I bought crumpets in Trader Joe's today. Am now very popular with eldest daughter (although she has yet to try them). I have also been able to make pretty good versions of Cornish pasties and sausage rolls using the frozen puff pastry. (the latter go down a treat with OH's work colleagues, although I have never worked out why the Americans don't seem to be aware of them - they are just meat and carbs, so should be a staple US food!)

I've got 2 packets in the cupboard. Going to have some for supper with grilled matured Cheddar cheese on top.

Cool Re: UK Foods in the US Share your finds!

Just a few blocks from my house in New Jersey is an excellent (large) shop called 'The Wine Library'.

It also sells a good variety of 'gourmet food' items; eg. fig jams, honey, pates, olive oils, balsamic vinegar, artisan bread, dairy items etc. etc.

On Friday and Saturday afternoons they put out lots of samples of cheeses from the US and Europe...so it's a good time for me to go and buy some plonk and do some cheese tasting at the same time.

They often bring in some cheeses from the Neal's Yard Dairy in Covent Garden. Well I was in the 'Wine Library' a couple of hours ago and was thrilled to see that at the cheese counter they had some 'Berkswell Cheese' (from ewes-milk) which is a local artisan cheese from a farm just a few miles away from where I grew up. Naturally I couldn't resist buying half a pound of it - I'd never tasted it before - and it is absolutely delicious!

(They are also selling some very nice Cheshire cheese and other English cheeses from Neal's Yard):

So today I was in Safeway, and maybe some of you knew this but it was news to me that they had a British munchie aisle.. so see pics below and have a look in your local store.

Our local Kroger still has its International section but where the British sign is all the food is Indian except for some crappy looking Shepherds Pie topping mix(whatever that is).

We have Smiths Foods that is owned by Kroger and they sell Toblerone frequently for a dollar and I wonder if that is cheaper than what people pay in Europe.

So it's correct then it is the British section!

It's almost certainly cheaper than what it costs where it is manufactured in Switzerland! I will ask my spouse to check next time he's in one of the grocery stores there, but all the shops are closed on Sundays (except for the mini-marts at petrol and train stations).

The only chocolate I bring back from there are the brands which aren't usually seen in the US eg. Cailler.

Come to think of it, I wouldn't be surprised if Lindt chocs are cheaper in the US than in Switzerland - everything is so expensive there.

They also had massive packets of Digestives for $1.20
