Citymarkets (and bigger K-markets) have a US-shelf somewhere, that I think has (someitimes) had Captain Crunch. But I'm not 100% sure, and the selection varies from time to time.

I haven't seen any of those in Finland. Try eBay and order it here.

You can order them on Amazon UK, and you can bring it into the country without problems as its within the EU. Munch munch away :-)

We don't have any here but for a good variety try some cereals at Lidl. I love "honey balls" minus the horrible name lol!

The K Market in Kamppi has Cookie Crisp for 7 or 8 euros per box. But it's on the American section shelf-- not the normal cereal aisle. Haven't seen Captain Crunch anywhere but let me know if you find it!

I have seen captain crunch at Behnfords once -a while ago. Your best chance at finding American cereal is either Behnfords, Kampii K-market, or Jumbo's CityMarket. I was recently at Jumbo and found a lot of American products. The price isn't reasonable but, if you really want it... you'll give in :) :ochesey:

I have not yet found any Cap'n Crunch here, but I imagine if I do it will be pricey as all hell. Back where I lived in the US, I could get a small 8 serving box for just 1 dollar. Do you have someone that could maybe mail you some once a month or so? I plan to have my mother do that for me when I can..

Thanks for the replies everyone but unfortunatly I didnt manage to find any capn crunch anywhere and buying it online seems pretty money wasteful to me :(
But the good news are that recently cookie crisp came to Finland just in the nick of time and u can find it at any local store near your house :)

Does it taste the same as the US kind? Once I made the mistake of buying Froot Loops here, expecting it to taste the same..I mean, it's the same brand, the same mascot, the same appearance, etc. so it should taste the same, no? Bleghh, tasted nothing like the US version. Same thing with Pez...tastes really different, not as good, as the US kind. It's all bland and Euro-fied or something. Maybe it's the lack of weird artificial additives and colorings?

I have yet to see any in my area so far, so if I may inquire, what stores around you carry the Cookie Crisp?
