Reminds me, Kroger sells Lemon Puffs. They are called something different and they are in the Hispanic food section but they look and taste just like Lemon Puffs and they are less than 2 bucks for a large packet..just saying

I think I had them once .

To be honest I give most of them away, my American friends always ask for snickers , they say the nuts are toasted more, ( no jokes please ) and they are creamier.

I don't think so, but they do have Cup O'Noodle, which is basically the same thing, just without fancy packaging. I like it even better, but the sodium content is ridiculously high.

Default Jaffa Cakes

Check out Aldi's if you are missing your Jaffa Cakes.

$1.99 for a large double pack and they taste just like the real thing. I've got through 3 boxes already

I've seen those or something similar in Big Lots type of places, though usually by the time I've discovered them, there's only raspberry flavours left as the jaffa ones are all gone

those are just fantastic.

I'm off to Northern Kentucky for the rest of the week, so I'm only 30-40 minutes drive from Jungle Jims (plenty of threads about that place). Have a stupidly long shopping list. They better have Pickled Onion Monster Munch or the wife is going to kill me

Any finds on the Cadburys creme egg hunt I keep seeing Hersheys attempts everywhere especially in Wally World but I want a REAL cadburys egg.

I know Traceym mentioned she saw some but they were Hersheys.

Scary read the reviews http://www.amazon.com/Cadbury-Creme-.../dp/B0014Y57TK $90 with shipping.
