Do you want me to post their links or rather only in PM if anybody asks for it?
Hi Antibes
not your fault about Tesco's, they can be very fickel with what they supply, some months back a friend found warbouton's crumpets, in Tesco, thought great, but the next week, went back and they (the crumpets) were never seen again. I often fly from Budapest so will make time to look in Tesco nr the airport. Like I posted earlier I now know how to make my own syrup, so some good has come of it.

Hi if you go on utube and put golden syrup in, there is even a video of an australian cook making it, a word of warning when you add the boiling water be careful as the mixture spits, so do it slowly. I also used 4 quarters of the lemon, I think he only used one, and it gives the syrup a lovely lemon taste. You can use the lemon after in recipes as chopped peel, nice for hot cross buns.

In the tesco in Veszprem they have an international cooking section which includes Tesco own brand weetabix and also tesco multipack cereals (mini eight packs). In the British section they also have Heinz red kidney beans? (never saw these back in the uk), Tesco's finest tikka masala and Korma sauces, pg tips, self raising flour,marmalade, peanut butter and some other really weird stuff that I have no idea why it is on the shelves in that section. All at inflated prices of course.
What I am missing is microwaveable rice packets particularly tilda, all I can find is boil in bag rice.
Did manage to find coleslaw in Interspar

No, I've never been keen on Marmite and whenever I used to go to Burton on Trent I always seemed to take a wrong turn and end up in the road where the Bovril and Marmite factories are located.
I should probably have got more Oxo cubes though. When I was in Scotland I didn't have much selection of things for hot drinks so some evenings I would make a mug of Oxo stock.

The Tesco in Siofok also has most of the items listed. The Tesco cornflakes (not the VERY cheap ones) are ok. We also buy the Scottish oats from the International section too as I like my porridge in the morning. Especially either with stewed fruit or banana and walnuts on top!

Oh the memories.... My gran used to make me hot oxo when she ran out of Bovril, always laced with black pepper.

Weetabix (the real McCoy) is sold at branches of Müller (in Kaposvár, Keszthely, and probably elsewhere) they are less expensive than Tesco (who have stopped stocking them in our local branch).
We also prefer the Cornflakes sold by Lidl to the Tesco ones.

Hi
I'd be interested to know which spices are in short supply: herbs? Asian spices? What about Worcestershire sauce? Just making notes for when I visit Hungary this summer in my small car.
Thanks

Never would I have thought of trying Muller! Will take a look next time I'm in Nagy. Eurofamily have heinz sauces and salad creams, peas, kidney beans but no beans? Perhaps if enough people requested them then they might start stocking them though to be honest, the Tesco baked beans are actually okay. They also sell tortillas in Eurofamily and they are quite a bit cheaper than Tesco.
