What are some things you can get in America, but not in the UK?

Hey guys!

I have a friend over in England and she's always sent me little things (British chocolates and such!)

I didn't get around to sending her a birthday gift and I feel horrible! She loves America and coming to visit. So I was looking to surprise her with a little package of things she could only get in the US.

Anyone know of some things you can get in the US, but not in the UK?

    Like other people have said Twinkies are something everyone over here has heard of, but find it mega hard to get. Also, Tootsie Rolls. I've only ever found them in this one specialist candy shop, and they are soooo gooood!

    Lucky Charms cereal.

    We used to get it back in the 90's and then they stop exporting it over, so now when people I know go to the states they bring back loads of Lucky Charms for everyone to remind us of our youth. Good times.
