Really wouldn't put chocolate in the container.....

It gets pretty hot along the way!!

They sell vinegar here too you know. Even Sarsons, if you really need a brand.

Doesn't chocolate get shipped abroad by container ordinarily anyway (pretty much like every other consumer product known to man)? Why would it be any different in a removal container?

yes

she may find she can buy them here and save shipping costs but some types aren't available such as pantene ice shine although all other pantene products are

They sell shampoo, conditioner, bars of soap, vinegar, chocolate, and all the other assorted stuff people are asking about here in Australia. Why people feel the need to fill a container with things they can get here is beyond me. Won't you eventually have to get used to the Australian version if you plan to live here permanently? Of do you intend to have your shampoo/soap/chocolate/vinegar shipped over for the rest of your life?

Not aimed at anyone in particular, but it always confounds me.

Tea Bags! Ship Tea Bags. Loads of em. You will thank me. If you dont drink tea - ship them anyway and send them to me.

Seriously the tea bags here are gash. And its not the water either. I had a box of PG Tips brought over by a friend from a recent trip back to UK and I tell you what........that first proper cuppa......aaaaaahhhhhhhhh!

Ah - but according to Dorothy you should accept low grade tea because you are living in Australia now...

It confounds me why people think that moving to another country means you have to give up every single thing that you possible could and embrace everything about that new country. If that really was the case, the English would have a single dish of fish and chips and curry would not exist.

Why one earth should people not have their creature comforts?

Guess what - I''m bringing over Colmans mustard because you can buy English mustard here but I prefer the taste of Colmans. Am I thus someone who knows that postage is cheap, and the internet is your very best friend...?

To the same extent, do we extent the thousands of Aus ex-pats in the UK to only ever eat Marmite (irrespective of the fact you can buy Vegemite, Marmite is far more widely available).

I'll ship over whatever I think. There are many new products I will adopt here, but there are others that don;t taste the same - and decent chocolate is one of them...
