What's the one product you miss from home?

What's the one "product" you miss from your home county that you cannot find in Switzerland?

I am guessing some Americans will say their "bed type" whilst the English will say "great scones", but what else?

Good choice, sir.

Square sausage is available in Malta too which pleased us greatly when we lived there

Not chav enough for Castro but they're decent crisps.

Au contraire, Rabbit yes, delicious by the way, you can get tinned tuna but that is rarely eaten because you get Tuna fresh enough to be considered almost alive.
Never seen square sausage though.

Believe it or not, in most cases it can be replaced with this:



And now please feel free to kill me.

EDIT: Sorry, I'm trying to insert the picture of a (gasp!) Maggi bottle, but for some reason it won't go through. I tried five different pictures from different sources in four different browsers on three different computers. They show in the preview but not online.

Just imagine there's the photo of a Maggi bottle up there, the absolute horror of horrors on EF (besides Aromat).

Essex girls and slags from Croydon.
For the uninitiated they can be easily identified (in central London) as they are the ones sharing jugs of cocktails.
