Never even heard of them so googled it. Chocolate from M and S
You can see I never did my food shopping there

And no I don't know where you can get them! Maybe you could move onto something else? I seem to have become addicted to Jet Planes since I got here...

Must have read it wrong-I'm sure it said they were chocolate or maybe that's just my brain playing tricks on me
Glad you found some- I've still got one more tube of Fruit Pastilles left before I have to go and hunt for some. Can't believe they've lasted so long [probably due to the Jet Planes taking their place in my heart]

Can't help with the Percy Pigs, so sorry, I do hope you manage to find some. For me it's Fry's Peppermint Creams....over a year since my last bar of it and I'm still struggling with the withdrawal symptoms .
Sadly it's the only chocolate I like...nothing else will do.

ooh I love Percy pigs, one of the best things to come out of M&S so pleased to hear they can be found over there

Where is Bramptons?

for pineapple lumps though, mmm starting to see why the waistline is expanding

Also could not live with out English Marmite, have found it in some supermarkets while over there so obviously am able to migrate

Who'd have thought it? There's even a page on Wikipedia for Percy Pigs

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Percy_pigs

Bramptins have a few stores around Auckland and an on-line shop

Unfortunatey they is out of stock:

Readily available from Coles supermarkets in Australia as Peggy Pig and Pals. Couldn't believe it when I saw them and then I read the back of the pack, it said Made in Germany, so I thought they must be the same, and they were.

I believe you can get them at the English shop in Devonport. It is the shop situated in the old post office. Otherwise, nearest M and S is Singapore

Bramptins must have just got a new container in yesterday as the one in Browns Bay was full of boxes ready to be opened and their contents put on the shelves. The may now have a new stock of Percy Pigs.


Personnally I dont like them, sorry
