$9 was at Fred Meyer, who are owned by Kroger. I'll recheck the price again this weekend, but it was like that for a couple of years at least. My local Trader Joes seem a bit variable.

Last night, after reading these forums, I visited all 5 krogers within 60 miles of me. Found:

Weetabix
Mustard
Mint Sauce
Piccallilli

Thats it. Nothing else. Wife was all excited to see Cadburys, till I flipped it over and showed her the hersheys license mark. Then she got all sad.

Now I gotta make an online purchase for pies and bacon because im craving them too much.

Heinz Beans - $2.97 a can! Outrageous! OH makes do with Bush's Vegetarian Beans - poor substitute, but........ Found Kerry Gold butter at Costco, his super-extra sharp hurts-your-jaws-at-first-bite cheddar from Sam's Club. (Have to drive all the way to Cincinnati, OH for Trader Joe's.)

$2.67 at Trader Joes for your Weetabix I was shocked as well its actually cheaper then a 24 pack in the UK.

I tried using the store locator on their site two days ago, it returned no results. I wish it worked like the others id used, and just spat out the nearest 3 stores no matter how far they are.

Nothing fresh, mainly condiments and chocolate, sweets, Mr Kiplings... I have seen the odd Fray Bentos pie in there I think, but it's easy enough to make a good pie yourself.

I found a huge selection of British foods at Krogers, the one I'm talking about is at the top of Research forest drive in The woodlands TX. its about a quarter of the isle. Loads of custards, cadburys, massive selection of Heinz sauces, beans even spaghetti hoops treacle tarts, lyons golden syrup! It was a big selection, I wish I'd taken a photo of it now for you guys. While over here I never thought I'd miss Salad cream as much as I do. lol

Still makes me giggle that all this food i grew up with in the UK is in the International section lol.

In my local Kroger Marketplace we have a mediterranean section and in it they have a 6 pack of Vimto.

My local Kroger also sells Naan bread and has a great indian section with everything from Curry too Chutney too Popadums they are ones you coat in oil and put in the microwave for 30 seconds.
