I'm off on a school trip to New York this easter, and I intend to bring back some food articles that you don't get in the UK. So far on my list I have Lucky Charms, BBQ potato chips (no decent ones in the UK) some Herschey's(sp?) chocolate (compare with Cadbury's). Can anyone suggest some majestic food of yours to return with?

Also is there anything in NY that I should do while I'm there? We have a day where we don't have anything planned and can go off and do what we want, to an extent.

You don't have lucky charms? wtf? Is it because Ireland is so close (or should I say connected?) to the UK? Well get some mcdonalds, burger king, white castle, wendys, KFC, taco bell, pizza hut, arbys, panda express, sonics, popeyes, dominoes, and portillos.

There are some other places i missed, but with just those trust me, you might as well say goodbye to your parents forever because either you'll die from a heat attack or you'll be so fat your parents will disown you. My god we eat bad but trust me, it's worth it.

EDIT: Oh and look for a guitar Center while in new york, the ones in major cities are ENORMOUS and I know the one in LA has a bunch of handprints of rock stars on the pavement for the entrance.

KCGIG1 is totally with the program eat! Oh and you might want to see that statue there, the one about liberty or something like that.

I can't believe there's only guitar centers in America, seriously it's just sad...I have 3 near me!

Also do you have corndogs in England? If not try some, they're good.

We used to but they stopped doing it a few years ago. I loved Lucky Charms. I have a mug of LC that changes colour when hot. Sadly it doesn't work anymore. But it was fun.

I realise this isn't relevant to the initial question...

Yup, a lot of actual New yorkers barely see the sites I believe. I live by chicago and I don't think it's anything special. My cousin lives by LA and says no one goes downtown because it's a shithole. Again KCGIG1 is with the program.

I would agree with everything apart from the chocolate. British chocolate > American chocolate


I had some when I was in Vegas, it was pretty manky. I want to bring back some for my friends who aren't going.

Buy some Oreos, no shops in Scotland sell them I don't think.


The sell em' in Oz, they gotta be somewhere up there. They definetely have to be in England.
yo.

I'm in NY for 5 days I think. We're already gonna be hitting the major places (Statue of Liberty, Guggenheim, etc) and we're seeing a broadway show and going to a basketball or ice hockey game.
We do get Oreo's in the UK, but they're hard to find. I doubt there would be any in the 'tourist' part of NY, but are there any good music shops, aside from the major megacorp ones.

Try the pizza in NY, you have to fold it so the grease runs right into your mouth and not your hands when you eat it.

Forget the Lucky Charms. Forget the Hersheys chocolate. When you get to NYC find the first sidewalk hotdog vendor, and buy a hotdog with everything on it. Sauerkraut, onions, chili, relish, the works. IT'll mess your stomach up if your not used to it, but once youve had one of those hotdogs you wont want any others.

CBGB's ?? i think thats the birthplace of punk and in new york i believe

Make sure you stop and get an authentic slice of New York pizza...theres nothing else quite like it.
