What products have you have enjoyed in the US, but are difficult to find in Europe?

Jump to last reply

I am from the St. Louis area (midwest US) and will be traveling to Europe this summer with a tour group. I wanted to get the tour guide (female) something from the US that is not readily available in Europe (as a hospitality gift).

I was thinking that a food product of some type might be my best bet... but I am not sure what is not typically found in Europe that would be enjoyable to receive as a gift.

So my question for you is: Is there something that you have purchased when visiting the US that you thought was wonderful, but is difficult to find in Europe?

Or have there been any novelty items that are only found in the US that you think someone from Europe would enjoy, or find humorous?

This is a strange request, I know. But, I did not know who else to ask.... Fodorites are always so helpful.

Thank you in advance for your responses!
