Yes, they are out. I went in a couple of months ago and they had nothing - I thought they were sold out. Went in again last weekend - nothing.

Good news is the wee British shop around the corner still has them. They are actually for a friend of mine who's birthday is coming up. I keep harping on about our chocolate so I hope she likes them.

And no, I don't understand why they are STILL more familiar to me than the US ones after I have been here all this time.
Yes, this is it, isn't it? Sometimes you don't want to actually buy anything (especially at possibly-inflated prices) but just to remind yourself of what all those familiar things look like that were so easy to find back home that you never appreciated them much.

I hadn't had a sausage roll in 10 years back in England, but for some reason I'm craving them lately. . . .

Buy the frozen puff pastry, defrost 1/2 hour, roll it as directed, line up some farmer john skinless sausages (those 8oz packs at $1.50). Roll up, pinch, trim off pastry if desired, brush with egg, throw in oven and boom, homemade sausage rolls

Ocean State had loads of Hobnobs at $2....also Terry's Choc Oranges at $3.

Price Chopper had a buy one get one free for a Branston Pickle jobby, but they were $6 a bottle.

Just a nod to those in Charlotte and who live near the SC border/Lake Wylie/Tega Cay etc etc. The Harris Teeter at the corner of S. Tyron and Steele Creek road now has a small British section. So now I don't have to drive to the other side of town to buy some Ribena and Branston Pickle

Harris Teeter pricing (, though the Aero was only $1.29

$2.85 for Irn-Bru, I paid $7.26 for 6, curious if the new Publix once it opens will carry the usual selection.

There are tons of threads praising and berating English and American foods.

This isn't one of either, but just a place where folks have found a particular good deal or find either locally, at a chain or online.

So, we can't say that Hershey's is like Candle Wax, then??????

Wow, thanks for this, SDDep! Does sound pretty easy.

However . . . I can forsee the drawback being that we'll eat all these beautiful home-made ones in no time, instead of limiting ourselves to just one each of the over-priced ones you get from a so-called "British Shop" . . . .

But this is just rumor, but I do know they pulled the main South African supply train.
The 25 year long Hershey distribution contract expires next year. It was probably the dumbest thing Cadbury ever did. Hershey will want to keep control of the Cadbury name in the US, pushing it down below it's own products as it's always done, except for the lucrative Easter season. Kraft/Mondelez will want to wrestle it out of Hershey's hands. Fans of quality chocolate will hope for the latter.

One of the first things i went for during my visit. Me and my sister wandered around the shops eating hot sauage rolls from the bakers. Yum.

The home made ones are so much better, the bought ones are nearly all pastry and very little sausage in them

I found FLANS in my local Kroger store...yes bacon and cheese, bacon and onion, broccoli and cheese, and they tasted like they were from "home" too, but to be honest, I try to make meals that incorporate the Southern menus with my Yorkshire ones it's much easier.
