I'll have to look in the Dollar Tree. Although I do worry that the taste from polish chocolate may come from the 104 carcinogenic chemicals, that have been added, just to make it taste like orange.

I was over the moon when our new local Publix up here in Winder, GA decided to add a tiny space for us Brits (I think I'm 1 of only 2 in this town) even though its only a small section on the ethnic food isle ... I was grinning from ear to ear and taking pictures ... shows how much I miss a piece of home.

Er no, Irn Bru is like nothing else, there is no way to describe what it tastes like. It just tastes good and it's a great hangover cure.

Do you not remember the adverts 'made in Scotland, from girdars'?

Ok then I am truely a lost Brit ... see thats why I am in so need of a visit ... all these hangovers and the cure was sitting right under my nose the whole time.

Actually no, dont remember ... think I lost a few brain cells back in 1989 when I took the leap across the pond. Wow I feel like a lost Brit now. Time to regroup my roots.

Beside the Brit shop in Freeport, Ive noticed Hannafords/Shaws starting to get more British food in.

I Recently found Colemans English Mustard (the spread not the powder), T&L Golden Syrup (which is great news as my wife tried to make flapjack recently with Taro syrup or something and it was minging...bless her), Sarsons and Hob Nobs..set for life.....

Would KILL for sausage rolls - not rolls with sausages in them... - and Walkers S & V.

The Shaws in Freeport usually has a massive Brit section and can be pretty cheap.

There used to be an amazing Brit bakery in Searsport, a English chap ran it, made amazing sausage rolls, pasties and pies...but then he retired and sold the business, new owners turned it into an Italian bakery and it was shit and quickly closed up I think. Major shame.
