Food items to bring for a move away from Chapel Hill/Durham?

Sadly, after 6 years of living in the "southern part of heaven", I'll be moving away from Chapel Hill this summer for a new job in Wisconsin. I'd like to bring some local food goodies with me, but I'm drawing a blank!

Any suggestions for local/southern non-perishable food items (or food-related items) to bring with me? Bonus points for things that movers can't destroy in transit!

      Unfortunately you have to use it up quickly. I stored some in the fridge when I moved away from NC and it grew bacteria on top given that there's what I presume a layer of sugar.

    2. Are you talking about Milwaukee, Madison, or someplace more remote? When I go north, I miss biscuits for breakfast. Wisconsin is pretty great, all in all.

        I'll be in Milwaukee, so I won't be stuck in a total food desert and I'll have easy access to Chicago. From what I've read, the foodie culture is really growing in Milwaukee. That said, I'll miss many of the things that make the Triangle so unique and tasty!
