As an expat German I often find myself in need of true German bread. Though it is "only" a drive of 3 hours to go to Germany it is impossible to have good bread in Flanders. Not that they don't have bread here. They have. But it has neither the taste nor the texture nor the scent. Drama! You? Anything like that?

Sometimes I have this feeling about barbecue, no place in Boston ever approached what you got down south - Memphis, Kansas City, Texas, St. Louis, Carolina, you can argue which style is your favorite and that's all well and good, but they are all superior to what Murph and Sully can cook up in the Hah-bah

Perhaps it is a taste of home you are craving. Homesickness of sorts? Food tastes different from country to country. Basic ingredients aren’t produced/grown the same way. This is the same when I go to Mexico. Bread, corn-based products and meat taste very different compared to USA. Food is a lot less flavorful here.

Yep, but with groceries. The chocolate roll cakes sold at the neighborhood grocery are bizarrely good for the price, the baker even put real, melted chocolate in them once. I miss that when going to larger supermarkets.
