It kind of sucks when you have a craving for something and it's virtually not available where you are. Austria's foreign imports are very minimal, so it's very rare to find something I'm familiar with. Most brands I knew as a kid just straight up don't exist on this half of the planet. I'm still getting used to it. Even something as simple as "Gingerbread". Ask for gingerbread and you get something not even CLOSE to the Canadian/American counterpart. Theirs is a white, not sweet or tart type of cake bread, the one I'm used to is the dark sweet and spiced version. I was whining about this for a while now so Markus bought some molasses for us to make gingerbread cookies that I was actually familiar with.
Some things you just can't remove from me, and random cravings of food back from Canada is one of them. I have this happen to me a lot. Sometimes I just want my crappy canadian products lol A great example is Kraft Dinner which is a really REALLY american Mac and Cheese. Thankfully that stuff IS importable via Amazon of all places but most of the time the only way I can get stuff is via a family member sending it to me.
Oh heck even my toothpaste has this issue. Many brands of toothpaste make me feel sick when used, so I found this ONE SPECIFIC brand in canada that works. And guess what doesn't exist in Austria? Guess who has 8 boxes of this toothpaste that was brought over via airport.
of course, on the other hand I am gaining new tastes and things I like as well. Groiggn and Gluhwein being two new winter season favorites. Both incredibly unhealthy lol
