Here at Stuck at The Airport, we’re big fans of the fun, locally-themed souvenirs that are for sale in many airport souvenir shops.
We know there are alot of people who collect shot glass or key chains as a souvenir from the places they visit. But we’re especially fond of the bit more creative, locally-themed chocolate candy “poop” that is for sale in these shops.
We know these items are great gift items and big sellers, but we suspect a lot of these candy food gifts never get eaten.
(Although in my house, they’d be categorized as ’emergency’ food..)
Examples in our ‘souvenir poop’ collection include everything from Big Foot Poop found at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to the Koala Poo spotted in at the airport in Sydney, Australia.
Now we have one more packet to add to the collection.
At McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas this week, we found some Alien Poop mints in the Area 51 section of a souvenir shop.
Silly? Yes, of course. But when you are Stuck at the Airport, entertainment comes in many forms.
Please be on the lookout for fun, inexpensive, locally-themed souvenirs in airport gift shops and send us a photo. If your snap is featured here during Souvenir Sunday, we’ll send you a fun travel-themed souvenir.
