OK I made a special trip to check them out (Riteaid) and they had almost none. They had a good price on Terry Orange at 2 for $5 which is the best price I've seen so far.

The manager said it was probably because of the size of the store and because this store was smaller. She said they don't even sell ice cream. I'm glad because some of the food was way old.

I asked this one before but I'll try again - anyone know where to get pork pies and sausage rolls in the southwest? I know about the British Pork Pie company but the shipping is insane to get them down here. I make my own sausage rolls but it's a bit of a chore.

I assume there must be some German or Austrian shop around somewhere that sells sausage rolls at least.

For anyone living near Bernardsville, Madison or Wayne...I've just been to Gary's in Bernardsville and he has a great selection of British Christmas goodies. Including Cadbury's selection boxes, Cadbury's choc tree decorations, mince pies, christmas puds etc etc etc.

I went to the Rose & Crown pub behind the Phoenix Convention Center and the food there was realistically greasy and hard to digest. Unfortunately they smothered the fish & chips sandwich with coleslaw but the fish itself was okay.

Also I happened to notice at my local Cost Plus World Market they've put a large amount of Cadbury's stuff on a shelf that is almost impossible to find, so I expect after Christmas I'll be able to buy it all for pennies.

In Las Vegas NV we use to have a store that had a great selection of British goods called British Foods, Inc. But unfortunately it is now out of business. It was located at 3375 S Decatur Blvd. # 11 Las Vegas, NV 89102-8044.

We do have a store in Las Vegas that has a good selection of British Goods called International Marketplace. It is really expensive but it does have a good selection of stuff. It is located at 5000 S Decatur Blvd. Las Vegas, NV 89118.

I've been to both of them. You probably know that you can get a discount card at the International Marketplace. I agree they have a huge selection.
