One question though, how are the prices?
Good luck if its anything like our local Brit store, take out a mortgage before you go!

I've just looked back through my emails, because I was going to order a big box of goodies before I was laid off. I can't remember everything that was in the order but, to my recollection they're cheaper than World Market. Our order came to $75.66. (excluding postage and packaging). There was loads of stuff in our order and I remember thinking that we'd spent more for less at World Market.

Tell Michael that Sue Laybourn (formally from Arizona) said hello and that she's overdosing on Fray Bentos pies.

Earlier today I was driving along Ruote 10 going West, just short of Route 287, when I noticed a LARGE Cadbury's building on the Eastbound side. I've not noticed it before so I wonder if this is something new? The front looked like a large admin area and the back maybe a loading/dispatch area.
Maybe as a result of Cadbury being sold it is now being given a mandate to push into the USA far more.

That building was built on Rt 10 a few years ago. It was originally built for Cadbury/Schweppes...I know 'cos I drool everytime I pass.

I have found a few online stores that specifically sell English food, but they are so expensive. I have found 'substitutes' for most things and I have also discovered lots of new and fantastic food. I won't go hungry - certainly in the US!
Obviously geographical factors come in to this... For instance, if you live in LA then there is a good chance you will find lots of stores selling English food, but if like me you live in Kentucky - No chance!
I'm sure it's like the age old thing of Brits going on holiday, if a family goes to Marbella for 2 weeks, the first thing they look for is an English bar! Having said that, like I said, it doesn't stop me missing Marmite!!
I live in Kentucky and have no problems finding English Food.

World Market has the best selection of English Food.
Do you have a Meijers supermarket near you? They have an english section?
Are you near a Kroger Marketplace? They have an English section too.

I just found these in Trader Joes, I don't know what they taste like but they look far to similar not to be close to Terry's $2.99 each, oh and they have chocolate advent calendars too.

Terry's now there's a name.

They used to sell my favorite box of chocolates, mainly dark chocolate. Think it was called 1612 or a close number. Not seen this for years.

Feel the love.

Actually when I go I usually get some chocolates for the wife and I usually help her eat her share

She also does not like the chocolate orange
