I can't - that's the problem. I got all excited when I found the stuff you are talking about... until I cooked it... I mean I don't get it - pigs are pigs right?

Stuff of the Gods.
Best eaten at any English footy match, on a cold wet Saturday afternoon.

[QUOTE=Geordie Lass;10223647]Walmart (if you can brave it that place gets a bad rep!) has instant pudding mix (the butterscotch one is lovely) - it's not angel delight but it's almost as good!

Mr Kiplings cherry bakewells... I *love* those... and haven't found anything similar.

I've got my supply of Angel Delight and cherry bakewells arriving on Saturday!!!

I do, on occasion, make my own version of cherry bakewells when the craving gets too much! LOL I'll have to make you some when I see you!!

Sounds like you need to get yourself on the Fortnum & Mason export register.

Don't eat them myself, but I'm told that these guys do a good one if you're ever over the border in Buffalo:

And a nice crispy duck! (not together)
