Snacks NOT available in PA?


I've signed up for a snack exchange with someone who lives in PA.

I was hoping to send them some things which were not readily available locally.

Are there any snacks you see ads for or hear other talk about and you think to yourself "man, I wish I could get them in PA" or "man, I wish I didn't have to go to x-state to get y-snack"

I'm in Toronto, Canada.

I would really appreicate any help.

Thank you in advance!

  1. Something I love from my childhood that I can't find in PA is Cadbury Flake. I don't know if they distribute them in Canada, either. Brings back memories of visiting my grandparents in South Africa. My mom would always buy me one during our layover in London and a few times during the stay in South Africa.

        What is french toast crunch? Sounds good.

          It was discontinued in the US but they still have it in Canada.

            Oh. I've had that. I liked it. It cut my mouth up so badly, though, I didn't go back for more. But it sure was good.

      2. Some of the Cadbury chocolates aren't available. I know I always bring back stuff like Cruchie bars, Lion Bars etc whenever I find them (UK or Canada etc).

        All-dressed Potato Chips would be at the top of my list though. We just don't have that flavor in the US.

          Bacon-flavored potato chips jump immediately to mind.

          As for candy: Coffee Crisp bars! (For that matter, Canadian Kit Kat bars, which are very different from their US counterparts.)

        2. You may also get some suggestions or ideas if you post this on the Philadelphia board as that board seems to be more active.
