I seem to recall people saying that you can get it in some 'British Speciality' food stores, but I suspect that it is not widely available.

Food: well, shortbread, of course, malt whisky, clootie dumplings, selkirk bannocks, Dundee cake, lots of local sweeties. All of the above are usually packaged strongly enough to survive a journey. BUT, I can't be sure what you'd be allowed to take into the country. I know, from personal experience, that Australia are VERY strict on foodstuffs being brought from overseas.

Irn Bru should be ok, but no " fresh " food, or anything which can contain germs dead or alive.

I think I've seen Irn Bru in certain stores (US) but by all means, it's not common. I gather it depends where your friends/relative live, near a big city or in the boonies.

I am reliably informed that you can get it in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
I've also seen it in Russia and New York.

not sure you can take lots of fizzy drinks in your suitcase in case they pop. Haggis both vegetarian and non vegetarian, fudge, black bun, crowdie

I seem to remember on the BBC news a while back that US President Clinton was photographed drinking a can of Irn Bru which I thought was rather amusing as well as making me proud of Scotland!
