and breakfast sausages are verrrrry similar to the ones you buy in the UK, they are smaller but the taste is almost the same.

Like mint Julips and Yorkshire Pud Sharon, sounds good to me.

Went in to Big Lots, and there were Crawford's Custard Creams and Bourbon Creams, which I grabbed up right away. Mind you, the first 3 had a little corner broken off, so I had to go to the 4th to do a proper QC test.

$2.85 for Irn-Bru, I paid $7.26 for 6, curious if the new Publix once it opens will carry the usual selection.
The one in Anderson SC has recently started stocking the brit items, so you're in with a chance.

I use to love Boubon creams when Peek Freans made them, don't think they make them anymore, they just don't taste the same.

I've just found a British section in the supermarket in my new town in NY. I'm totally thrilled, although $1.49 for a packet of Hula Hoops seems a little pricey!

Not sure I made my point but Cadbury's stuff, McVities, Nestlé and most of the common UK brands can be found at any Canadian supermarket. We don't have everything but we do have most of the common everyday stuff and its got to be cheaper to ship it to the US than from the UK. I've been into World Market in Phoenix and they have Aero bars and McVities shipped over from the UK for example. Presumably because they buy from the "official" importer but it has to be cheaper to ship from Canada.

I know our postal costs are pretty high, but they're not that high.

What I find in Canada is that there is a "season" for everything, never clear on why, but if you were to go to Loblaw's in November when they get all the Christmas stuff in they have mountains of stuff from the UK.

Anyway I'm off to the butchers to get some pork pies.

Tyrrell's crisps, they have them in Wegmans for $3.50 usually, but are on sale for $2 a bag.

Building 19, had them in for a buck though...

No idea, there was about 2 flavours in Building 19, but Wegmans seemed to have a few more, about 4 of them.

Never tried them, but they sounded pretty good.

Possibly not that pricey, I'm in the UK visiting at the moment and bought a bag of nice n spicy nik naks that set me back a quid And the chocolate bars are nearly up to a quid a piece. Made me realise the price we have been paying for stuff in the US isn't as bad as we thought.

In May I spent £3.50 on 24 packs of smoky bacon crisps, I noticed some items there is a great difference others fairly insignificant.

Just in case any of you want to drive north, this is the sort of thing to look for (plus I just thought I'd make you suffer):

Actually that bacon says "product of USA" on it, so presumably it is sold under another brand label somewhere in the US.

Cadbury's here is a mixed bag, some of it is imported from the UK (like the bar in the picture, but I've never seen that one on sale in the UK) and for example some British Cadbury's is sold under a different name here, e.g. "Caramilk" instead of "Caramel" although it usually is also imported from the UK. However some of the Cadbury's stuff is made in Ontario and it's a bit crap, like regular Dairy Milk (except the 1Kg bars).
