Q: Ever have a friend ship over some type of tasty snack? Expensive?

Chains like Walmart, Carrefour, and Metro all have some type of an imports section where you can find your favorite munchies. They meet you half way in that respect, but after about three or four visits you begin noticing their blatant shortcomings in stock of certain food items.  Yeah, its a bit too much to ask businesses to carry everything that you'd expect them to have back home, globalization has taken us far but not far enough that Im going to be able to find a token food item that I'm suddenly craving.  

 

Is international shipping of small type food items ( ritz, vanilla oreos, nutrer butters) really expensive?  Just wondering if anybody knows about that.

Not to start a which hunt but, isn't it a wumaoism to have the word "tasty" in the question. 

 

"Did you ever have a friend ship some kind of foul snack?" Who'd want that. 

 

I have found that the better option, instead of craving stuff from home, is to keep trying new stuff until you have found a variety of local snacks that can keep you snacking happily.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
