Came across and amazing sweet shop in down town Novato in Marine County CA - British section - not a bad selection but expensive!!! 1 Curly Wurly $1.29 as opposed to 5 for £1 in the £ shop BUT i guess theres no £shop here so if the craving takes you and you are in Novato you know where to go

Curly Wurlys are pretty much their own food group in our house. We blow through them SO fast. Yum

Someone told me Marine was in the top 10 more expensive counties in the US so maybe why everything is so expensive - curlys included!

I saw these last night so I had to try them, I figure they will work for when I can not get my walkers bacon crips.

The Dunbar tea shop in Sandwich, MA, has a big range of Brit stuff, a bit pricey though, but we often stop for lunch or cream tea on the way to or from Cape Cod, as it's just 8 mins from the bridge.

Closer to home, Trader Joe's has some Brit-brand steel cut porridge, and their Irish breakfast tea would make the PG tips chimps jealous...

Where abouts in Boston are you? The Brit shop in Peabody isn't bad, though parking is a bit of a mare.

British Delights, in Westford, is also pretty good for selection and especially during sales....there's also British Supplies in Plymouth, near the BBC pub out that way that is supposed to be pretty good, sausages and bacon at least.

in West Roxbury/Brookline area, so Westford and Peabody a bit far out. And after 25 years here, not so desperate for old country treats.
We get the basics (digestives, Branston pickle) at the local Roche or Star market supermarkets. And you don't need a Brit store to make beans on toast! and I do a killer shepherd's pie.

Most definitely not, nothing can beat PG Tips out here! I tried the TJ's Irish breakfast out of desperation once and they do not come anywhere close to the taste of my beloved PG Tips

PG Tips is so over-priced here in my part of the States. I chuck just one TJ Irish bag in my medium-sized teapot & it lasts the husband & me much of the day. Those are serious teabags . . . & for less than half the price of PG Tips.

When I go to the UK I buy several large boxes of PG Tips...which means I bring a couple of thousand teabags back with me. I always declare them on the US customs form and they always put my bags through x-ray.
