Default food and drink you'll miss

I just spent the last 4 years in the UK and really missed the following array of food and drinks;

twisties
beef sausages
cheezels
bacon that does not sweat when cooked
cheetos
large packets of crisps (chips)
proper pork spareribs on the rack
shapes
fresh fruit



Since returning I do sort of miss;

Iron bru
those stodgy pies you eat with a pint
pints
proper strongbow
sausage supper
ufo's

What will or do you miss?

Send me your address and I'll send you some to sample....

I refuse to buy from the British shops here.... most things are out of date and the price is ridiculous.
