Absolutely blown away to find them in my local walmart in wisconsin a few weeks later. Civilisation has reached the midwest at last

Presumably if they have them here they must have them at all/most locations nationwide?

We have them here in Charlotte, NC as well as HP sauce

It's always nice when your UK friends come through Nobody is allowed to come and visit us unless they bring the biggest box of PG Tips with them.

Amazed me too, but the one near us has some pretty impressive stuff inside. Maybe call and find out first if your local store has one, ours only started carrying food about 6 months ago. Looks like it started out as a pilot scheme through Cost Plus World Market, fingers crossed it does well and stays.

Look somebody even made a video!!!

It wouldn't make a difference. They're just cheap!

I'm still getting a lot of stuff not available locally shipped from www.britishcornershop.co.uk.

Gets here pretty quick and the prices are very reasonable.

Second that. I've shopped with these guys quite a lot. Shipping can be expensive BUT if you get a couple of people to go in with you, not that bad.

All of which you can get at any supermarket in Canada, pretty much, except the minstrels. The cadbury creme eggs sold in the US are made in Ontario.

If you live in New York I suggest a trip to Niagara-On-The-Lake.

That always cracks me up. What really cracks me up is they have Canadian stuff like Coffee Crisps in the ethnic food section.

I can get US made Cadbury eggs anywhere but the chocolate isn't the same.

Haha, I currently work for Publix - love their British sections.

Irn Bru, Yorkshire Pudding and Club biscuits - pretty much your 3 staples.

Lucozade for when you are feeling poorly.

It's awesome.
