San Diego Specialties -4 Overseas trip to Philippines

Rocky Road May 19, 2013 11:40 AM

Heading to Philippines, would like to bring some can, jar, or other types of food products that stay safe for a while AND are specialties of SD.

Any ideas? I haven't lived here that long so may not be thinking about this right. Help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Avocados would be great if you can do it. Maybe some of our fine microbrews, as well.

      Years ago, our friends in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, asked us to bring down U.S. Prime beef steaks.

      I filled up a Styrofoam ice chest with dry ice and the gift survived the long flight and the customs inspection.
