Fiesta (One of the Katy ones) currently has:
hula hoops
pickled onions
picallili
branston
bisto
crunchies
flakes
dairy milk
british sausages
british back bacon
black pudding
mince pies
brandy snaps
christmas puddings

All at very reasonable prices. The black pudding I think was less than $1. If that's not a good enough reason to go, the wine and beer I got was about a third cheaper than HEB.

I found Cadburys selection boxes in Walmart today, $9.99, and a small box of Cadbury's biscuits, $5.

The nearest for me is on the south east side of Austin about 60 - 70 miles and I35 is awful. I have to go there if only for the black pudding although would leave with much more. My Texan wife picked up Mr Kiplings Christmas cake and mince pies from Costplus which will do me nicely for Christmas.

Ps, that boiling bacon is vile, nothing like the stuff you buy in the UK.
