Not wishing to be difficult, but I actually didn't like them much when I tried them.

Pretty good selection of products at reasonable prices. Should do OK as there is quite a sizable ex-pat community on the UES who have previously had to go farther afield to get their fix.
If you've got a H-Mart, it's a Korean grocery store, but they have quite a decent range of Brit goods too.

I don't know where they are down your way, but they've got a few stores in NY and NJ....I've only been to the one in Burlington, MA and it was rather superb.

Ocean State, they had a bunch of Hob Nobs for $2 a pack, again...also packs of PG Tips for $3 for the 40 odd count I think it was.

I went into H-mart the other day, at 8AM, I was the only person around, it was open but it was at least 10 minutes before I even saw a member of staff.

Occasionally I would see something out of the corner of my eye at the end of an aisle but by the time I'd turned to look 'it' was gone, finally I made it my mission to find a living soul so I went to the checkout area, no one, contemplated walking out of the store then I saw someone flash past between the aisles so I 'gave chase'.

Finally, a person, a person...that didn't speak english, not even broken, the only word she apparently new was "Sorry" while walking backwards, MISO! She must know what MISO is, I said it a few times, MISO? Where is the MISO?

It felt like some weird Alice in wonderland shit. Long story short, I got what I wanted and someone was magically at the checkout.

I didn't see any British goods there but it was all a blur! I spent most of the time making sure there isn't any meat/fish product in what I'm buying, looking for a packet of Hobnobs really wasn't on my agenda

But I will go again, at a busier time, so it doesn't feel as weird.

Salad cream is normally easy to find well in CA!!

Try the upscale grocery stores they normally have a brit aisle, I was in a store yesterday and nearly passed out Heinz Salad Cream $6.99 .....World Market is normally about $4.

Don't remember what size it was, but the Toblerone bars they had at Heathrow a couple of weeks ago were also obscenely priced - so I didn't buy one! And I love Toblerone.

During the summer? What's wrong with you? They should have been finished 3 weeks ago.

We just tried the Wegmans own brand vegetarian beans, much nicer than the Heinz vegetarian beans, bit more like the UK ones, still a little sweet, but nothing nasty in it.

Best bit, $1.20 for a massive 28oz can, so much cheaper than the Heinz version or the import stuff.

The sausages weren't bad either.
