Yup, bit mental...Walmart across town has it for a few pennies less, but that's so not a good enough reason to venture into that particular Walmart

I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned the British Emporium in Grapevine, near Dallas, TX. Nice folk. I had to take my wife and in-laws there to demonstrate what real bacon looks like, bacon where the the meat to fat ratio is in correct proportions!

Our 'taste the English food' experiment later was amusing to say the least, the Marmite faces were the best, a close second was the Black Pudding face!

I have not read through all 30+ pages but I have got stuff from Amazon, Haribo Cola bottle too... OK I know not english but yum and I have bought from Meijer and World Market.

Sams Club also carry some English/Irish cheese that is not too badly priced.

Speaking of Irish cheese, anyone ever tried that Kerrygold stuff that some supermarkets carry in the refrigerated deli sections? (think one of them is called "Dubliner")... looks like it could be tasty, but very expensive at 5 or 6 bucks a pop.

Yes that one is pretty good, yummy with some Branston Pickle, if you have Sams membership get it there better deal than supermarkets.

It's not bad, it's a little tame and some places have better prices that others.

If you like sharp cheddar and have a Trader Joes, there's a 5 year aged Canadian cheddar which is really rather good and a fair bit cheaper.

Thanks for the tip Bob. I'll definitely check out the Trader Joes one, they've got an excellent track record with their own label foods, and pretty reasonable prices. Love their Indian stuff for a quick spicy fix from the micro (though sadly they don't do a curry and chips)

We used to eat the Canadian Cheddar over the home made kind back in Blighty.

It's amusing how apparently it's cheaper in the UK than in Canada, because of some government forced pricing on dairy products out there, in Vancouver at least
