Help!
I'm doing the holiday swap this year. Be great to get your ideas about what would be good to send to someone in the US. They have so much more choice than we do so I was wondering if there is anything that we have that is difficult/impossible to get over there?

I am the swap partner and I approve of these items! I can get Speculoos spread here but nothing else.

Yeah, I was gonna say, I saw Speculoos (well, Biscoff) in Smyrna, TN. If they have it there, they have it everywhere.

Can you actually get Speculoos spread here? I've not seen it in any shops and I've only ever had it once, and that was in Berlin. I hadn't even heard of it until people started talking about it on the PPK. I though it was Dutch or Flemish or something.

They've just started selling it in Waitrose.

Jamaican barbecue type sauce. It's good. I love the reggae reggae ketchup.
