This week my friend gave me a box of Green Tea Kit Kat candies that he picked up for me while he was in Japan. I am not a big chocolate fan, but Green Tea Kit Kats are amazing. I’m currently strategizing how I’m going to ration them out so I don’t eat them all in one sitting. Aside from being absolutely delicious, they are extra-special because I don’t believe you can get them outside of Japan. It is one of the few things I can’t easily pick up at the corner store…and I like that.

I don’t want to knock the global market place that allows people in one corner of the globe to share their goods and culture with another person across an ocean, but there is something to be said for the the scarcity of some products. The harder something is to obtain, the more it becomes a treasure worthy of the hunt.
Are there any favorite products from overseas that you can’t get without a plane ticket? What do you think about having a completely global market place? Leave me a comment and let me know.
