My daughter bought half a dozen boxes of Mr K's a couple of weeks ago here in Toronto. Yesterday she bought some more because there are only 2 boxes left...she picked up a couple of boxes of Mr K's Bakewell tarts too.

I thought of you when I saw them in my UK Aldi this evening. They had a huge stack of them!

Made my first batch of mince pies last night........

Indian stores around here always seem to carry British stuff.

HomeGoods have a sale on Thorntons. They have huge boxes available.

Also, not Brit but Neuhaus Belgian chocs - really good stuff.

If anyone knows where I can buy a good loaf of English bread in Florida I'd be most appreciative! I've been hankering for some English toast since I left Bristol last year. =(

Lol! My fiance is from Bristol. I'm from Sarasota, FL. I went to visit him last year and the bread in England is super thick and looks like it came straight from a bread maker. It was so good I ate toast every day I was there! The bread on our American grocery shelves is really thin and just not the same. It's funny, I never thought there was anything wrong with our bread but I've been spoiled by the English! =p

Gotcha. We Brits seem to think Trader Jack's do good food generally. There is one by you. What do you think? (I haven't been myself, but I am in St Pete & thought about it)

I was thrilled to pieces when they brought Trader Joe's to the East cost! I lived in California for a few years and wondered if they would ever branch to the Sunshine state. Their orange chicken in the frozen section is one of my favorite dinner foods! And you have not lived until you've tried their maple leaf cookies. Pay no attention to the caloric intake, mind you!

St. Pete is not that far..you could make a day trip of it. Plenty to do in eclectic Sarasota! =)
