Galaxy chocolate........ Galaxy chocolate and maybe some Galaxy Chocolate?!

But really if people offer to send or bring stuff I usually say De-Caff Teabags, Birds Instant Custard Powder and Angel Delight..... easy to please me!

yeh I know, but in such small and expensive bottles - It was my sons 7th birthday on Friday - both sets of grandparents sent large jars of Marmite for him. Such a simple thing but he was soo chuffed!

Smile Re: What is the top 3 most wanted items from uk?

In Wellington you seem to be able to get most UK stuff.....New World even has Lancashire cheese all the way from Lancashire and Weetbix tastes just like Weetabix but looks very different. You can even get Thornton's chocolates in some shops, which only became available in the South of England recently; and Cadbury's have a factory here....it's so weird you come so far across the world and it's more like the UK than all of Continental Europe put together.....but vive la difference!
