Well, now!

TBH, the pasties seem a bit overpriced, but the butcher shop looks excellent. Cumberland sausages and back bacon for $6.50 a pound! Black pudding!!!!

Were you in there around 1PM Eastern, today?

It's just, I called them to ask a question, spoke to the bloke (who's a Brit, incidentally) and he said he had a customer in. It would be an awesome coincidence if it was you.

It's a plot. They went there to get all the stuff you wanted before you could make your order, and only just barely made it in time!

Has anyone tried Aldi's "british style" chocolate? It may not be exactly like Cadburys, but it's a lot better than (yuck) hersheys, and that "made in america" Cadburys rubbish.

It's also very inexpensive.

I have noticed that Aldi have a lot of seasonal stuff for christmas that is both reasonably priced and similar to things I would get in the UK.

Where do you get it? I wouldn't mind giving it a go. Anything is better than Americanised Cadbury! :S

It depends if you're in an area where Aldi is.

I recommend Amazon as long as you ensure you are buying from Amazon and not an affiliate. Beans, HP Sauce PG Tips, get in bulk and sign up for auto delivery and save extra 15%. You are not committed to any amount and can accelerate or cancel shipments if you want. Free shipping over $25 too. Well worth a look for some goods.

Another Houston specific one.
Phoenicia, 12141 Westheimer sells a huge range of british food at reasonable prices. I saw lots of chocolate, Ribena, Heinz beans etc. Not much more than UK prices.

O my gosh, they're the same thing? Like, literally the same thing? I always knew they were similar, but I didn't think they were actually the same thing! You've honestly just made my day, RickWG. And my Mum and sister's, for that matter.
