Back to the original question, not sure they do Alpen, but they have lots of different mueslis
I have no idea if I am right on this one, so please tell me to pull my head in if necessary... but I thought gammon steak was what is known here as ham steak, as in thick pieces of ham to be fried up, if so you can get them from any supermarket or butcher.

*slinking back into kitchen to finish making fish pie in case I have the wrong end of the stick...*

BTW if you can't find a muesli you like out of the Hubbards range then there must be something wrong, they make dozens of different sorts.

Waynrpfry, not sure if you use it, but Henderson's relish makes an occassional appearance on my plate.
I know it'll be a thing of the past, took me long enough to get some to the Isla Wight.

Have you tried the NZ version of Irn Bru - its called Ice Cream Soda and you can get it in 2 litre plastic bottles like all the other fizzy drinks.

Looks like you are going to have an interesting meal trying them out then

Seriously, go to any butcher or supermarket and test them out.... they might be just fine!

I really dont know why Brits expect to find the same sort of food in another country 12,000 miles away with a different culture that is dominant .Sure there are similarities but to expect to be able to get Yorkshire pud and Bangers and Mash or liver and onions like back in the s*i* old poo of UK then forget it.Learn to adapt ,we are the foreigners not the natives .Use the local produce and stop being what you are ,adapt as we shall when we get there in 2 weeks .I am looking forward to a new life ,new horizons ahead and most of all settling in and living the life .Foget the UK and live for today .
