    Maltese foods like quassat, lampuki, pastizzi and figoli. Also European ice-creams and patisseries tend to massively outperform their English counterparts.

    Edit - I agree with the person who commented on the range of Milka bars available abroad. :drool: Just remembered bacon flavoured Tuc crackers as well!

    They sell pop tarts in most supermarkets (probably at vast cost, but still...).

    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
    Milo!!! Love that stuff. And Ouma rusks. And Pro-Nutro.

    Asda sells Tayto crisps, and try looking in international food shops for Baklava. Not quite the same I'm sure, but still delicious!

    Wow, all of yours look so tempting :coma: . I watched that 'how to open a bottle of Ramune' video, and all I could think is, why the hell would they make a bottle that is so difficult to open?! I mean, sure, once you know how to do it it is easy, but still a lot more complicated than just twisting a cap.

    Share the best things you've bought abroad then failed to find when back home.



    My top one would have to be Fanta pineapple which is not sold in UK but is in places like Cambodia. it was delicious! Best Fanta flavour by 10* the next one.

    Was distraught when found out UK didn't have it upon my return. :cry:

    Id love to try that.
    It looks amazing.
