Exclamation Help! Need Weetabix Mini in USA

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me how to buy Weetabix Mini Crunch (Honey flavor!) in the States? I live in NY City. I've been hoping that a local gourmet food place would have it.... but no luck yet.

I've searched the internet too. The lowest price I've seen it for (on www.britsuperstore.com) has been about US$13 per box with shipping.

Please help me out. Thanks!

Just did a very very quick search. Try www.englishsweets.com
I have no clue what this is you are searching for but it looks like it's only around $6 there. Good luck!

Only thing I can say is if you really, really want this British food, just bite the bullet and buy it on the internet.

Once you've lived in the US a while, you have to make decisions about which British foodstuffs you really miss and then buy them. I miss some breakfast cereals that I can't get here but I make do with what there is, even if it means driving 25 mins to some overpriced healthfood store to get it...

Fairways.

If you live in Manhattan there is one in the city somewhere. If you live in Queens, you may find it easier to come to the one in Plainview.

Also, some of the big Stop and Shops used to sell them but I don't think you get S&S in the city.

Try

http://www.myersofkeswick.com

and if they don't have it I'm sure they would get some in for you.

They're in the Meatpacking district and a couple of blocks away you will find:

http://www.asaltandbattery.com

and next door is: http://www.teaandsympathynewyork.com (with a Brit souvenir/confectionery store in-between them both.
