I love Ambre Solaire sun screen. Can't get it in either the US or Canada. Only in Europe/UK.

I want one of these:  http://www.amazon.com/Kotatsu-Blanket-120×80cm-xFF09-2-4person/dp/B009LDQBL4/ref=sr_1_14?ie=UTF8&qid=1405222100&sr=8-14&keywords=kotatsu+heater

It just seems like a great thing to sit under when watching TV during cold winter nights.

Hippos! Our SNCO bought a case of them in Germany when we were crossing the pond on our last trip. He saved some to hand out for Christmas.... I may PCS to Germany just to eat these everyday.
My inner (r-word) is having a field day with this one.

PG Tips tea.  Fortunately I can get it through Amazon.

In Japan, I loved a little bird-shaped pastry called Kotori.  I also miss yuzu flavoured everything, but mostly the candies and juice.  The udon bowls were also delicious.  Good thing I love to cook!

From France, it was the crème brulée.  I make my own now, but darn that one was heavenly.

Chicha morada (sp?) from Peru.  It's made from blue corn with a little fruit juice and sugar. Sort of like a mildly fizzy grape soda.

Ghirardelli hot chocolate.

Pop Tarts, we can get them but they're super expensive which means they become a treat rather than something to keep in the house to satisfy a junk food craving.

Crumpets. I can make my own, but it's one heck of a learning process. I must have made ten dozen before they were really right. Sometimes, I'd just like to be able to pop down to the supermarket and pick up six instead of spending half a day to make 36.

Double cream. Crème double as they sell it in Germany is just not the same. And single cream? They've never even heard of it over here.

clothes shopping in Australia.  I'm about 6 foot tall so I have to go to speciality shops in the UK but in Oz I could buy clothes in normal shops, it felt heavenly to not feel so different.  Also, shoes.
