you are right about the different tastes of the cocolate chips..if you find them, they are just plain...
maybe these links will help you?
I can't get my cookies to come out chewy with the raw (brown) sugar in Germany. Maybe I'm not compensating correctly. But I've actually grown to prefer choc. chip cookies made with the Milka milk chocolate.
For vanilla, do you use vanilla sugar or the phials of vanilla oil?
Interesting links. For the most part, I don't pay the premium prices to get American items in Germany. When I have room in the suitcase, though, I'll bring it along from visits home. Part of living abroad is that you adapt to the culture you're living in. This thread was more of a "what if" question. I learned long ago that if you try to package your homeland and bring it with you, it will bring heartache. I tried to do that the first time I lived abroad at the raw, young age of 21... Moscow, Russia. I got so homesick it hurt. Embrace where you are. That's my motto.
