    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, 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.:thumbsup2

    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?

    Cheetos (oh how I love these)
    Ghiradelli brownie mixes
    Cornbread mixes
    Cupcake frostings
    Red velvet cake mixes
    Jingos Parmesan Garlic crackers
    Jingos Lime and sweet chilli crackers
    Walmarts no sugar drinks powder (Lemonade flavour and Cherry flavour)
    Twinkies for the girls at work (I think they are awful, but they love them)
    A variety of different sauces
    Maple syrup (the low cal version)
    Grape jelly

    we always pack a huge packet of Lays in our hand luggage for the way home..(we munch them as quietly as we can:)

    Thats all I can think off at the moment but we bring loads home.

    It takes me hours to go round Walmart looking down each and every food row!!

    I must start a list for our next trip in November...all those Christmas candies will be out by then as well!:rolleyes1
