    caviar ^-^
    some dark chocolates especially the air-ated ones (look like Aero chocolates but better quality) -- Red Oktober is a famous Moscow confectionary
    other things like dried mushrooms/berries might not be allowed through customs

      Just for posterity sake -- my parents just got back from Moscow and brought really good "pastila" and "zefir" (like marshmallows by different texture -- less poofy and fake), the ingredients are sugar, apple puree, (if flavored cranberry then also cranberry puree), stabilizers.
      Also its worth trying different breads -- especially recommend really aromatic "borodinsky" bread (with coriander seeds).
