I can't really add much more to this than what has already been said. Have fun on the island . . . if you get a chance go off the island and explore some of the other areas. A lot of folks never do Schoodic Point which is part of the Park . . . and by doing so you can do a virtual cache located there. A short jaunt down to Deer Isle and Stonington and the stunning trails there is also worth the time.

You are correct -- food (and any other smelly objects such as candles, perfume, etc.) is a bad idea for a trade item. Pencils, school items, state quarters would be a great trade item.
Whenever I visit the island I always try to make two stops in town -- one at Bill and Ted's Chocolate Emporium (I know that's not the real name, but I grew up in the 80s with Bill and Ted and their Excellent Adventures) and Alexander's Clockshop -- it's like traveling back in time (asthmatics and those adverse to pipe smoke should probably stay clear of this place though.)
