Which foods do you love to bring home from the US?

We like to bring back;
  • Peanutbutter M&Ms
  • Snyder's Pretzel Pieces
  • French Vanilla Coffeemate
  • Ghiradelli Chocolate
  • Cake mix boxes

Both times I've gone through pre-flight checks with canisters of Coffeemate in my backpack I've had a full bag search and the oddest looks from security staff!!!

Next time I also want to get;
  • Cornbread mix
  • Candycorn
  • Chipotle Pepper

What do you like to take home?

Well, where do I start???

Almond M&Ms
Dark choc mint M&Ms (Christmas Special, coloured red, white and green)
Coconut M&Ms
Dark Choc raspberry M&Ms (are you seeing a theme here??)
Cheez-Its (the bigger box the better)
Nellie & Joes Key Lime Juice
Buffalo chicken Lays (although these rarely make it past the departure gate!!!)
Midnight Milky Ways
Packets of crystal light drinks powder (particularly raspberry lemonade flavour)
Chiplotle flakes from Williams Sonoma

And non-food shopping...........
Antibac handwash from Bath & Body Works
Body cream from Bath & Body works
Lady speed stick deodourant (I love this stuff and usually buy about 6 at a time!!)

Now you know why I always pre-pay for an extra bag on the way home!!!!!

Well, from what I've seen on this thread so far. Wouldn't you all be better off just packing up and living over there? I don't mean it in a nasty way, it's just that between you all you seem to have smuggled into the UK enough stuff to fill a Wal-Mart.Carry on shopping girls.

We didn't bring anything home this time round, really need to spend a full day food shopping next time!!

Lots of stuff you can get in the American Sweet Shops that have sprung up recently round ours, but at £1.50 a can for Mountain Dew it sure ain't cheap

I havent bought anything from the UK - it just feels good bringing things home and knowing you paid a reasonable amount too! Though after this hol we wont be going to the US for many years

Where is the nearest very large supermarket to WDW? I was thinking it would be Walmart?
