    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:

    Street food is awesome. Best thing about vietnam was being able to get an ice cold chopped pineapple quartered and ready for about 50 cents anywhere on the street since the women always have them. :drool:

    Ate about 2/3 a day tbh. Lol.

    Kinder joy! Not kinder eggs, the one that has a plastic shell and one half has Nutella-like stuff in it. I'd include a picture but I've completely forgotten how to.
