    I think I saw someone earlier in the thread who said they were bringing Yuengling, but I can't remember who it was. If that turns out to be wrong, I can get it for you.

    I got in contact with that person, but thanks!

    This is for anybody 21 and over.. I will also be asking for ID.
    I have been able to buy Pineapple Sky Vodka if anybody is still looking for this.?
    Also I can get my hands on some random bottles of beer if anybody is looking for something in general.
    Jumping on the Beer Bandwagon here too.

    Washington State has over 175 craft and microbrews. In my neighborhood alone, there are over a dozen (7 of which are inside a 1 mile radius, making for a most excellent beer stumble). There are way too many to even begin to offer specific brewereies here. Just let me know if you want something from this neck of the woods.

    Id be really interested in some of your local beers in that area. Maybe a 6pk.

    I think I'll be bringing a 6-pack of mixed local stuff regardless to share around but we're bringing soda too so I'll see if we've got enough weight allowance for another 6 pack. Otherwise we'll just all share like good little monkeys!

    Happily on Sabbatical. Don't bug me.

    Necco wafers are delicious and I will fight anyone who disagrees. Also, are sky bars rare? They're everywhere here, including the liquor store.

  • sillyzombie666sillyzombie666 massRegistered User regular
    hey this may be the best idea, i think we should all get some sort of cups so we can sample the sodas and other drinks so we dont spread any germs

    @Coan We have Pearson's products in FL too, I was so excited to be able to contribute something and then realized people had already jumped all over it for you. My family is from MN and my grandma used to work at the company and recently my mother was in town on a visit and found them and freaked out. Otherwise I probably wouldn't have even realized they were still around. My mom actually swore the company shut down years ago and she still bought one and ate it :shock: I'm glad I can tell her otherwise now.

    Nothing exciting comes from FL, but I saw some Kinder stuff the other day and I will look into it and I know I can get my hands on some Koala Yummies.

    I may actually be able to get some of these, but I can't promise. There's an import store near me that sells Kinder, but they get different things all the time. I'll get a small stash to bring.


    Also, I'll re-up my request for some Basset's Jelly Babies... I think this is an England thing, but it could be a Europe thing.

    Also Japanese snacks, but especially Puccho.



    Finally, maybe we can all bring something with our forum names to help match faces? Name tags? Or we can just free-for-all. :3

    I'm planning on bringing beer to the exchange. As long as we're not publicly vomiting all over each other or running around naked with FREE BEER painted on our chests, I doubt they'll care.

    I don't see anything for it on the LCBO website, so doesn't look like we have it anywhere in Ontario...discontinued or at least they dropped carrying it at least.

    I haven't grabbed a forum badge, I might go old skool and wear my Necrowombicon staff badge (<hipster>I was going to pax before it was a thing </hipster>). If not, I've still got a black mage pin that i'll try to keep on my jacket.

    From my understanding of public drinking laws, they won't care if we're exchanging alcohol. Drinking it is another story. If you want to drink it, wait until you get back to the privacy of your hotel room. Don't want to be a buzzkill, but we don't want to run afoul of laws, rules on the private property of the BCEC. I don't want any trouble from authority figures in either case.

    If any locals want to chime on this, go ahead.

    You can't actually get this year's forum badge yet. They're available at pax and the Thursday night before. They don't cost anything, just follow the directions in that thread to pick one up.

    I meant i hadn't posted or anything and i'm lazy :P Somewhere in there I'm pretty sure I read that all i need to do is post to get one with my name on the back or something, or I've missed the cutoff somewhere for that too (I've only somewhat skimmed the thread). If there are extra completely blank ones that are available to pick up, I might grab one if i'm in that area.


    back on topic of not-badges (since thats another thread) looks like http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/black-oak-double-chocolate-cherry-stout/46058/ is what should be available when I come down. If there is any extra interest, i'll bring more than the single 6pack I plan on grabbing now.

    You know what would be FANTASTIC in the way of beer/ciders? Last time I was in DC, I had a cider called "Original Sin Tart Cherry Cider" and I've been looking for a bottle ever since to share with my BF. If anyone local finds it, please grab a bottle and I'll make sure to reimburse you with $$ or food (I think it's like $12 per bottle).

    I am awful and haven't posted pictures yet, but my current haul is beer for @ironysparkles, nut rolls for @Coan, some Koala Yummies, and a couple hazelnut KitKats. I looked for Kinder Bueno White but couldn't find any. I'm probably going to make another store run this weekend and will grab some assorted tasty goods.

    Did anyone happen to get a hold of Damtuh Ginger Tea?

    I found a store that supposedly carries the Original Sin ciders near me, but the cherry they have is called Original Sin Cherry Tree Cider. Is it the same or was there a specific tart version? It sounds delicious.

    I didn't find any Kinder Bueno White, just regular and also picked up some Koala Yummies and nut rolls. I think @aikoe has a World Market too.

    That's probably it. It's crazy good. Ironically enough, it's actually made in Oregon where the cherries grow, and shipped back to the parent company on the East Coast. But we can't buy it in Washington (!?).

    Excited!

    I don't know if any Europe people managed to find those delicious little boxed treacle tarts, but one of them would make me so full of joy...

    I'm coming from the Jersey Shore, so I figured I'd grab some salt water taffy. Any other requests, just let me know! Not sure we have anything else considered 'special', besides good bagels in all flavors and delicious NY style pizza... the former of which I could bring if anyone wanted some, haha. The latter... would be messy and cold by the time I got to Boston.

    @Triene I could easily bring you jelly babies, assuming I manage to resist biting the heads off the irresistable little bastards. and they don't count as some kind of delicious security risk at the airport.

    They had Bueno White in a local Canadian convenience store i used to go to. Assuming they still have some, I will see if I can pick some up:)

    Hazelnut Kit-Kats and those Tim Tams sound amazing. I'm really looking forward to this, all!

    Right now, I just have Mega Stuf Oreos and a local beef jerky for the masses. I have specific items for some of you. :) I know they're all over the place in America, but any International folks interested in BLT potato chips? I think they're delicious.

    @LexiconGrrl I acquired a bottle of the cherry cider.

    I went to another store to try and find Pucchos and could not. Note to self, when towing around a three year old, do not take him in to unusual foreign grocery stores because you might be able to breathe through your mouth and somewhat ignore the smell, but he cannot. Nor can he stop talking about how bad the smell is or waving his hand around. However, if I ever need to find a Durian locally, I know where to go now.

    The German store I went to was better, I found some Katzenzungen and Super Dickmann's. I have tried neither, but one appeals to my childish sense of humor and the other is a box covered in kittens and pretty irresistible. I found some Milka scoops too. Still no Kinder Bueno White.

    Other than the cider, nothing I have is really for anyone in particular so hopefully some people are willing to be forced to take some of this stuff off my hands.
