    It's been a while since I last started a thread here on TSR, but I've had something on my mind for a while.

    I've been planning on sending a package of traditionally British things to my friend in Texas, but I'm at a complete loss as to what to send. I've thought about sweets, but I'm not sure what else I could send as well. I don't want to spend too much as I'm a student and so don't have much money.

    Any suggestions would be welcome

    Cadbury's chocolate.
    This. They can buy cadbury in America but it is made in the style of American chocolate AFAIK, ever tried Hersheys? It's vile. I know a few Americans they all say our chocolate is much nicer and our versions of the same products (galaxy bars, dairy milk etc) are what they prefer. Oh and if they like tea then send teabags, again it's not great over there tea wise. I'd send Yorkshire tea because it is the best (PG tips is okay, if you prefer Typhoo you can GTFO).

    Just don't send Kinder Surprise eggs. They're banned over there because of the choking hazard or what ever.


    When sending things over to friends and family, I usually send Nik Naks and Scampi Fries. Battenburg is also a good'un.

    Don't. Just, don't.

    The prohibiton on the eggs is supposed to end this year, but the new style of eggs is so dumb.


    The fact that it's even a thing is laughable.

    I know, but from what I remember, it's not readily available in the US.

    Also pink wafer biscuits.

    Mmm depends where you go, almost all specialty shops seem to carry it and a few safeways, although it seems to be mainly the tourist spots that have it and by god do they charge for it :rolleyes:

    In 1902 the Marmite Food Extract Company was formed in Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire, England by the Gilmour family, with Marmite as its main product and Burton as the site of the first factory.......
    The product's popularity prompted the Sanitarium Health Food Company to obtain sole rights to distribute the product in New Zealand and Australia in 1908.[7] They later began manufacturing Marmite under licence in Christchurch, albeit using a modified version of the original recipe, most notable for its inclusion of sugar and caramel

    Read the last bit, sole rights . it's as kiwi as they come now and they're very proud of it, when the factory got squished I'm sure many of them were more upset about that than the rest of the town falling over

    Edit: damn been living over here to long my mistake apologies
