My last trip to Israel involved a lot of shopping.
One friend asked me to get her a postcard. Another asked me for a Liel Kolet CD. Yet another asked me for d’vash tmarim (date honey).
Then came the random suggestions, like fruit flavored orbit gum…
Of course, the staples of Bamba, Bisli Grill, Crembo, Mekupelet and Pesek Zman were a given. “Cow chocolate”, the chocolate with a picture of a cow, was also unavoidable. I had to bring Israeli-style waffles (lik Loacker but tougher), with both sweet lemon paste and chocolate paste fillings.
I grew up on hard marmalade and pink shredded coconut, so I had to bring those. My favorite cereal, Peanut butter Captain Crunch, also made the list. In a fit of ambition, I brought along Amba and Lafas.
