    Thirty ounces of savory crispy spuddy goodness, incoming:

    If there's a lot of interest in these flavors, I could be persuaded to go back to the store to buy more.
    This food exchange is going to look like a beauty pageant for potato chips from around the world!

    YES please!

    I'm flying over from Singapore so if there's anything I can contribute, let me know.

    I love Singaporean food, but chili crab and carrot cake w/fried oysters won't travel well. I recall there's some pretty radical potato chip flavors though -- spicy salmon?

    I know I'm coming into this kind of late but if anyone could find me some Kinder Reigel I'd be ridiculously happy. I'm in NH so I don't have much to offer in trade besides money.

    I'll bring an assortment of Aeros, Smarties, Coffee Crsisps and Canadian version Kit Kats. I'm also adding a box of Maple Dare cookies. I'll just wing it from there and see if anyone has stuff for trade, but as I mentioned earlier I'm a sucker for chips myself. I also verified that I do have access to All Dress Ruffles and various Ketchup type chips (one was "Spicy Ketchup at least") so if that's something I should add to my bag please say so.

    Late to the party I know, but would that exchange offer still be on the table? Aside from the obvious Poutine and Tim Bits, what would I be able to offer in return?

    I think whatever you mentioned here would be just grand. Bring it at 2 PM on Friday to the queue/food court! I can't find the Baby Back Ribs Chips, but @rascal seems to be on it! Those ribs ones are amazing, @rascal, GREAT call!

    If you could bring some stuff from Napoleon's bakery and it would survive, my childhood would love you forever.



    The only thing I have right now is some sodas that have been specifically asked for (with some extra cane sugar Dr. Pepper which has been placed on lock by Dr. Pepper corporate), some of the banana variety of the best marshmallows of all time, and I'm going to try to find some honey bbq Cheetos that were a hit at a recent camping trip. I'm also going to get some locally made peppered beef jerky, it's kind of my favorite and says "south."

    I can't promise you Kinder Reigel (I know I've seen them, but I can't remember where/when), but you should bring Doodle's Waffles cookies if they are close to you to the meet-up. They sound delicious and local.

    I'm not sure if they're available, though I assume they are, but has anyone ever tried "Death Rain Habanero Chips". I can eat maybe THREE of these spicy badboys before I'm brought to tears. Anyone want some?

    I might be able to...I just need to figure out what will last the longest. I am flying back to the east coast a few days before PAX. I don't know if it will last til Friday, are you coming into town early? I could still find something to bring as far as that's concerned. I would love to try tho! :-P

    Ahh, the elusive Sweet Chili Thins! They're creating a perception filter to throw us off their savory scent, but I easily see through their yeasty disguise. Yumminess is imminent.

    It's okay! Just a thought. I'll have to see what other NH foods I can dream of. ;)

    I will be coming in on Thursday! You going to any of the pre-PAX stuff? Don't trouble yourself on my account, though. I know that donuts can get kinda icky after a day or so. . .what do you think about some Napples, maybe sealed up in a baggie or container?

    Nice!

    I'm not into spicy foods so how about a bag of your Baby back ribs and your Prime steak in exchange of my All Dressed and Spicey Ketchup? Looks like Friday 2pm at the food court is the place to go for the swap!

    Indeed it looks like I'm set for the chips, but just name something you want and I'll make sure to bring it on Friday. Got any suggestions for things that are cheese flavored? Maybe I should start looking into the sugar side of the equation as well :)

    @Frugus, we've got ourselves a deal! -- I'll bring you a 10 oz/283g bag of Herr's Baby Back ribs chips + a 10 oz/283g bag of Herr's Prime Steak chips, in exchange for All Dressed and Spicy Ketchup chips, yum!
    I'll be at the food court promptly at 2pm, as I'd like to attend the 3pm presentation.

    I'll also bring an extra bag of the Baby Back ribs and the other flavors for everyone to sample -- they are even more delicious than Vicechan has described. I opened a bag yesterday afternoon, and 3 of us chowed through most of the bag in about an hour. If you want your own personal stash, let me know soon, so I have time to head back to the store.

    Woot! And yes, I realize that everyone will probably have a heavy schedule so I will do my best to respect anyone's appointments. Just Tweet something if you can't make it, I'll do the same (though I expect everything to be fine).

    I was going to bring some Honey BBQ Cheetos, but I don't know if I will be able to find them. But, what do you think of these guys? I don't know if they taste different, but they're kind of Texas/Latin American style, so I'll be bringing a bag of these for sharing. I don't have any requests, but I wouldn't mind trying some Coffee Crisp!

    All right, team! My last post before the International Food Exchange! It looks like we have a great amount of stuff coming in and I'm really excited. I don't know how the queue/food court is set up, but I'll try to post up at a table around 1:30 to secure a spot. I'll be looking like Peeta from Hunger Games, probably. (lol)

    I'll try to post on Twitter where I'm specifically at (@vicechan), using the #PAX and/or #PAXFoodExchange. I'll try to make it obvious and throw my goodies in the middle of the table. I'll cruise the area before settling in case anyone wants to set up camp before I do and we can gather a loot pile.

    I'm bringing:

    3 bottles of Cane Sugar Dr. Pepper
    1 bottle Sangria Senorial
    Aforementioned delicious banana marshmallows
    2 bags Doritos Dynamitas, one spicy nacho flavor, one chile limon. @Frugus gets first pick.
    1 bag honey barbeque Lay's.
    Anything that grabs my eye between here and the meet-up.

    Things I'm bringing specifically for people to the meet-up, if you're haven't mentioned showing, let's try to make arrangements!

    Diet Cheerwine for @chaosisorder
    Henry Weinhard's Root Beer for @tvethiopia
    Milka Milkinis for @girlgamer88
    Cupcakes for @Atalla (but we'll probably meet beforehand)

    This should be awesome! Looking forward to seeing everyone. I endorse sharing and think it'd be great for some sharable items if we could sample and see what everyone likes/thinks. Does anyone maybe want to bring plates/cups/napkins? I'll try (or try to gank from the food court), but I'm worried about getting the food there intact, forget about accessories. ^^; Travel safe!

    The coin lunch is at 12:30, so I assume I'll be done 1:30-2ish if we get prompt service.

    You guys better eat some of these. Otherwise I'll be washing down a lobster roll with heart-stopping amounts of fudge.

    Agreed, this was super-fun! I think it was a rousing success. Truth be told, this was my absolute favorite part of the con. You all are wonderful, it was good to meet all of you and I'll be doing Twitter/Facebook adds in the next few hours/days.

    I'd love to hear what people thought of the things that they traded for and consumed later.

    Shout-outs! <3

    @atalla, the Napples are still good! I just had one tonight. What did you think of the cupcakes?
    @chaosisorder, I think your China offerings won the Unique award. Thank you so much!Part of me regrets not taking the flavored popcorn. Not the part that likes a microwave that I can use later.
    @Decius, we kept talking about you. You didn't make it out, did you? Now that I realize what the hell is going on, I would have put together a care package to you and brought it to BYOC.
    @frugus, I really really appreciate the effort for the Tim Bits. :) I'm very happy to say that I've had them and they held up well.
    @rascal, amazing call on the chips and it was good seeing you around! Did you go to the Namco Bandai party? The line was long and I gave up.
    @Reverend Snide, I'm going to buy some bread and then tell you what I think of the Vegemite, can't wait!
    @Sillyzombie666, I saw you when I was at Anime Boston. :P Nice sign! I have a picture of you in the Portal that I'll PM you or something.
    @tvethiopia, I'm sad you couldn't make it and sadder that I gave up and passed along your root beer. But seriously, PM me and I can send off that Henry Weinhard's. They are too good to not try.

    Thanks to everyone who showed and traded/contributed! Let's do this again next year!
