    After the discussion on last night's stream, today I went for a walk, DaVinci Micro in pocket and got a bunch of British munchie food to send to Bud and Hazel. Knowing @Señor Negro won't be able to get half of what Bud was looking at in Spain I figure they will enjoy seeing what we have here in UK.
    I have tried to go for all the real British classics that you won't see anywhere else but some of the stuff Bud mentioned really surprised me, like how do you have Snickers and Twix in the US but not Mars bars WTF.
    Do any of my fellow Brits here on the forum have any ideas on what else I should get hold of to include, I know Bud wants a Lion bar and I have not found one of those yet. I was also thinking it would be funny to send a jar of Marmite but I have a feeling Bud and Hazel will think it is seriously discusting. I am also slightly dubious about the Dip Dab and Sherbert Fountain getting red flagged in customs.:lol:
    Any other suggestions?

    Dont send the kinder eggs. With each kinder egg there is a fine and they are taken away. Love what you are doing buddy :victory:

    And why is that?? :gasp:
    Maybe you thought that because I said half of the munchies Bud found in his google search were not actually from Spain? :sweat:

    I like the idea of an international munchie food shipment :lol:

    But! Kinder bueno and Kinder suprise are not from UK! :roll:
    I think they are not even spanish, that's actually an italian company who make those if I'm not wrong ..

    I will go this week (if my fish memory don't let me down again :sweat: ) and check some to see what Bud and Hazel wants to be sent :wink:

    Indeed plus I used to live in Menorca so I knew you wouldn't be able to get that stuff, I really like Nuts bars but we don't have them in UK.
    Kinder is Italian but I was surprised they are not in the US, turns out they are banned in America so maybe I will have to leave them out.

    "According to the customs website, they have made more than 3,000 seizures of Kinder chocolate eggs among the mail facilities, commercial shipments and individual travelers entering the U.S. since 2010. However, other Kinder brand candy products that do not contain the small toy can be mailed without restriction."

    Hmm never really liked M&Ms ... Not while we have Lacasitos :_)____

    EDIT: Found this and I didn't know! :gasp:
    "Los Lacasitos son una línea de productos de chocolate de Lacasa, lanzados al mercado el 13 de junio de 1982. Su forma es redondeada y su diámetro es de 1 cm. Se trata de una lenteja de chocolate con leche recubierta por 150 capas de azúcar. Wikipedia"

    "... of chocolate covered by 150 layers of sugar" :starstruck: :yum:

    Kind of overkill but what they don't want is a choking hazard as the unedible toy container is inside the edible chocolate and this runs afoul of FDA law and regulations.

    Thanks man good catch, I googled this myself and was pretty amazed, red tape madness.
    The kinder egg yellow pots make great pocket stash jars for ground up weed. I take one out with my dyna vap all the time.

    We have Mars bars...Mars is the name of the USA candy company alsoBaron23

    That makes more sense, I thought it was strange you had Mars products but not Mars bars.
    I really like Marmite or the watered down AUS version Vegamite but I appreciate most people find it horrid, definitely a aquired taste.

    A LOT of people do...but I suspect its an acquired taste best developed from childhood! haha

    What I remember...and it was quite long ago...was that it was VERY salty. No?
  • standingsideways

    Yeah that's it, salty strong deep yeasty flavour almost like Guinness. I love it but your right I was raised on it and am now pretty addicted.

    Haha, I always loved Marmite, especially with cheese on toast. I cant eat it now, due to the yeast largely. Its biggest downside is the high salt content. I've got no problem with that, it is the refined salt which is the negative aspect. Unrefined will never hurt you as long (as you drink enough water and is all about balance of course).

    Otherwise, marmite is a great high protein source, packed with B vitamins too I believe. Its definitely a food I would eat if I could. It's got that "umami" stimulating taste as they call it.

    Anyway...@standingsideways great selection man good job so far. When I saw the Monster Munch I just had to zoom in to see if you did in fact get the pickled onions and well done bro! I used to love them.

    How about a mint Aero? I also used to enjoy a Twirl bar. More than the Flake at least.

    I think Chocolate Hobnobs would impress more. And make sure Bud has tried Chocolate Digestives. If not, they are a top pick IMO. I think there are a couple more great chocolate bars I can't recall right now.

    But also would be good- a few different varieties of classic British biscuits (maybe to go with a "cuppa" on stream?? :lol: ) no joke though that would be really cool to see Bud and Hazel sit down to an actual proper cup of tea with a biscuit assortment.

    If that could be hooked up that would be awesome (or maybe I should say- "sweet"!)

    I suggest: chocolate digestives, custard creams, Fox's Golden crunch creams....(I could go on...)

    Okay just my thoughts. Nice light and fun thread. I'll pop back with any better ideas ( Crisp wise I also used to like "Frazzles" are not sure if you can still get them they were bacon flavoured and stripy. )


    Edit- hope this shows properly guys:

    That would be hysterical, perhaps a pack of Tea and some more biscuits are the way forward but don't worry those are chocolate hobnobs in there already.

    Frazzles are a cracking idea, I did not see any today but I'll try and find some of them for sure.

    Awsome! I just remembered another one as well which I haven't thought about for years:

    Screenshot-20190318-010546.png

    Can you still get these? I used to adore them. I never hear them even mentioned anymore. Quite underrated IMO. Way better than like: Minstrels, Smarties, M&M's, Maltesers etc, you name it.

    Munchies rule. :strong:
