I have not been to a World Market, bummer! Those kinds of stores (international import grocery) are pure heaven for me, I wish I was nearby one. Any/all wrapper contributions you have would be so gladly appreciated and adored, i cant thank you enough! Also, i just heard a rumor - does Australia still sell CRISPY M&Ms? If so, could i send you some $$ to have those and all the wrappers sent to me??
