American snacks you can’t get in Australia

This type of post might become an ongoing topic, as there seem to be a number of American snack items that are unavailable in Australia.

The featured item for this week (especially with Halloween coming up), is the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, and Reese’s Pieces. Enter E.T. (If you haven’t seen E.T., it’s time).

Happy day for our friends in the land down under! You can buy your Reese’s Peanut Butter cups and Reese’s Pieces from the U.S.A. and we can ship them to Australia for you.
