Are there some local or regional foods that you love and can't get anywhere else?

I can't find Pepperidge Farm top split hot dig buns or PF Bread out here, we used to get all the time when we lived back east.

  • I miss all my 'American' junk food that I can't get here. Especially Funyuns, white chocolate reese's peanut butter cups, snow crab legs, and Twinkies. I do have my parents mail me some of the non-perishable items, but I inhale those within days =P

  • We always stock up on Goetta (a spicy sausage/oat mixture) and Cincinnati chili when we are up there. Strangely enough, not only does my husband love it, but the kids do, too.

    Personally (and yes, I do know that I'm insane) I crave English foods a lot (meat pies, mushy peas, lots of chocolates, nice beers) and occasionally Spanish. Most anything else I want, even from California, I can get. Except In-N-Out burgers.

  • I lived in FL for a few years and they didn't have Tastykake!!! They only recently got it down there, my mom said. And no WaWa, but they are spreading. Oh, and Taylor Ham was hard to find, too.
    And if you don' know WaWa is a gas station/convenience store with GREAT coffee and dairy and Taylor Ham is porkroll.

  • When I was in college in Upstate NY I could not get Ranch Style Beans, Rotel or Tony Chaceries. My mom would mail me cases for my bday and Christmas. I came home and found I missed and could not find Duke's Mayo and Dinosaur BBQ sauce. Now, I live in West Tx and I miss andouille sausage. Can't get it here. :(
