Default Food to bring from Canada?

Does anyone know if you can find in Dubai:

gluten-free pasta, and other products
molasses
maple syrup
summer savory (for any Maritimers out there, is there a market for this? Should I bring a suitcase full of packets?!


Any other suggestions?

I don't care so much about brands, ie. I don't need Red Rose tea if there is an aisle full of tea at a grocery store. But if there was no tea at all, well then I would bring it!


Thanks in advance

GF products are readily available in Spinneys, Waitrose and Park n Shop. As is maple syrup and I'm pretty sure molasses. Though, the quality of maple syrup may not be that you are used to. It may also be a rip off.

i've had to search around a bit for molasses tbh. even the organic shop is often out of stock but the best place i've found them is park n shop in jlt. they carry organic blackstrap molasses and price is very reasonable.

real maple syrup is very expensive here. i usually bring at least one litre back with me every time i travel to canada [costco!]
