Let's dip Dracula

Love foreign supermarkets as much as we do? Next time you're abroad, pick up something. We might photograph the item and include it in our 10th anniversary issue!

We're asking readers like you to pick up a souvenir from a foreign supermarket and mail it to us along with your full name, where you found it, and any other noteworthy details: Budget Travel, 530 Seventh Ave., 2nd Fl., New York, NY 10018.

If you're curious about what makes a good Supermarket Souvenir, check out this one that Joan Burns of Silver Spring, Md., picked up on a recent trip to Romania:

"I always look for gifts in supermarkets, and the market in Brasov, Transylvania, didn't let me down. I couldn't resist bringing home packets of Let's dip Dracula, named for Romania's infamous son. I don't read Romanian, so your guess is as good as mine as to the ingredients—but with the Dracula reference, I'm guessing it leans toward a "spicy" mix to share with guests. Even then, as Romanian cooks avoid spices at all costs, I doubt we'd call it hot!"
