Canadian Comfort-Food abroad

Post Tue Nov 13, 2007 5:53 pm

If you could eat your favorite comfort food while abroad what would it be, and why? What lengths would you go to to get it if you knew it was available?

Mine would be true-blue kraft macaroni and cheese. KD man. haha. When I was in scotland I found "kraft" mac and cheese, but OMG it was the worst thing i'd ever attempted to eat, it smelt like roadkill when I made it.

I would have done anything for a proper burger in italy too, with all the fixins. I felt seriously protein deprived there lol.
Dance, sing, floss and travel.

I have a care package on its way to me now from my Mum & Sister (my Aunt is driving down). Its got Shreddies, Tim Horton's coffee and hot chocolate, Cadbury's chocolate, Bits n Bites and probably a few other things.

I hadn't thought of KD. I wonder if I can get them to stick some of that in now.

When I lived in North Africa I craved peanut butter. (We only had the homemade - roast and crush the peanuts yourself type). I almost cried when my aunt sent me a small jar of Skippy for Christmas. The other thing I missed was pasturized milk. There was plenty of fresh off the farm milk (but that was never cooled quickly and always had a near sour taste) or sterelized milk (gross!)!

I bring back Timmy's English Toffee Cappuccino powder, Excel Polar Ice gum, and a couple Skor and Crispy Crunch chocolate bars.

To Ehcanuckfans - I have a recipe for Nanimo bars and it is excellent. I've tried the mix and they don't come close to the real thing. Want it!
