AMERICAN FOOD  
Several of the people visiting me asked me what foods I want from home.. After much thought, I came up with this list of things that are transportable (ie, I really would kill for some things that just can't be transported, like Taco Bell bean burritos):

EZ Cheese
Carnation Instant Breakfast
Twinkies
Fruity Pebbles
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
Campbell's Bean with Bacon soup
Sweet Tarts (the giant size ones!)
Jolly Ranchers (OMG)
Torani's vanilla flavoring syrup
Cheese ball (the kind with the nuts on the outside)
Vanilla Dr. Pepper!!
Goldfish

With the exception of tiny packs of goldfish, I can't get ANY of this in Japan. At least that I've found. I even asked the realtor if he knew where to get some of this, but he didn't know. (He didn't know what any of it was either.. X_x) It's so hard living without normal foods, sometimes. Sometimes I just want normal foods. My favorite foods... Speaking of which, why is there no Taco Bell in Tokyo? (where civilians can go in???????!)

So, I talked to work about the realtor. They're working on it. That's all they can say, and they'll keep in touch. Dammit, why are they being so difficult? I'm getting pretty upset about it now. It's frustrating, and they don't seem to understand that I HAVE to set up internet before I move in, and it might already be too late. Why can't they just bring me in today? X_x I'd rather be there and look through books or something. Gah. I'm getting REALLY frustrated!!!!!

I think I've seen Reese's PB Cups before in Seiyu or something. Because I have this memory of eating it last Christmas in Japan. xD And there are foreign food shops like Kikuya, which have a LOT of snacks transported from other countries.

EEEEEEEHHHHHHHHHHHHHH?!!!!!!!!!! Really??!! *spazzes* Seiyu? Where is that?? I must go today!

Also, where is Kikuya? I'm familiar with Seijo Isshi, but most of their snacks aren't American ones, sadly. ;_; I've been to a few other ones, like the one in Tokyo Dome..

Well...I suppose I could get you some Taco Bell...but it'd be a few days old by the time you got it... .^^*

But I'll definately pick up some stuff for you! .^___^
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 12th, 2005 08:24 am (UTC)
If you could figure out how to like... refridgerate the bean burritos I would LOVE you. Though it's probably not possible. ^^;; But at this rate I'm honestly almost desperate enough to eat ones that HAVEN'T been refrigerated. X_x

That, or I'm this close *holds fingers 1 cm apart* to arguing my way onto the military base to get some Taco Bell. I WANT!!!!! I WANT WANT WANT! Almost so bad that I could cry. I miss Taco Bell SO MUCH!

I'll see what I can do~~~
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 12th, 2005 08:25 am (UTC)
I am deprived.. ;__; Did you know that a can of refried beans here costs about 500 yen?!!!?! There is something seriously wrong with that, when I can pick up the same can for 35 cents at home! X_x

Do they have Dr. Pepper there already? Because usually you'd just take vanilla syrup and dump it in regular Dr. Pepper. Might save the rest of us some cash in transporting the soda...plus, soda explodes under heavy pressure.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 12th, 2005 08:32 am (UTC)
They do have Dr. Pepper, though a lot of stores don't carry it. The problem is the vanilla syrup. I can't find it anywhere! X_x I had to have friends bring it here for me last time and I'm all out now! ;__;

Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 12th, 2005 08:52 am (UTC)
Is Nagoya where the AFB is? I keep hearing online that there's a Taco Bell in Nagoya.

Wow o.o;

I've personally never had Taco Bell before? =O Heard of it, never tried it. I'm not sure it even exists around here XD Must be an American thing.

*patpat*

I could probably be tempted to send you hard candies and non-meltable stuff if I knew your address. :D

Get a Reese's FastBreak! I grew up on the cups and loved them so much, but the FastBreak bars are so, so much better! :D
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 12th, 2005 07:46 pm (UTC)
I like them.. but I think the Peanut Butter cups are so much better.
Sana-chan: smirksana_chan on July 12th, 2005 02:09 pm (UTC)
Ooo perfect... I'll see what I can get to bring for ya XD. That's crazy that they don't sell everything over there... and no Taco Bell?? T_T

Hopefully everything works out with the realtor soon :\
C L O V E Ridyllica on July 12th, 2005 02:43 pm (UTC)
Oh my lordy. They don't have Taco Bell in Japan? GAH. XD [sob] I will be craving for a taco...for months nonstop... [sob]
Goldfishes....oh god...I love those. :D I'll try to send you some food items, if I can since now I know how to drive, and I can send you things at the post office. :D I already got your address; :D I'll see what I can find at Publix.
I don't know how to freeze a bean burrito... XD

It is not the end of the world without the Internet. I am sure you will find something to do before it gets hooked up. Try taking a walk around your new neighborhood.

I thought you chose that apartment with the tiny bathroom?
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 12th, 2005 07:49 pm (UTC)
I chose it but they wouldn't rent to me. They didn't want to have a foreigner living there. I guess I forgot to post about it. X_x

Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 12th, 2005 11:56 pm (UTC)
OMG really?!?!!!!!! I wonder how I can find out if these stores exist in Tokyo!!!! :O
Chiakichiaki777 on July 13th, 2005 04:36 am (UTC)
Wait they don't have fruity pebbles anymore? That's horrible...
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 13th, 2005 04:44 am (UTC)
Maybe they do? I havent' seen them anywhere. ;__;
Saeriskippytoad on July 13th, 2005 03:12 pm (UTC)
So.... there´s a Taco Bell in Tokyo where civilians CAN´T go in? O.o
Bethany☆彡 (べス): 1nen triosourangel on July 14th, 2005 02:32 am (UTC)
I'll see what I can shove into my suitcase. ^__^ Good look with the apartment searching!
