any milk or white chocolate. No plain dark chocolate, though. Specially looking for Cadbury bars (I used to be addicted some years ago, but now I don't find them anywhere).

Other snacks and candies:

  • Cereal/muesli bars

  • Cheese flavoured crackers

  • Nut mixes

  • Crisps. I love Lay's, onion, vinegar, mushrooms, spiced,...any flavour except tomato or ketchup

  • Not much into hard candies or gum.Jellies and marsmallows are ok.

The things in this list are just suggestions. In fact I'm pretty much open to anything as I'm sure there are a lot of wonderful flavours out there I've never tried, so feel free to send me something new.


Latest news

I've stopped doing private and package swaps, postage is too expensive, sorry. So only flat mail for me.

I've also quitted slams, fb's and all those. And penpalling :( It's a shame cause I love receiving letters but it's the other part, the writting about myself, the one I can't bear with
