Anybody got a hankering after something that is available as vegan somewhere else but not where you are?

Post in here with your requests and if you see something you think you could help someone out on in return for something they can get then drop them a message here or by pm.

Also, if you just want junk food from somewhere else but don't care what you can leave a post requesting just that.


My request...... SKITTLES!!!!!

Also seeking oreos.

Dandies, maple leaf cookies and Trader Joe's baked onion rings. In return I can send all sorts of lovely goods from the UK such as Birds custard powder, Pink Panther wafers and bacon frazzles.

8ball, I have no idea what maple leaf cookies are, but if you give me a clue I am sure I can find them (probably). I'd love any type of treat from your part of the world (the only dislike on this end if coconut). Imma PM you now.

Heyhey!

Send me your address and I will send you tasty treats as requested (as long as I can find them). Just enlighten me about the dandies...I already know the other two ;).

So much fun!

I am extremely interested in trying Vegusto. Does anyone have experience shipping it to the US? I've read it doesn't fare well unrefrigerated. Would it ship with freezer packs?

I don't know what we have here in America that doesn't exist elsewhere. Sounds like skittles and oreos? Are Newman-Os available globally? They're essentially Oreos but come in like 8 different flavors.

Never heard of Newmans-o's! We have skittles and oreos here but neither is vegan. I think smarties are vegan over in USA too.

Newmans-o's are similar to oreos in a way. They have a variety of flavors including ginger flavored that are really good.

Other American things - Peanut chews (chocolate candy thing), Chick-o-sticks, Swedish fish, Sour Patch kids, random items from Trader Joe's

Doesn't the company that owns Skittles test on animals?

I wanna try Vegusto too. I also LOVE British crisps, in all the weird flavours that are accidentally vegan.

Canada has awesome potato chips in crazy flavours: Mexican Chili (my favourite), Chili Ketchup, Dill Pickle, etc... Also Oreos and skittles, and other candy that I probably don't know about because I'm a salt over sugar girl.

I also live in Canada if anyone wants anything Canadian - chips, Oreos, skittles, Swedish Fish, Swedish Berries, pretty sure I can easily get maple cookies, etc. It's also easy to find things like liquid smoke and marmite and what-not, for non-junk food things.

All I could find on the internet is that they don't. I've seen plenty of PPKer's mention they are vegan so I'm taking their word for it!

Mmmmm. I had these once. At the meeting in Vienna (2009) the US PPK'ers brought so many goodies... Good times.

Our smarties are not the same as your smarties (I wish!). They are little fruity sour candies that turn to powder when you chew them.

Ooh this sounds fun! I can get Skittles, Oreos (lots of different flavors), Dots, Sour Patch Kids, some other things like that. It's actually hard for me to find Peanut Chews or Chick-O-Sticks, although I have seen both, but I'll trade with anyone who has anything interesting.

UKers - I can hook you up with (pretty much) anything... I have access to some decently stocked natural foods stores, Trader Joes, and Wegmans (super awesome grocery store). I'd be interested in a random assortment of UK stuff!

Canadians (or people living in Canada), you have vegan kitkats!

I'm in Germany, not sure if I can find Vegusto but I have access to Viana fake meat items (would these stay ok though while shipping?), alpro soy products (chocolate, vanilla, dark chocolate, caramel flavored puddings), vegan gummybears, soy whipped cream, soy creamers for coffee or cooking, a type of speculoos-like spread, some ricemilk chocolate bars... you tell me what else is awesomely European here!

I'd be interested in Oreos, especially the peanut butter filled type, or any Newman O's really, dandies marshmallows if you happen to live nearby a place that has them, or ricemellow spread. Anything with chocolate.

I'd love to have some vegan dark chocolate Kit Kats from Canada, if there is a Canadian member who would be willing to send me some and has any requests. (And of course other interesting Canadian goodies if you want.)

We have a Trader Joe's, and I also have easy access to a locally made vegan jerky that's delicious. I can get Dandies too, in case you guys can't get those up there.
