Food as souvenirs?

By Kim Traveller October 19, 2017

Hi - I'll be visiting Budapest soon. I usually like to get "edible souvenirs" when I travel - some kind of food item like a spice or an ingredient that I may not be able to find in the USA - however, I also need to be aware of what I'm allowed to bring home, so I can't get meat, cheese, or liquids (at least not much liquid). What are some things I could get?

Answer the question

Hi folks -

I have gone and returned, and accepted my fate that paprika was what I was going to end up with. However, I also found a stall that sold a separate gulyas seasoning blend as well, and got that too and called it done. (You may be pleased to hear that my tales of the ruin pubs impressed my Brooklyn friends who said that they actually sounded COOLER than Brooklyn!)
