    Twinkies aren't bad. I've had some. A little plain tasting, but not bad when you've got a case of the munchies, or watching Die Hard! :p

    Reeces Peanut Butter Cups!!! OMG!!! Don't eat those things! They're like CRACK to me! People over here think Peanut Butter and Chocolate together...Ewwwwww!!! Trust me, they are a little calorie-stuffed slice of heaven!!! Same with Peanut Butter M&M's!

    =P~=P~=P~=P~=P~

    BTW, dunking a Twinkee in Everclear is just a crime against good taste there Dave. [face_laugh]

    oooooooh, yes, for me too, please! they don't sell that in the UK, do "they"?

    what about grits (?) and spare ribs? does that qualify as original american food?

    Yup Phil, you can get grits in Altanta for sure. I think there is a place near the con that you can order them for breakfast as well. :)


    Does this mean you might be coming to Dragon Con afterall Phil!?! :D

    I am making dodgy deals at this very moment in an attempt to put the money together. I got my little blue thing confirming my ticket for the Con itself, and it sparked the very real need in me to get there!

    Hey, if any of you want some stuff sent from the U.S. I'd be happy to send some over. I can get Twinkies, Penutbutter cups, grits all that stuff all day.

    I'm going to try to go to Dragoncon this year, it's only about 2 hours away from where I live.

    I've noticed that ticket prices have really dropped since the holidays. I have to book a flight soon to go to Nashville this March and if I do it soon it will be about $230 for a round trip ticket. :D


    I suggest to all here who want to go to D*C to look into prices now for that weekend, if possible, the the best prices.

    Yeah, best I've found so far is £417 still a bit too much, though much better than the £560 I was looking at before Christmas!

    Never heard of it! I'll see if I can find it.

    ive got a suspicion that if I were to book from the states they would be cheaper
