This Thread has brightened up my day! Love the advent joke.

UK foods I miss are:

Bisto gravy, chip shop curry sauce, branston sandwich pickle, good cheese, proper bacon. Most of all real cadbury dairy milk!!

If anyone knows a secret location to get these at UK prices you would be an angel.

Happy Holidays

S&B Curry sauce makes a good replacement chip shop curry sauce, you can buy it in Walmart or on amazon:

UK prices? Ain't gonna happen!

What with the cost of shipping it in from Blighty, there's duty/tax, not to mention profit! The quantities imported are unlikely to attract huge discounts - not like the supermarkets - so once all that is added together, the prices are at least double, if not triple, the UK price.

I found Branston (regular AND smaller chunk) in Publix at $4.99 a small jar. Two months ago in Asda in Milton Keynes, I paid two pounds for a large one - and two years ago, I caught them on sale for a quid.

But you can sometimes from stuff going cheap in Christmas Tree shop. I found Robinsons, Marmite, Twiglets and a few other things now and again going for a buck a pop.

Pretty rare though.

Has anyone tried the Hotel Chocolat tasting club in the US? Keen to know if the chocolate remains as good!

Not sure if anyone's already mentioned this but Office Depot is selling Terry's Chocolate Orange for about $2.50 in the Festive Confectionary Section. Tastes amazing.

Anyone seen Mr Kipling Christmas Cake slices this year? They had them in World Markets the first couple of years I was here, and then on Amazon the last few, but can't find them anywhere this year. Sulk

I found a bag of nuts and snacks that the seller promised me were exactly the ones they eat at Buckingham Palace. Wait, you don't think...
