You can get almost anything if you know where to look, even UK type Bacon and Cumberland sausages. The things I have never seen in the US are Saveloys, frozen Yorkshire puddings, decent smoked salmon and real UK type bagels.

'real UK type bagels'...what are those?

The kind you can only get in bakeries run by Jews mainly in London, the type of place where they bake on premises at 5am and sell fresh ones all day, they are fairly small, chewy inside, shiny on top and burnt on the bottom. The closest in the US are what they call real NY bagels but they are much larger and quite different.

OK after a quick Google...bagels are from Jewish origin...not British. Which explains why Jewish bakeries in London sell them.

I didn't say that Bagels are from British origin, of course they are Jewish origin but the ones they sell in the UK in the real bagel bakeries are different from those available in the US. Hence the discussion about types of food that is available in the UK and not available in the US. Another thing that's difficult (but not impossible) to get in the US is crispy aromatic duck which is commonly available in most Chinese restaurants in the UK.

I know that I can get a discount card at the International Marketplace but I have only been there once and that was manny years ago and British Foods, Inc has since closed down. Which is sad. I went there a few times when I was a kid and remember talking to the women who worked there on the day that Wal Mart acquired ASDA. British Foods, Inc had a good selection but it was bloody expensive.

Exactly that's why we have this thread 'if you know where to look"

Just came across this recipe for chewy bagels while flicking through a magazine, don't know if this is what you are talking about but they sound easy enough to make

You need to give him a recipe for Yorkshire puds, too.
I've no idea why people would want to buy frozen ones, when they're so easy to make from scratch.
