The orange ones are awesome, for some strange reason they're "limited edition" though, like I said, weird seasons of food in Canada. The regular ones and peppermint ones you can get all the time though. Plus the Wispa-type Aero bars are called "Mirage" here for no apparent reason.

Also we have dark chocolate Aeros which I've never seen in the UK. They're not very good though, the chocolate is too brittle, they disintegrate as soon as you bite into them.

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).
I like the Cadbury's Cashew and Coconut Chocolate bars...not keen on the pretzel. I love the regular chocolate Aero balls.

Dark chocolate Aero...I remember them from years ago in the UK.

One thing I have noticed here is that it is possible to still get sausage rolls that contain sausage, rather than being 99% roll.

Another product I've not seen since leaving Sheffield is Cunningham's pickled onions...they were the very best.

They sound familiar....I think I've seen them around here, either that or it's something very similar sounding.

There's weirdly quite a lot of good pickles here though, all weird Brazilian stuff though, but not the same as Branston or those pickled onions, but good all the same.

Cunningham's is a Sheffield company...now owned by Henderson's I believe the relish people.

I found various Pasco curry sauces in Big Lots of all places. All genuine "made in Wigan" for $1.50 a pop. Haven't had any yet but I'm making a Chicken Korma for tomorrow night.

I don't think it's actually owned by Henderson's, it was bought by one of the guys who worked with Henderson's. No idea if he still has it or not, I believe you can still buy the products but not sure if they are still made in Sheffield. I'm there in a couple of weeks want me to bring you some over if I can find them

Thank you but I'm sure you'll have enough British goodies to bring back with you.

In NW Washington at Grocery Outlet stores... Pilgrim's Choice Red Leicester and Londoner Cheddar cheese $2.99. (btw, I love Wensleydale w/cranberries and w/apricots) Also McVitie's Digestive biscuits 99cents.

The digestives are a great deal. I've only seen them at $3+
I used to be spoiled in Texas. Four different supermarkets had a range of British stuff, and World Market had almost everything else if you're willing to pay their prices.
These days, Amazon bulk buys are the only way I can get my baked beans!
