    Yep, they're Dutch! There's a ton of ways to make them, I believe the most common is eggs, flour and milk (sometimes sugar too) but I exchange the eggs for brown sugar due to allergies. They taste great!
    Ooh, I shall try some soon. I'm on holiday there right now, how timely!

    Stroopwaffels are soo much better & cheaper in holland
    7up cherry is really good too
    Arizona peach iced tea is soo good, almost as good as the one at Wagamama's, pretty sure it's gonna take up most of my luggage space

    Never been abroad, and I don't know if this counts, but here goes.
    Mother used to live in South Africa. Fast forward to now, and we found a South African store that imports stuff from SA.
    My favourite thing there is a chocolate bar called Milo. Wish I could get it from supermarkets here. It's a pain paying £2.60 a time for one bar of Milo. They also have Cadbury's Astros in SA. They are yummy. Again, not cheap here (£1.65-ish for a 75g box) but so worth it

    For me, it's peanut butter M&Ms. Like a lot of things, you can get them in small packets from certain 'candy' shops, but they are ridiculously priced and I refuse to pay it. I just wish I'd have brought more home <3

    I frequently hear about how good Taco Bell is in the USA. I'd really like to try some tbh.
    They have a few over here. I have been to the one in Manchester. It was a let down

    I used to love getting these on holiday, haven't seen them in a while though! also love Mountain Dew, I've had the Mountain Dew energy here and it tasted awful!
    There's a fair few places here that sell Maxibons! I have bought them at ice cream vans and also from Asda. They don't seem to taste the same though. I think that's just me maybe preferring them on holiday though in general .

    Also, all the range of Milka and Ritter Sport chocolate available in Europe.
    And so cheap (in Germany at least)! About 90c a bar if you go to the cheap supermarkets.

    Oh yes! Saw them in the supermarket and had to pick them up for the name alone. They were pretty tasty too.

    For me, it's a good German Kartoffelsalat.



    Good old Edeka with their Gut und Günstig!

    Churros! With the amazing chocolate to dip in :drool: I know they maybe sell them at food festivals but I hardly ever see them in the UK, i'm not sure why as they are amazingly tasty and nourish.

    Only one thing. And that's Pepsi Blue. The greatest flavour ever made.
