Ps, that boiling bacon is vile, nothing like the stuff you buy in the UK.
The Steak and Kidney pie tasted OK but it was nothing like the real thing all mush and soggy no actual meat or kidney pieces

If that's the same Australian Pie Company that used to have a store by Pike's Place Market in Seattle, they are indeed perfect.

Hi, Here in Maple Valley WA I can buy Colemans mustard , Heinz baked beans and HP sauce. There is a butchrs shop around here that sells "proper British bacon" mussy peas and the greatest steak and mushroom pies I have ever tasted, their website is www.properbritishbacon.com

Haven't gone through the entire thread to see if it's been mentioned, but Whole Foods are selling a big 29oz jar of Robertson's mincemeat for $4.00 which pisses all over World Market's $4.99 for a much smaller jar of the same stuff.

Make your own mincepies! Much tastier and cheaper! Easy too.

Well spotted I can't stand mincemeat myself but sure many others will be pleased with the tip off

Walmart of all places did have some but they sold out a while back apparently.

Poppy..if you're still on the messageboard right now...I have a quite totally unrelated question that you might be able to give me some advice on. Planning a trip back to England for new year, just me. I've always purchased medical insurance as a precaution but was talking with someone yesterday who swore I did not need the additional coverage as I still have a registered UK address there as a BRitish citizen. I am in two minds, as I have not lived there permanantly for several years, got a feeling my NHS privilages are over. Any advice? Cheers! (and sorry to hijack the thread)

British foods on Amazon.com. Definitely agree with checking that it's Amazon.com selling, not third-party.

Your closest one is on Bear Creek Parkway in Redmond.
