They are very similar. I learnt that the hard way by buying a box thinking they were something else

I'm sure they are exceptionally rare as most things with pastry on them here are sweet. If you find them, pleeeeeease let me know lol.

The Fresh Market near me has lots of items. I'm particularly fond of the Devonshire Cream even though it's expensive and comes in a really small jar.

They are located at 25961 US Highway 19 N, Clearwater, FL.

Other locations can be found at their website http://www.thefreshmarket.com/stores...px?q=a#Results

I have only shopped at this one, so I don't know if the other stores offer the same items, but I believe that they may.

Regards,
Mary

except for cadburys..
I got a tub of birds only because the local Indian grocery store had it for a couple bucks...my sister then came for a visit and brought me another one

Hardly used them, but now and again, for a apple crumble, it sooo hits the spot

Anyway, now we've moved, not found much in the way of cheap, there's no Indian grocery store or much of a population in this area, which is a shame. Local Stop and Shop has decently priced Aero bars and Heinz Beans at a couple bucks a tin it's no different to B&M beans, but the Robinsons Barley water costs a fortune and that's the one thing I do rather like to get in the summer.

There's a place in Maine that make pretty decent attempt up in Belfast...but there used to be a bakery in Searsport that made fantastic cornish pasties and all sorts, especially pork pies, the baker was a Brit, but then retired and sold the business, new owner turned it into an Italian bakery and I think went out of business.

This really got me going lol! Drove down to the local Fed Meyer and there it was - HP Fruity! Got some curry powder, Coleman's mustard and Bachelor's mushy peas while I was at it.

Then I noticed a tin of spotted dick (a neighbour was going on and on about spotted dick during a recent fishing trip to Alaska so a few of us are going to get together for a liver 'n onions night - the spotted dick and bird's custard will round off the meal perfectly )

The only thing from the UK I have missed are Oxo cubes (available in Fred Meyer) and gravy granules (in World Market). Ok they cost a small fortune but they're cheaper than buying them on Amazon. I don't miss anything else from the UK.

There is a Bartell Drugs store at the bottom of my office skyscraper. I popped in for some 'drugs' today and found they sell Cadburys chocolate bars; Dairy Milk, Fruit n Nut, Caramello and a Dark one.
I guess these are probably just Hershey clones but I bought them all to find out!
