There are a bunch of different ways to flavor your standards buttercreamk for a filling- all shelf stable. here are a few I've used:

Almond- Use almond extract in place of vanilla & add almond pastry filling (I use solo)
Espresso- Use Espresso and or Khalua in placre of vanilsaas & milk/ water
Lemon- Lemon exract in place of vanilla & grated lemon zest (this works for orange too)
Strawberry or Raspberry- Use the appropriate extract as well as a little powdered flavored jello.

I pick out a candy bar that sounds good and chop it up and add it to regular old buttercream just to change it up some. Peanut butter cups, M&Ms, Heath, any one will do. I've found that they taste great and people are pleasantly surprised at the crunch/texture.
