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

Nearly everything is available. Even things that tend to be hard to find overseas can be found here, although at higher cost, such as peanut butter, chocolate chips, tortillas, bagels, etc. There are specialty Asian markets, and I've heard of though haven't visited a Mexican market, etc. - Oct 2021
