anyone miss candy from their home country?

Post by BklynBoy »

I always offer my friends in cambodia the opportunity to order something and ship to my apt, then i bring for them. A few times they asked for candy. A friend of mine from London asked me for Twinkies lol
Got me thinking. Are there places in PP to get imported candy?

Another friend from the States asked me to bring Nathan's hot dogs, Sour patch kids and twizzlers

Anyone miss Candy from their home country . Also awaiting Candy Bar jokes..lol

Never candy, but I'm not much into the sweets.

As a New Yorker I am sure you can appreciate what I do miss.....NY Pizza.

nice!!! I went to that Mamas place once awhile back..promoted as if its NY or something? but wasn't like it at all..Maybe misremembering. I agree w/ you about Pizza. I think its related to the water?

Also bagels but a friend of mine said they have bagels in PP that are good. I will have to try when I get there

Mamas doesn't do pizza. For American candy Mike's Burgers has a large selection.

Not Candy so much. Amber and her sister Chrystal are another story.
The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

Mama NY Deli is just alright for sandwiches. Not special, what you would expect at the price point though. Don't remember them with Pizzas.

Brooklyn Pizza is fair. I do like Larrys for their Pesto Pizza.

I know.. sorry if wasn't clear.. Was just explaining where he was from.. he said.. I want some American candy shit.. lol

There used to be a candy bar called "The Reggie Bar".. based off Reggie Jackson from the NY Yankees back in the day. Wish i can find that one..Regarding requests, thats why i just say order what you want and ship to my apt. I do want to help and its cool to do but if you get 3/4 requests, it adds up
