The part I found obviously hadn't gone through the mincer otherwise I would be none the wiser and a happy banger eater.

From the recently opened Publix in Knoxville TN. One medium sized fortune already spent, more to follow I suspect.

I'm pretty sure I could blow a lot of money there.

Mmmmm Branston Pickle!!!

I'm only just realising now a few months after moving the stuff I miss. I honestly never though I was gonna miss branston pickle and marmite, but I do I'll be bringing some stuff back in October. My (USC) hubby loves Kendal Mint Cake, so a few bars of that will be packed too.

Have you tried amazon.com? They have a gourmet section and it might cost an arm and a leg but when you're running out of the Branston somethings got to give...

I haven't succumbed yet to online ordering I guess as I haven't had any here yet, I have been ok with it! But when I stock up and bring some stuff back, and THEN run out, that will be the test!

But the idea of a cheddar and branston sarnie is making me drool

Last week, we discovered Trader Joe's.

While not Brit foods, they do a really good Indian Butter Chicken frozen meal that comes with Basmati rice and is probably the best Indian I have eaten since I came here (including restaurants!!). I also have a Lamb Vindaloo that I haven't tried yet.

They have a range of frozen Naan bread that just requires a short warm in the oven, too.

The best thing about Trader Joe's is the prices. They are comparable to a 'normal' grocery store with a quality that's close to Whole Paycheck...er...Foods.

I love Trader Joe's - do most of my shopping there... have great cheese too!

Why, Orangepants, I`d just lobbed some Tesco`s sausages in with the roast chicken, how appropriate I should read your post!
Sorry, should explain I`m back in the land of marmite!

That's interesting. I just heard yesterday there is a TJ opening about 40 miles away. Was wondering if it would be worth the trip. Could be

Trader Joes has some decent low priced wine if you like to stock up. It also has better food (and some European chocolate) than the run of the mill supermarkets so from that point of view I`d say its worth a trip!

We got some Artisan Vermont Cheddar that is quite possibly the best piece of cheese I've eaten, too. It's aged at least three years and is creamy and really full of flavour (I didn't mention it in my first post because just not British!). Oh, and it's only $5.99 a pound!

The nearest one is over an hour's drive from us, so a 40-mile straight shot is a no-brainer!

We got a cartful (including some beer) and we usually play the game of 'guess how much the bill will be'. I said $150 and the wife said $120. Imagine our (pleasant) surprise when it was $92.

...and yes, wine selection and price is great, too. A big choice at $5.99 and up.

Wegmans, down our way at least, still has massive amounts of Cadbury's chocolate and the chap there mentioned they didn't have any problems with getting stock, for now at least.

One thing that sucks a little, the lovely Welsh cheese, Colliers has gone up from $8 a pound to $11.
