Default Tins of Roses & Quality Street

...another sign of Christmas in the HD household.
I was wondering if anyone on the board can recommend a good place Stateside to order 'em from? I normally get my sister to send one of each over but with the dollar getting creamed by the pound I was hoping to get a better deal with an ex-pat online site.

Thanks in advance for suggestions.

Try Sam's B.J's or Costco but check on the label that they are made in England and not under license from Hurshey

My mum will bring mine direct from Woolworth's. She comes every Christmas with tins and tins of Qual. Streets, veggie gravy granules, christmas puddings, chestnuts, English stuffing mix, Walkers shortcake, Aeros, Cadbury's and on and on... From her suitcase to our mouths!

I try to tell her we can get all that stuff here, but she brings it anyway. Last year, she brought MASSES of gravy granules and the packets burst in transit. She was also outraged because they took her crackers off her at the airport.
