    McVittie's Penguins. The markup is probably for the best or I'd buy them all the time.

    Since folks are talking about brick and mortar locations. I think of all the fast food places around, when traveling out of the country or even just being out in the Southwest, I really miss White Castles! Grew up on them.

    Yum, Penguins! Ate a lot of Penguins when I was pregnant with my first (or the Aldi knock off which is just as good).

    My dad sometimes gets discounted McVities stuff like HobNobs at Ocean State Job Lot, if you're in the northeast. Last time he was there though, a couple in front of him were buying the entire remaining stock!

    I'm safe! The closest Aldis is over an hour away. I've never seen Penguins at OSJL, but I have seen other McVities stuff. They're holding out on the good stuff.

    In the US I miss sweetened condensed milk in tubes, and Cote d'Or chocolates. OK, the trains and yoghurt. And I have to really hunt for good bread. And why can't we buy Kindle books in foreign languages? (ok, a few are now available, but why can't we buy Kindle books from Amazon.anywhere.but.com?)

    This is a great thread. To the ponytail holder poster, I feel your pain. My latest choice has been the folded-over stretchy elastic kind that you can get by the handful on Etsy. They stretch out after a couple of days of constant wear, but they are soft and comfortable.

    To the Wegman's fan - I get it. I used to call our grocery trips there in New Jersey "Wegmania."

    Re: McVitie's, do you have Cost Plus World Market in your area? I get digestive biscuits there but I don't know the Penguins.

    Things I want but can't have:
    -Maple sugar candy. It's only available in SF Bay Area stores in November/December, and sells out very quickly. I've considered ordering some from Vermont but never have.
    -Italian juices and sodas and Japanese juice boxes. I haven't found anything locally that compares. The Italian products were lemon Freedea soda (fantastic) and albicocca (apricot) juice. Just delicious. The Japanese grape juice boxes kept me going during my train travel there. Pure fruit!
    -Schweppes Bitter Lemon soda (this was a whole separate thread at one point on the forums)
    -Cat's tongues chocolates. I had them once or twice as a kid on a trip to Europe. Milk chocolate in a stretched out barbell shape like a cat's tongue. Fun to eat!
    -My trade paperback copy of Confessions of a Shopaholic, circa 2006. I gave mine away on Freecycle and recently purchased a newer copy, but I sure do miss my original copy.

    I went to college in Rochester NY and ended up living there for about a decade - home of Wegman's! Spoiled me on other grocery stores for a long time.

    I'm from New England originally and live in the Bay Area now... if you remember (!) closer to Xmas and still live out here, message me and I'll pick up some maple sugar candies for you when I go homehome to MA for the holidays.

    Cheers

    This gave me the warm fuzzies. Thank you for such a nice offer!

    Today I found something I didn't know I wanted, but that I can relatively easily have. Cost Plus World Market stocks Original New York Seltzer, those little glass bottles with fruit-flavored fizzy sugar water from the 1980s. The website has the back story on the return of the product to production. Tastes delicious! It was a real treat to have it when I was a kid.

    I went to college in NY State and we LOVED that seltzer there, especially Lemon-Lime!

    I had a true madeleine moment, I tasted the condensed milk in tube and the Cote d'Or chocolates from my mind to my taste buds.

    I know, it is not the same but, I try local bakeries, run by people who have been trained in French pastries techniques, when I have a very big craving for bread, real croissant, chocolate croissant, etc...

    I bought a Kobo e-reader, some years ago, and I believe I can get books in any language, I want.

    Now, Kobo has an app for both Apple and Android, so no need to carry more than a tablet, fablet or just a phone to get something to read that is more enlightening that airport tabloids or mass market non fiction "best sellers."

    There is also an app and a website called Gutenberg which has free classics, in public domain books and in many, many languages.

    To keep a clear voice in any language, Ricola with honey and real sugar, the original formula is available in the U.S.
    It was a relief, when I found out that package after reading the "sugar free" on most other cough drop, even other Ricola packages.

    Toblerone can be found at Trader Joes and Costco.

    With the exception of books, I try to "forget" where to get all the "flavors of France" goodies.

    I remember these! I was trying to think of the name but I couldn't get it. My favorite flavor was vanilla, my sister always got raspberry. Makes me wonder if I could recreate it with some Monin syrup...

    Follow up: it turns out I can have this as long as a fellow forum member is nice enough to send some from the other side of Earth.



    I now have about two 3DOCs worth of delicious tea. Thanks Killeri!

    I was born in Rochester! Wegmans is still the standard (for me )by which all other grocers are measured. That store brand ice cream. And yes, the maple candy and syrup are incredible. When I moved to Atlanta I was shocked at what passed for maple syrup.

    I also miss the fresh McIntosh apples... although the GA peaches can be pretty amazing!

    The biggest one? Tom Bihn products. The $30 int. shipping rate along with the ludicrous taxes HMRC impose really has to make me think twice before purchasing

    I get the shipping rates - like they're understandable, I mean Mystery Ranch said shipping to England would be $99! :O
