Although based in UK they ship worldwide. I highly recommend the korma

Next, for those seeking some decent sausage an bacon :

http://www.balsonbutchers.com/

Might be a little pricey but it's the real deal. None of that close but no cigar disappointment.

Enjoy.

PS.. For those of you that have access to Kroger stores, their new 'superstores' all have excellent international aisles. I just bought Bisto granules, Galaxy bar, mint Aero and a six pack of Vimto from mine.
Where in TN are You? our local Krogers remodelled put in international aisles and then ran them straight down! very disappointing

I'm in Knoxville. Three 'fully loaded' Krogers, a World Market and an Irish pub that does a great full breakfast, cod'n'chips and shows live English footie.
Life is quite civilized around these parts.

If anyone on the west coast has a Grocery Outlet (http://www.groceryoutlet.com/) near them, they may want to pop in. Our one has plain Hobnobs and both plain and milk chocolate McVities digestives available. 99 cents per pack.

I agree, been into several in several different States, never seen a section like that. You can't even get fruity HP in Canada, not unless you go into a specialist shop.
