Birds custard was mentioned, and I have some, but no Swiss roll to go with it. Its my comfort food ever since it was my poor mans desert as a student. Any Swiss roll sightings?

A sales rep from the Highland Springs consortium e-mailed me, in answer to my inquiry about availability, that they were in the process of bringing their waters to the US, and specifically in Texas we were looking at about three months out. So all you Scotch drinkers, you'll now have something to go with your lovely Speyside whiskies.

Who dilutes the hard stuff though? That's a waste of decent booze.

Dilute? Perish the thought. Just a drop, just to open up the water-soluble flavoring elements. And a do mean a drop.

St. Pete is not that far..you could make a day trip of it. Plenty to do in eclectic Sarasota! =)
Just in TJ's the other day, happy to see that they have expanded their curry and associates (samosa's etc) product line, also the ginger chewy candies are great.
Interesting to see that product lines they share with Aldi are about the same price (my experience).

I received an e-mail from Big Apple Brits about a meat pie and sausage company operated by some British expats in Buffalo, NY.

If you're craving a pork pie, various kinds of British sausages and meat pies etc. then this might be of interest (no idea what their products are actually like though):

http://www.englishporkpiecompany.com/pages/about

The e-mail stated that you can get 10% off your entire order if you enter 'BIGAPPLEBRITS' in the promo code.

I haven't used them either, but I've seen them recommended a couple times on the Boston Brits group along with Twaites - http://www.thwaitesmarket.com/index.php Which for the Boston lot is closer as they're in Methuen, couple mins off the I-93 Loop Connector around I-495.

That's something I haven't been able to find. Closest I have got is either Stop and Shop own-brand or Little Debbie, but both are kinda sweet.

You could always make your own, I've made meat pies recently, but haven't made pork pies for several years. It's doable, there are many recipes on line. We were at an Xmas, where some xpats had made a tray of pork pies from an online recipe, and they were really good, plus they made a day of it and had a good time making them, consuming numerous sherbets.
Bottom line , the pig pies were really good with lashings of hp sauce.....

I live in Buffalo and love this place. Cannot beat being able to get a good pie locally. Their bacon and sausages are awesome too.

They're the place to hit during a holiday weekend as they do seem to have a lot more going on.

I've been told their pies and sausages are the best around

I like how this thread keeps going around in circles.

I think I mentioned it further back, I bought some pork pies from them, they were far from crap but they didn't have enough gelatin in them, I think so they could be shipped long distance. Possibly the ones they sell in-store aren't like that.
