    There are no foods I miss from UK or Europe but I do miss the arrival of Spring and those long north European summer evenings.

    Storm Force marine sell Rocky Mountain Suncream in different sizes and are well priced. I buy it from the yacht club but go to their website at stormforcemarine.com and you can contact them.

    Both my mother in law and mother bring this out or give it to friends to bring out. Ironically you can buy it in Mothercare in Oman but not here. haven't tried the Mothercare own brand to see if it's the same.

    Reese's are also available in City Super and Ruffles SnV are all over the place!

    I only miss the Dutch stuff like stroopwafels (though Starbucks do something close), drop and Haagse Hopjes.
    Though some boittles of Old Peculiar wouldn't go amiss!

    ahhhh no Ruffles SnV are NOT everywhere. Lays SnV are, and Ruffles Regular and BBQ are around but not the SnV. If I'm wrong and you've seen them everywhere, please enlighten me.

    As to invisible deodorant...I think I've stood next to several people wearing it

    I've bought Dutch stroopwafels in Hong Kong, honey filled ones. Can't remember the brand but the packet was yellow with a bee on it.

    Also bought Terrasana Organic waffles, two varieties: honey (honingwafels) and hazelnut (hazelnootwafels). But they are not cheap, $30 a pack.

    There is a possibility that I may have them confused!

    Yup- I found some Canadian maple syrup ones but them, and the honey ones, just ain't the real deal. Thanks though- we have lots of kaaskops in our office and building so there is a supply at times!

    Hey what happened to Aunt Jemima syrup? You used to be able to get it here, not you can only find maple.

    Speaking of things that have disappeared, anyone else notice all the deodorant sticks have mysteriously vanished, only roll-ons and sprays left? Odd
