole foods. Thanks!

If you're not fussed about the healthy aspect, Americans can get like a million different flavours of Oreos. And maybe that mac and cheese that recently came out?

Oh, good idea! I've also thought of that chicken stock stuff they have that's vegan, better than bouillon I think it's called. I want to make a chicken type soup :)

Better than Bouillon is amazing!

Trader Joe's is usually a great resource for vegan treats only available in the states. If you're into it, I would suggest requesting candy cane Joe-Joes! Those are really a rare (and seasonal) treat!

Better than Bouillon is nice, yeah. Daiya, the fake cheese, is kind of okay. It tastes like Wotsits.

Just ask for your body weight in Clif Builders Bars. Every kind. And then send them to me.

Justin's peanut butter cups are pretty great.

Earth Balance has popcorn, crisps, and cheesy crackers (i think) in addition to the boxed mac & cheese, but i don't know how widely available they are.

the chicken-style Better Than Bouillon is useful for lots of things. if you want to make chicken soup with it, i suggest requesting Soy Curls as well.

maybe a seasonal flavor of Taza chocolate (e.g. eggnog, gingerbread, peppermint stick) if they're not too hard for your swap partner to find?

Thanks for this! I thought they had gelatin but it turns out they're now vegan.
