Thought that the MNers with English cravings (or, obviously, the other way around, eg, an Amercian Mner in Britain, craving erm.. Hershey bars or whatever they're called..).. could post their cravings/wants/needs/desires on here... and that those of us willing and able could send them a portion/pot/bundle/box/jar/bag of what they desire!

Wasn't thinking of money changing hands.. just thought we could send the items in the usual MN spirit of sisterhood.. as we do.. (eg.. I wanted to send Pip some Marmite but Hasfrau said not to.. something to do with serial killers.. .. so I won't...)

Can I have some dulce from northern ireland?

HRHQueenOfQuelNoel Tue 24-Jan-06 18:32:51

well my is a bit daft - and highly unlikely as I know we have very few (if any??) MN'ers in Zimbabwe, and not sure how many of these are available in other parts of Southern Africa.

"Simba" Crisps - Chutney Flavoured
Cheese NikNaks
Tex Bar (not Texan - those who are there will know what I mean) - DH loves them

Oh love Cheese Nik naks, there just not the same here

Pixiefish Tue 24-Jan-06 18:34:57

Lovely idea and would happily post something from Wales (North so no lava bread) to someone abroad

HRHQueenOfQuelNoel Tue 24-Jan-06 18:36:33

kalex - where are you from/where are you now.

I know you can get Cheese NikNaks here - but they're cr*p.

HRHQueenOfQuelNoel Tue 24-Jan-06 18:37:44

ooo - and how could I forget

"Eet Sum Mor" Biscuits (yes that really is what they're called) very "moreish"

I have some cheese Nik-naks in my cupboard QoQ, brought over recently by mil from CapeTown - would they do, or are SA ones different from Zim ones? They're yours if you'd like them - only got one pkt left and would save kids fighting over them!

Must remind her to bring fizz pops next time!

MarsOnLife Tue 24-Jan-06 18:53:19

I am currently in the US but still have regular access to Canada if anyone is missing something from North America.

My children miss Penguins and I actually miss all non GM foods and food without many e-numbers.
