I don't know if it's the ones you are looking for but the Hare and the Hounds on TO has Mr. Kipling cake thingies. Chocolate, Lemon and another flavour. Bakewell and another one too - can't remember.

Anyway, I'm going there this evening - I can take a pic if you like to make sure they are the same as you are looking for...lmk.

Thanks. I live in No. Cal. now though, otherwise that would have been my first place to try, it's just around the corner from where I used to work.

Might help Sally though , and the pair of you can taunt me with them

Ok, well I tried to take pics but my bloody fone was out of juice.

The only stuff they have left is Mr Kipling Chocolate Slices, Lemon Slices, Rum and Raisin Slices. And of course the usual jam tarts and apple thingies.

Loads of Malteasers though - AND snowballs!!!!

Default Re: UK Foods in the US Share your finds!

We recently found Mr Kiplings mince pies in a store just down the road from our home here in Fort Lauderdale. To say we were excited lol was an understatement. We ended up buying 6 boxs of them, and we have munched our way through 2 of the boxs already lol.
