No, they're quite different. Heavy cream has 36% butterfat and British double cream is significantly thicker and has 48% butterfat. They are not interchangeable in many many recipes.

Thanks!
Pear drops available here.

The second one is hard boiled sweets, I feel like I've seen them in Fry's, Ralph's etc... unless those are american versions.

Those near Lynnwood, WA, there's a shop in Alderwood Mall called Lollipop that sells sweets from around the world. British section is pretty good and has things like Curly Whirly and Flake for $3.

Showing my age, but I remember when a Curly Whirly was 10p. Thats a lot of inflation, pity my savings accounts didn't grow by the same amount.

Yep, thats the one, not sure if it's worth $6.49 a loaf. I am going to the UK soon and may bring some back. I have a spare suitcase allowance I can buy the chocolate one in England also. yum

Would this establishment extend its offerings to Jammy Dodgers? I have a Doctor Who fan in the family, she is keen to try them.
