It's vile shit that should only ever be used when massively drunk to see how many you can eat without taking a drink.

You can find some British snacks at Asian markets. If you live in California Ranch99 and County Square Market both carry some British snacks, both have Cadbury fingers. About $3 I think. During Christmas I found a ob-longed tin can of Cadbury at Ranch99 for about $11! Three packs into the tin, one milk, white, dark chocolate. I was extremely happy needlessly to say lol.

I've adapted to American food and don't miss much, except for Cadbury and Walkers. Sadly I haven't found anywhere that sold Walkers, was hoping World Market did, but they only had a British candy section and no crisp

Though I do shop a lot on Amazon. God I love Amazon!

Grew up eating it, problem was back then I used to put sugar on it.

Nowadays if I am trying to eat right, I have it several times a week for breakfast, with out the sugar.

I would rather eat a crunchie later as my treat

They've just opened a brand new Publix on our corner with a great selection of UK foodstuffs. Even Lucozade

Anyone apart from me remember the big "Lucozade Aids Recovery" sign on the Beechams building by the elevated section of the M4 in Brentford?

It disappeared very soon after the general awareness of HIV became more widespread...

I get my finds from family visiting me from the UK. I am addicted to McVite's Jaffa Cakes, simply the best. The chocolate here is another story, went to Canada where they have the same chocolates as the UK (Aeros etc. and even the Kit-Kat tasted the same) I can never find these types of items in stores in New Jersey, even in the typical green grocer. I would appreciate anyone's find in Northern New Jersey. Thanks!

I am loving my Crunchy Nut Cornflakes... I couldn't tell you if they taste the same as in the UK as it has been a long while since I ate them there... what I do know is that they are YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!

Need to find a better source for my marmite craving though!! I think I will have to pop along to Cost Plus this week sometime!!
