Or find an American friend and do a food swap :) I did that once with someone I met over the net... she sent me Twinkies, Reeses Pieces, Doritos, Three Musketeers bars etc, and I sent her Mallowpuffs, pineapple chunks, Pinky bars, twisties, etc.

That was great fun! Although I'm still having withdrawl symptoms over the Three Musketeers bar. WHY can't we get those here?

Sweet, buttery, a bit like digestives.

Hi Heather, tks for that.

We have a biscuit called Granitas which a few of us here have decided might be the closest thing. If not, I will try online or I have a cousin in San Francisco who is coming home in March so I might email him and see if it is possible to bring some back with him. Tks for the tip on the link to NetGrocer though.

Cath

Hi Stassie

A fellow southerner.

Thanks for the great idea. What are mallowpuffs - choc marshmallow biscuits I am thinking.

I know what you mean though, I had low fat twisties and sourdough burgers from Jack in the Box when I was in Hawaii many many moons ago. Hungry Jacks is about the closest.

Cath
