We are now less than 60 days until the next PAX. It seems like a good time to start the PAX East 2012 International Food Exchange thread. This thread is for those of us who whilst coming to PAX to share our love of games and gaming culture, also want to share our love of food and our desire to have those things we can’t normally touch. I’m of course talking about prepared foods from far away foreign lands (like Canada, the UK, and ɐıןɐɹʇsnɐ) that travel well on airplanes. This thread is dedicated to the exchange of those foodstuffs.
Now if you're unfamiliar with this thread, you can check out the past two.The Penny Arcade Expo International Food Exchange - PAX East 2011The PAX International Food Exchange - PAX Prime 2011
Those threads resulted in many great meet-ups being arranged, and many delicious noms being om'd. We even had strange Chinese candy from a far away land....China. Few were harmed in its consumption.
Thanks to the continuing popularity of this, I'm back to bring you the "official" thread for the exchange and delicious foods from all over. This is meant as an open forum to post what delicious noms you are bringing to PAX to share with your unfortunate American cousins, and for our awesome American hosts to make requests. Intra-Commonwealth transactions are also allowed of course. You can make exchanges, offer cash, or in the spirit of the PAX community simply share for the sake of sharing. It's your call.OP Update!
The wonderful denizens of this community have arranged a meetup for the exchange of noms. It will be at 2:00PM (14:00) on Friday in the queue/food court!Note: Please be aware of the laws for importing and exporting foods, both in your country of origin and destination. Links to the three main governing bodies we will be dealing with can be found here. Any others? Suggest them in thread and I'll add them.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection
HM Revenue & Customs
Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA)
We can also take suggestions as to interesting things to take home, and probe around if a certain delicious nom is or isn't available in great USandA. It's all up to you.
Protip: Do not try to import Kinder Surprise into the US. They will be confiscated by CBP and the parts within are deemed a choking hazard under US law.
