Tea, Worcester Sauce, Baked Beans…what do you take?

As we prepare for our move to South Africa, I have been thinking about what to take with us. What little thing from home that I won’t be able to find in Pretoria will make life in the early days (or, in fact, in all days) just that little bit easier? As I shopped this morning I found the perfect answer:


I posted a picture on Facebook, and everyone agreed this was the one thing they always packed when they moved abroad.

We’re just so British!

But I know it’s not just us Brits –  every nationality has something they miss from home. I have been reading a thread this week on the Grumpy Expat forum about smores (some sort of combination of crackers, marshmallow and chocolate I understand).  And, as I have a British friend about to move to Texas, what do those of you who live in the States take in particular? I look forward to reading your answers!

  1. Too funny as I was just looking at my blueberry flavoured tea here in Canada and thinking that I have to take some with me to Egypt. I probably will and then I will discover that it can be found everywhere in Cairo! You just never know until you get there sometimes. At least, we will both have our tea!

  2. Oh, s’mores! Graham crackers, Hersheys chocolate & melted marshmallow… one of my favourite memories of the USA. My daughter and I miss skyr, an Icelandic yogurt. The Danes have tried making it and selling it here and it just isn’t the same. I also miss dark rye bread, which is not the same stuff you get here.

  3. My favorite cookie mix, Good Seasons Italian Seasoning, Jif Peanut Butter, Duncan Hines Cake Mix. I do find each year that the list gets smaller as we grow accustomed to the local brands.
