I’d like to pick up some unique souvenirs while I’m visiting the Detroit area. What can I get there (maybe a non-perishable food item) that can’t be found here in southern California? I prefer not to do t-shirts or sweatshirts.
Sanders hot fudge is right on the money. Comes in milk chocolate, swiss (dark) chocolate, and bittersweet chocolate. You can find gift boxes that contain all three. Milk chocolate is delicious and the most popular. Bittersweet even better.
Going to Canada can be fun, but be sure you’re prepared. Make sure your car rental company will allow you to take the vehicle across the border. If not, you could be subject to a hefty penalty.
I’ve included a link to a very good site that, I think identifies all the states wineries, Hestonian. Unfortunately, you’ll have to carry back any local wine you purchase, some archane law about wines in interstate commerce prevents shipping.
real maple syrup from Michigan is readily available.
If you want to stay in the food category, in almost any grocery store, you can find Sander’s hot fudge. There are 4 flavors, but the most popular is milk chocolate.
Good luck with your souvenir hunting!
If your a beer drinker go over to Canada and purchase great beer at good prices in a unique shaped beer bottle -stubby .
Petoskey Stones. It is the state stone, and can be found in some stores here. Not sure just how totally unique it is, seeing its a fossil LOL.. N. Michigan Maple Syrup, copper or Iron ore from the U.P., sand from one of the many great lakes beaches, Automotive something, not sure what though, other then pictures. Neat question, don’t know if my answer is all that neat, but I tried LOL.
