Looking for Minties candy from Australia, anyone have some room in their luggage?

Subject pretty much says it all. Looking for Minties and rather not pay Amazons crazy prices. If any one in a country selling these at reasonable prices has some room i'd kill for a bunch of super sized bags of them! PM me if you are interested in helping a fellow PAXer in Minties withdrawl :)

    I might suggest http://www.reddit.com/r/snackexchange/ . Pretty reliable so far!

    At previous PAXen, there have been international snack exchanges. But I think one didn't happen at Prime 2014. The demand is probably still there, it likely just needs a person to organize it.

    Dang yet another subreddit i'm going to have to subscribe to. Didn't even know this one existed. Still I know we have Aussies coming just hoping one or 2 can help out :)

    Re the snack exchange yeah none last year but there was one the year before and the year before that.

    Edit: Well /r/snackexchange is out they require 600 karma and 3 months on reddit. Time is no problem but only 34 karma in a year and a half lol. Not a big poster don't expect I'll ever reach 600. Sad face.

    Thanks for the link! That's a nice sized bag but they are in OZ so shipping might be a beast. I suspect that might be AUD though. If so makes it a bit cheaper since its about $.74 USD to one AUD right now. Geez just noticed that is 2.2lbs!

    edit --

    Sad news their cart won't ship to the USA. I have submitted an email hoping for better news.

    edit 2 --

    Got a response back figured i'd post here in case anyone else tried these guys.

    The Professors unfortunately do not export overseas, we purely distribute our goodies around Australia.
