Moving to Nairobi from US - foodstuffs to take?

sharonslau | Feb 16, 2012 01:13 PM

My family is relocating to Nairobi for a few years and as I begin to think about packing I'm wondering if there are foodstuffs I should be taking along. We don't eat too much processed food, Oreos, etc. and won't miss that too much, but I am wondering about American staples - brown sugar, maple syrup, graham crackers, etc.
I fully intend to embrace the local grocery, but sometimes there are things you really wish you had... The bags of chocolate chips (and resulting Toll House cookies) we had as students in Italy were like gold!
Thanks in advance for any input!
