I enjoyed Oui! - it's certainly a step in the right direction but how I long to have the choice and quality of yogurts I took for granted in the UK. Most American yogurt is really very poor indeed.

Hardly surprising, in the UK you bought yoghurt, how classy can a place get that pronounces it yo-gert, sounds like you're hollering at white trash on the trailer park.

Talking of Yogurt, I'm having a lot of trouble finding Yakult, found a cheapy version in Walmart, but nowhere else, anyone any ideas??

I've seen Yakult at Target and Costco before.

If you're truly out of luck, find your nearest giant Asian store. Yakult is massively popular all over Asia.

Don't know if you have Market Basket or Price Chopper, but they both have it too.

Is there a specific go to online British foods store that is not too expensive? I do see bits and bobs on Amazon and we do have a world food market here though I was wondering if there is an online site for the US that alot of expats buy some British foods from.

Mainly looking for the items below
​​​​​​
​​​​​​In Bru
​​​​​​Rich Tea Biscuits
Jaffa Cakes
Young's curry sauce (chip shop curry sauce)

The one I see mentioned the most in expats groups is British Corner Shop https://www.britishcornershop.co.uk. They are in the UK and a 30Kg box to the USA is $24.99 shipping.

I don't think any of the online stores compare to UK supermarket prices.

WOW! I feel like I am taking a trip down memory lane looking at all those brand names from back home. I will definitely look into this more.

Definitely agree most of the time whenever I come across something here in the states I will tell my wife how some items are four /five times the price.

Though even food in general I feel is extremely cheap in the UK store own brand products such as Tesco everyday value digestives for 29p!!!

Anybody seen real Stilton in Costco yet this year? Our nearest is 90 miles away so I'm not making a trip purely on spec!
