I could send you a few packs if you like.

Thank you both for your kind offers and yes I am in Adelaide, but I actually needed about a dozen blocks for a Science lesson on friction. Was going to teach it next week but am currently rethinking that idea.

My daughter's visiting the UK in January so will send her back with a suitcase just for jelly. Wonder what customs will make of that one!

Sounds much more interesting than when I was in school

Edit - how about just making a jelly in an ice cube tray and using those?

Thought about that, but it wouldn't be as strong as in its raw state. I need jelly with muscles.

Think I've just about ditched that plan now, moving onto modelling clay, far more accessible.

Is this at Super Sisters Iga in Joondalup.I went in there once and couldn't believe the English variety you could get.

Yes, saw Cream of Tomato soup there a few months ago and stocked up on a few jars. Then saw it at IGA Carine Glades, plus other varieties such as Leek & Potato, Cream of Mushroom and a family-sized Vegetable soup. More exotic varieties of Baxters too, Broccoli & Stilton, Cream of Asparagus, but the Lobster Bisque was disgusting. Handy to have in the cupboard between batches of home-made. Heinz Cream of Tomato is one of my comfort foods, so can eat it most of the year, though I think not in summer in Perth. Also treated ourselves to Walkers Roast Chicken crisps and 2 flavours of Hula Hoops. I've also found various Fentimans soft drinks in Subiaco, but not dandelion & burdock - I must email the importer about that. A lot more UK cheeses too, including a proper Cheddar, Wensleydale & Cranberry, Lancashire with some fruit (can't remember type), Sage Derby, Red Windsor, Double Gloucester with Chives and Huntsman. Not foods I'd buy all the time, but nice to see more British products available here. Love the new Carr's flatbreads.

Must be an IGA thing, ours just got an English section and its really good, not as good as th one in Joondaloop but I do check it every time I go in and usually pick something up, I was very happy to get Branston Sandwich pickle.
