Hmm, maybe I misunderstood the statement but the first thought that came to mind was listing an item that I thought was odd to have in a foreign supermarket, as a local product I could find at home but would not expect to find overseas. Oh well, I can give both. The first thought was being in Barcelona and finding, amidst fully skinned rabbits (eyes included) and lots and lots of black ham, Zensoy chocolate soymilk pudding (US based company). Aside from the produce, this was the pretty much the only thing my husband and I could eat since we’re… Read more »

warm soda in Japan. Yes, instead of putting them in the fridge, they put dozens of cans of soda on a hot plate to keep it warm.

Ice Cream Series – Matcha preferred flavor
Anything else could be my back up flavor. I just love those cookies!

Going into restaurants in Canada and servers asking if you want gravy on your french fries! No offense to any Canadians reading this but I don’t like gravy on anything. So putting it on my french fries is totally gross. Best thing I’ve ever ate in Canada is a Moose Burger…..YUM Makes me want one for dinner.

Birthday Cake or Vanilla Ice Cream is my flavor for the Oreo’s. I tried the candy corn oreos this thanksgiving didn’t really care for them

Ketchup flavored ‘crisps’ in London.

Going in the other direction – the lack of what Americans call Swiss cheese in Switzerland. Instead, a whole section of the cheese counter is devoted to delicious Swiss-made fromage.

Something unexpected, hmm… Probably the different flavors of Mentos candies in Japan. I’d already known about the Kitkats and potato chips, but the Mentos I hadn’t expected. It’s always fun to see what you’re familiar with in a different guise in another country! 🙂 1st Choice: Birthday Cake 2nd Choice: Green Grape & Peach Actually, I rather jumped out of my seat when I saw those Birthday ones. My sister’s crazy for them! They were to celebrate Oreo’s 100th birthday this year. I grabbed a couple of 4-cookie packs when I found them in Dubai earlier this year, because the… Read more »

Pepperoni pizza at the local street market in south baghdad iraq in 2007 (during my 15 month deployment on one of my weekly trips to the market), as pork is totally off limits to the muslim people. when I asked the vendor why in world he was selling pepperoni pizza at an Iraqi market, his answer was simple, “solider like pepperoni on their pizza”……well played my friend……your pizza was awful.

1st choice: Birthday Cake (sounds way better then Iraqi Pepperoni Pizza)
2nd choice: Ice Cream Series – Vanilla (also sounds way better then Iraqi Pepperoni Pizza)

My wife loves the Lemon Iced Tea flavored Lay’s potato chips that I get her when I’m in China.

My favorite Oreos are the matcha ice cream flavor followed by the birthday cake.

Love visiting US fastfood chains abroad. In Hong Kong always like to grab a Red Bean Sundae at McDonald’s.
Travelling with a baby in Italy? Baby food is only available in pharmacies. Top two flavors: rabbit and horse, complete with adorable cartoon characters.
Birthday cake or matcha, why not?

Going to grocery stores when I travel is one of my favorite things! In Argentina, the supermarkets seem to all blast rock/pop music while you shop. It’s like a shopping party – very different from Muzak-filled American shops. Any flavor would be great.

I have a friend whose husband collects macaroni and cheese boxes, so I go into supermarkets all over to look for ones for him. He was especially appreciative of the ones I found in Peru.

In terms of strange foods, there are always the packaged dried mopane worms in South Africa. (Which also has interesting potato chip flavors, like peri peri chicken or curry.)

My first choice would be matcha, second would be birthday cake.

In a grocery store in Italy (maybe in all of Europe) I observed other local shoppers not touching fruits and veggies with their bare hands. Instead they use the plastic bags as “glove”.

1st choice: orange mango
2nd choice: matcha

Whenever I hear someone is going to Japan, I always ask for some exotic flavored Kit Kats. Green Tea or Soy.
Looks like China has some great novelty foods as well. I would love to try Green Tea or Orange Mango.

Masala flavored potato chips in India. There were a lot of other geographically specific flavors, but that’s the one I distinctly remember.

Birthday cake sounds interesting as a first choice, otherwise green grape+ preach.

Thanks

I came across some interesting M&M packages in a grocery store in Guangdong Province, China. The flavor was the same, but the package was pyramid shaped. We bought several and used them as party favors at my son’s 4th birthday party. They were a hit.

I also bought some chewable durian flavored candy. I gave them to some unsuspecting coworkers. I thought they weren’t too bad, but they were not impressed.

I continue to be taken aback when I see fresh eggs just sitting on a shelf, unrefrigerated. My preferred flavor is raspberry/blueberry. Back-up is birthday cake. Thanks!
