    Andy, if this is for your new store, and you stock peanut butter M&Ms, you will have a customer here for LIFE.

    How often? If it's like once or twice a month, I think I could pull it off. I'll just have to get over my phobia of shipping chocolate.

    I think I can do it... Assuming I can get the candy home without eating it.

    How does that work? Can you even ship food through customs? I can walk into Costco and buy like a 60 bar box of candy for absurdly low low prices. I assume customs drug dogs would find it in case candy tarantulas were crossing borders or something.

    I wasn't aware you didn't have American candy. I assumed that you could get a snickers bar basically anywhere. I know they were absurdly expensive in China, but soda was cheaper than water so it is some kinda bizarro world there.

    While the peanut butter m&ms are good, I've always preferred the peanut ones.

    UK candy > American candy.

    Flakes? Crunchies? Love.

    You can't ship perishable materials. I don't think candy exactly falls into that category.

    I get that Coca-Cola whenever I eat in Mexican restaurants, the stuff in the glass bottles. I always wondered why it tastes better!

    I got the hook-up for crunchies here. Mills Fleet Farm sells that type of candy in bulk, for way cheap. Not quite as good, but pretty darn close. I haven't found an alternative for flakes yet, so my uncle sends them to me from time to time.

    Mmmmmmmmm Mexican candy. I too, like Dayvcon, live right next to Mexico....literally. I'm like 2 minutes from the border and can usually score all kinds of candy and other Mexican curios. Most of my cousins live on the East coast and they get packages of stuff every so often.
