    Customs can't check *all* the boxes and the worst they can do is take them and send a move note to the receiver asking for $250 to take possession of said egg.

    Why didn't you offer Velveeta?

    I think I can send someone salmon jerky (I'm in the US--Pacific Northwest!). They got some pretty neat snacks...pricey but good.

    Forget another country. I need someone to send me some freaking Golden Flake Hot Chips from the South. Oh and some grits...real grits. @kyuuei you're down there, you seen hot chips in the store?!

    I sent off a treasure trove of goodies from America, and I got this awesome box today in return!

    Super excited. My parents and I decided we'd cook up some good brats with the kraut and use the rest on sandwiches the next day. The kids DESTROYED the kinder eggs within 10 seconds of being around them, and now it's car-dragon-basketball outside.

    @kyuuei The jello is woodruff flavor - something very German (mainly used in icecream and jello). The traditional sherbet candy also has some of it (the green blocks).
    Back when I lived in the USA in the nineties pumpernickel bread was very hard to get, not sure if you get it around the corner nowadays, but bread is one of those things you lust for as a Greman after a being abroad for a while and this one offers itself to longdistance shipping. Try it with northern style mettwurst spread or some creamcheese and pickles!
    I know you guys have Haribo but the recipe is a bit different here and there are dozents of different types. I got you the very classic ones that mainly differ from the international version in that they have less artificial coloring but also taste a bit different.
    The marzipan chocolate and the fix for the schnitzel should be self-explanatory.

    It's all fantastic! I'm going to pick up some cornichons downtown tomorrow, and mix some creamed cheese, yogurt, and dill together and have me a grand old time with that bread! Also my nephews almost destroyed the gummy bears immediately upon seeing them.. I did get to try each flavor, but a house of 8 people doesn't allow for a high survival rate for gummy bears. The green one was definitely my favorite too. and they taste better in Germany than they do here. I dont like the ones here, I was pleasantly surprised.
