What? Toilet paper!!!! Come on!!! I happen to find toilet paper in Brazil much better than the ones in the US. Go figure!!!


Well done, Rachel. The question is not is on the list, but is there anything NOT on the list? Americans sometimes simply do not appreciate our consumer choices available not only in the stores, but on-line. More ironic is how many of these items are so much less expensive here. Maybe you can tell us if there were particular products that were overwhelming popular requests?

E-commerce is being seriously negligent. Net-based suppliers could reap substantial wealth by providing comparatively inexpensive means for Brazilians to obtain the products on your lengthy US vacation shopping list. All they'd have to do is price the larger-ticket products somewhere between Brazil and US cost. The essential idea would be providing an online price that's cheaper than the US price plus round trip ticket price.


Whoever posted that happens to find Brazilian TP better than American has a whole different view of TP. Probably this person likes disintegrating Tp while wiping the butt or even blowing your nose. One of the reasons I will NOT live in Brazil Is the national quality of their best tp called Neve, it is an expensive crappy paper. Even public restrooms here have better TP than in Brazil, lets be honest.
