    And absolutely delicious if you're not worried about dieting or trying to bulk. Greasy spicy fatty goodness in a stick.

    That's a really good idea! Although if I brought some over...it'd be difficult to not eat them myself...

    Bring a big box of cookies, chocolates (though these might melt in the summer heat) or sweets that can be put out in the staff room and shared. It's definitely best if they are individually wrapped. Your colleagues will generally bring back something like this when they go on holiday somewhere and place one on each of their colleague's desks (if they are not there) or give them to them in person if they are there (accompanied with lots of bows someone else said). Don't bring individual gifts-it's awkward if you don't have enough-best to get something for the team.

    I will tell you now after studying abroad, the biggest hit was reese's pieces or any kind of peanut butter chocolate. With the Japanese and with the foreigners in your area.

    I brought little desert snow globes and keychains and stuff when I studied abroad. People get pretty excited when they learn you lived near cactus and desert lol

    Honestly, stay away from anything chocolate that would melt. When I came this past August an ALT friend of mine bought a big bag of milk chocolates and the entire things turned to liquid.

    Stick with the old faithfuls: anything individually wrapped, small, and won't melt.

    now imagine the people who don't fit into that, and are actually shittier.... that is ITIL.

    Of course you can bring babies. If they're under two it's usually free for domestic and about a $100 tax for international. Just say it's sleeping. No one will complain.

    Agreed. Gods know, there should be someone to keep order around these parts...

    Don't bring anything too sweet unless you plan on eating it all yourself.

    I brought a big bag of locally made salt water taffy, even knowing that I didn't have to bring anything (my five year pred said I needed to, for some reason...). My supervisor ate a root beer flavored one (didn't know I grabbed any of those?!) and acted like he'd been poisoned. It was a wonderful first day.
