I have had some help with this one. The observations of other PNWerners who have gone to other places to live have created this post.
Apparantly you can not get good Chinese bbqed pork in other places. I am talking about the stuff with the red outside which you get in a piece or sliced from the store or a Chinese resturant. An Uncle who has lived in a few other random states (in big enough cities it should have been there) always tries to get this when he comes home. I remembered this and got some of it at the store this morning.
Also Maple Bars are apparantly non existent outside the PNW. I learned about this because Bro In Law moved to Charleston, SC. They get doughnuts when big wigs show up and he asked why they never get maple bars. They said "WTFare maple bars?" and he told them to "google image that shit" and after some research it became apparant they exist only here.
It is so easy not to notice little things when they aren't present but I have been sure to get both of these things while back home.
