Default British Foodstuff

Hi everyone

Where is the best place to find British foodstuff in Florida apart from publix?

Many thanks in advance

There are a few British food shops scattered around - whereabouts are you? Your alternative may be to do as many others do and shop online. Either way - it can get expensive!

Churchills on 192 is good they also have a web site, I placed an order last Thursday and it was delivered in 2 day,s they are very helpful I even got some Thorntons chocolates there. The 4 and 20 pastie shop in Sarasota, also ship, just got an order from them of Pork Pies, cumberland sausage and pork and sage sausage. The sausages are wonderful, not full of salt like the Amercian ones.They do all sorts of pies and pasties.

World Market. They are pricey... but worth it if you're missing certain essentials... like Cadbury's chocolate...

oooooooooh!!!! They do pickled onions and branston?! I never knew that and I shop there a lot!!
I tend to go there for tea bags (nothing like PG Tips!), chocolate, stuff to make a curry, and Bisto gravy granules.

They may well vary. Ours has both but its difficult to get there in time as it gets snatched up fast. Come to think, they also carry Salad Cream and this time of year, Quality Street and other things.

English food does seem a lot more available these days than it has been before. I keep a mental list of where to get Cream Crackers, HP Sauce, local snausages etc, etc.

If you are in NC then try Harris Teeter for PG tips, I have a place in Cornelius and they sell them there.

Watch out for the Cadburys in World Market. Last time I checked some of the Cadburys branded goods are not made in the UK.

If you live in a part of NC with a big Indian population (like I do, in Durham), the Indian grocery stores sell British tea. e.g. PG Tips, Tetley and other brands.

Ohh, I worked that one out with Cadbury's, they sell it in Food Lion too, and it is made by Hersheys. Not the same, and totally vile. When I go to World Market, if it is imported from Australia, also not the real thing. It has to be imported from England
I don't live in a part of NC with a big Indian population, unfortunately.
But then for tea, I go to World Market, they haven't let me down yet

I guess you don't live in the Triangle then. Thanks to the large Indian population, there's great Indian restaurants and the grocery stores that sell familiar British foodstuff.

In Chicago we have a Meijer which has a decent British food section with stuff like robinsons squash, pg tips, various chocolates, bisto etc and its not too pricey for some of the stuff. My husband tells me Meijer are all over the USA. Otherwise I haven't found anywhere else nearby that sells any other British items but there are plenty of mail order websites around!
