I got pickled onions, I used to live on the things years ago, the first one almost killed me with the vinegar going down the wrong way.
Was wondering which Harris Teeter?

So today I was in Safeway, and maybe some of you knew this but it was news to me that they had a British munchie aisle.. so see pics below and have a look in your local store.

WOW and I bitch about paying $3.99 for Bisto.

what the hell was the purple bistro?

We can get chicken one for $5 around here but that's it...we normally get a tub on our way to Maine as it's often on sale in Freeport.

Need to get some stuffing....would make own, but as it's just me who likes it, I can't be arsed, so out of a box is nice enough for the now and again efforts

My OH has been looking for Jaffa Cakes for a while and hasn't been able to find them, but a friend in Atlanta says she can buy them at her local Publix so she's sending him a 'care package'!

You can UK food at most of the stores in town but Meijer seems to have the biggest selection. I go to World Market every so often to get a stash of CurlyWurly bars!

Speaking as somebody who lived in Slough for 4 years, if you think it's better than Houston remind me never to visit Houston.
