Edibles

If you are my swap partner in a swap that involves food-stuffs, here are some ideas!

CANDY: I LOVE candy! If there is candy around, I'll be eating it! I prefer chewy/gummy candies, not so much hard ones. Some of my favourites are:
• twizzlers
• haribo (anything!)
• hi-chew
• "swedish" candies (fish, berries, etc)
• Wonka candies (nerds, bottlecaps, etc)

TEA: I drink SO much tea! Usually around 3 liters a day. My favourites are:
• chai
• fun flavours of roiboos
• earl gray
• lavendar (actual lavendar, not just flavoured)

OTHER GOODIES:
• timtam cookies
• pocky
• cookies & cream

VEGETARIAN

Allergic to ginseng & catnip (weird, I know!)

Wishlist

•I love vintage union stuff, especially banners and buttons. I would be happy with any union, though postal unions would be especially fantastic!
•I would love to get Kawaii stuff! Especially older sanrio, though not Hello Kitty or My Melody (my favourites are Keroppi and Bad Badtz Maru). I have been searching for sanrio stationary and am not having much luck at all. So, if you have any awesome kawaii stationary laying around, you can send it my way!
•I also really like Diddl stationary, which I also can't get here.
•If you are in Aotearoa, I would love love LOVE anything to do with L&P! I was lucky enough to visit your amazing country several years ago and I seriously couldn't drink enough of the stuff. SO GOOD!

Thanks in advance!

Dislikes

•Cheap washi/deco tape - please don't send me washi from the dollar store or Wal-mart; I quite dislike it and have no use for it
•Coffee (can't drink it, though like coffee themed items)
•Makeup (I don't wear any)
•Earrings (my ears are gauged, so normal earrings don't fit)
•Scents (unless it's all natural, I get crazy bad headaches and likely won't even open a package of there is any perfume)

Comment: Sorry about your headache - hope it isn't something that happens frequently. I had killer headaches until menopause - so something to look forward to, maybe! Just a note on disappointing movies - we have discovered that there's a general rule about disappointing movies: the more they're advertised, stay away. People go see good ones from other peoples' recommendations. You hate to spend good money for a bad movie. Thanks for your interesting letter and enclosures. I really love how you decorated your envelope! Thanks!

Comment: Charity, this was such a special swap! Thank you so so much for the recipe (and additional cards - what an awesome idea!), bookmarks, awesome sticker, and your lovely answers to the questions! Unfortunately I have a lot of penpals at the moment and am unable to accept any more, however if you'd like to be email penpals, I'd be happy to 'write' back to you that way! Thank you again <3
