Offer : aussie food stuffs

I'm heading back to Australia for a whirlwind visit.

I'd like to offer my services to one or two people who are desperate for something they haven't had from Oz in years or are craving big time. I'm talking small items like a bag of Allen's lollies or a couple of cherry ripe bars etc. Nothing big or bulky!

Re: Offer : aussie food stuffs

That is very kind and generous of you. Were you thinking of a first come, first serve offer or a competition of some kind? Enjoy your stay

Re: Offer : aussie food stuffs

The only things I'm craving big time are 4n20 meat pies and sausage rolls, dim sims, chocolate Big Ms, but they can't be flown across the world and aren't exactly SMALL...

...actually I'm just craving everything

Re: Offer : aussie food stuffs

I thought about taking you up on your generous offer.

Then I got stuck in a loop thinking about what it really was that I missed the most, and got fixated on the idea of a proper Pad Thai, which I haven't found here, but isn't transportable.

But I wanted to say a sincere thank you for offering.

Timtams in a variety of flavours are to be found in Coop Bahnhofstrasse in Zürich. Ok, not cheap but so many that you can buy some for work and others "for work"
