What sites can you recommend for getting UK food by mail order in the USA?

There's just some things that don't hit the mark here.

Where are you. Costplus/World Market has several items like Colmans Mustard, Heinz Beans, MArmite etc (they keep saying they'll be getting Branston but not seen it yet - that's what I miss the most right now!)
Though keep you eyes peeled and you'll find safeway has the odd item too.
Amazon has some market traders that offer Branston etc aswell though I try to go to them directly if I can find them.

Good Luck

Pretty much every supermarket round here has a tiny British section usually tagged on to the Kosher aisle. Can get my Branston there...

I use

http://www.britishgoodsonline.com/

I find their service is excellent and never had any problems with them, been using them for 2 years or so.

But also, investigate your locals stores like Kroger, whole Foods, World market - they do International sections and you can generally find things there like Marmite, HP, Pickle.

Just to add - If you like Heinz Beans, but don't like the look of the prices, try Krogers Vegetarian Beans in Tomato Sauce (They are the same as Heinz IMO and at a lesser price).

If you're in the NY, PA, MD, NJ or MA? area you might want to check out Wegmans. The larger stores have pretty good British/Internation sections. However, the selection is limited (even ordering food online).

Online search, just stick in "British Food" in google and it'll bring up a large list of companies that ship all over the world.

As others have suggested try World Market. Don't know if you have a Harris Teeter in your neck of the woods but I find the odd british food item in there like Tea Bags, Baked Beans and curry sauces.

Where do you live? It may not be necessary to order food by mail if there are retail stores that you can shop at.

People keep mentioning Wegmans, not seen one in the state anywhere though...

Stop N Shop has an okay Brit section, as does Hannafords if you have one, the Robinsons there is about $3 cheaper than the local SnS.

Hi,

I am just starting an online store selling British Foods worldwide from where I live in the UK.

I am new to these forums so don't want to get banned for breaching the forum rules by directly advertising this service but am looking for a good way to notify those expats living abroad of the service I can offer.

To add my comments about things like chocolate, I think we really do make the best in the uk especially the new Cadbury cream egg twists they have just launched her,

Regards
Brian

We don't have one in our neck of NYS either. There is one in NJ that I pass on Route 9 going to Freehold.

Stop N Shop doesn't have a British aisle but they do have an Irish aisle which stocks a lot of British foods. But then I don't know if SNS is in NC.

When I was living in Orlando we used to use Goodings, but their selection was small and like the rest of their stuff really expensive

So you don't fall foul of the forum rules I suggest you take the time to familiarise yourself with them, particularly rule 9. You will also find signature guidelines in rule 18
