Target has them too, not that cheap though, but yesterday they had orange ones with crunchy bits in them.

A little different, but really good all the same, not waxy and nothing horrid in the ingredients list. You might want to get the dark choc version, it's not as sweet, but our little one isn't to fond of dark chocolate and it's all the same price.

Their pound plus chocolate is really good for baking too, especially the dark choc, 72% and $5, bargain.

Peeps may want to carefully check the shelves at their nearest Big Lots.

We've found two stores with a small but interesting "international section" which has features things like custard creams, bourbon biscuits and more. $1 a pack.

Also, as we were reminded the other night "The Christmas Tree Shop" - which doesn't do Christmas Trees - does some Brit foods too, like Terry's Chockie Oranges for around $2 and more biscuits, snacks etc

I should have stuck with my instinct - the Poles cannot make good chocolate. I shall in future stick with what I know and trust - Lindt. Worth the money.

The spotted bit is obvious, the raisins, the Dick part, that I thought was German related, for dough because in German it sounds like dick.

Maybe try World Market in Santa Fe, NM. I remember finding a whole bunch of British stuff there 8 years ago. Haven't been to one since, but I think there is also one near us in Seattle.

World Market has got some great cheese, and they sell Weetabix also (although I see these cropping up in Smiths in the normal cereal aisle!)

Although its clearly not a necessity, it would be nice to be able to find packets of things like Angel Delight and gravy is a big one too!

You'll probably have to travel to Colorado Springs, CO or Santa Fe, NM for the nearest World Market, Costplus. I have been driving between Austin and Denver for the last 18 months and pass through Ratan and Trinidad.

If you have a trader joes they usually sell Weetabix the cheapest.

Is it King Sooper or Safeway that has Weetabix in it's cereal section usually near the Kashi stuff? It's made in Canada but just as good.
