Sorry, you're in Italy and can't find sliced bacon and salted butter? How about unsliced
bacon which you could slice and unsalted
butter which you could salt?
As for frozen waffles, yeah, you might be right that you can't find those, but you can always make your own and freeze them, can't you?
You do realize that trying to get everything you could get in the States is not only the shortest route to insanity, but also to the poorhouse?! You'd have to ship express if the goods are perishable, particularly if they're frozen, and on top of shipping fees, you'd have to add in customs clearance fees which can be incredibly expensive.
You live in a place reknowned for its amazing food. Can't you explore all the wonders that are available there first?
I suggest you go and pop a Rafaello in your mouth and give it a bit of thought ...!
[Edited to say that I suppose this is coming across as nothing but negative. If so, no offense intended. I know what's it's like to miss stuff from elsewhere, but these are my honest thoughts about how wise it is to try to duplicate the offerings of one country while sitting in another ...]
