You have a friend that lives out of town and they're missing life in Shreveport-Bossier City, LA. You want to send them a care package representing NWLA. What do you put in it?

If you have a loved one who's away from home and feeling lonely, one of the best ways to brighten their day is to send a care package. And since it's kind of hard to box up and ship a pothole, what should you send so they're not so homesick for Shreveport-Bossier?

I asked my friends for recommendations for the perfect care package from Shreveport-Bossier City on social media and they had jokes. No, I'm not looking to send ammo, spent casings, or bulletproof vests. I wanted items that would evoke the very best memories of life alongside the Red River.

Here are our definitive top ten items in no particular order came up with.
1. Community Coffee
2. Southern Maid Donuts
3. Down Home Sausage
4. Monjuni's pasta sauce and olive mix
5. Johnny's Pizza
6. Crawfish
7. 'Geaux' cups - Mardi Gras and other plastic 'Louisiana fine china.'
8. Tabasco sauce, Tony Chachere's Cajun Seasoning, Louisiana Hot Sauce, Crystal, etc...
9. King Cake
10. Strawn's icebox pie

My personal honorable mentions include a muffuletta from Fetita's, the shrimp aurora and shrimp toast from the Monjuni's on Louisiana Avenue, the Shrimp Buster from Herby K's, the steak and au gratins from the Cub, a margarita from Superior, and the two for one special at Cajun Daiquiri! Did we miss any? I'd love to hear from you! Shoot me a message using the 'chat' function in our free app or send me an email at erin.bristol@townsquaremedia.com.
