Home, and what to hoard as a Texpat?

shanagain | Jul 4, 201502:11 PM     11

So we may be leaving Texas. I was born in Abilene, lived in Round Rock when it was still its own little town, grew up wandering limestone creeks and the Aquafest while Willie played in the background (a touchstone memory, as it was the first time I'd ever heard of, and tasted, a fajita - roughly '78ish), and eventually made my way up and down the East Coast before settling back home.

The last 25 years have seen us comfortably living in rural western Texas, about an hour from where I was born. But now I'm looking at real estate in Long Beach, CA.

And planning to pack at least 10 packages of Morton's Chili Blend when I go. There's just nothing else that serves quite as well as the base flavoring for my chili. (Or enchiladas, or carne guisada...)

After posting in the Blue Bell thread I realized I'm curious, what's your "Oh, wow, but they don't have ________ here!" regional Texas item?
