What household or grocery items do you wish you had shipped to post?

Baking goods like chocolate chips, but almost everything else we use is available here. - May 17, 2016
Nothing. - Nov 23, 2014
I know it sounds odd and you cannot ship it, but STEAKS!!! No good quality steaks are available in Bulgaria. (recently Metro started selling Argentinian beef). Anything other, anywhere is just cheap cr*p. - Aug 16, 2014
Clothing (it's very expensive here and little choice even with GAP now open). Other things I would ship would be Crest toothpaste, which they don't carry in Bulgaria. - Jun 3, 2011
Dog food; not a lot to choose from here and it's expensive. Toothpaste; they don't have our typical American brands that I like. Spices for salsa (salsa seems to be a big deal here for some reason for the Americans). Spices for Indian food, and even instant spice packets to make various American dishes. Almonds. They are expensive here. Dried fruits, though they do have those here, in small amounts, but not a whole lot of variety. Saftey pins; can't find them here at all. Craft stores, convenience stores don't really exist here, so anything like that. - Oct 30, 2009
None, you can find pretty much anything here. - Feb 9, 2008
