I was amazed that I can buy Oxo cubes in PNS, actually imported from Britain ! Colmans mustard and Colmans mint sauce is there too. Not in the international aisle either. Sometimes the international aisle of a supermarket is a let down. Must make a special trip to NW though. Basically people still have their own tastes even though they've emigrated. Yeah, I understand Dusty's question. The answer is that there is a harsh reality to emigrating which is only understood by those who have done it.

Yes imagine how much better the whole world would be for Expats if Marks and Spencers were everywhere?

The only thing I miss about England are Lockwoods frozen mushy peas .............................. Seen tinned Bachelors ones in the supermarket, but they're just not the same. Oh bring on the mushy peas
