Talking of cordial though, our local hippy dippy shop had some, but it was well expensive for the regular sized bottle, but worked out quite cheap if you got the bulk bottle, something like a 1.5l bottle? Can't remember, but worked out at half the price per volume I think...but it's such a weird little place to get in and out of that we've only checked the place out the once.
We finally made it to Myers of Keswick in NYC and took home some pork pies and a meat and potato pasty for the kids - they were all devoured in minutes! I think this will be a regular stop in the City from now on

I often take the kids to IKEA for the 99c breakfast and to watch the planes at Newark airport, I'll have to check out the food shop next time.

All this month Fresh and Easy are selling Nestle British candy for $1.19 instead of the usual $1.49. This includes Fruit Pastilles, Fruit Gums, Aero, Yorkie and Toffee Crisp. This does not apply to Cadbury - Flake and Crunchie are still $1.49.

Just tried some "Unexpected" Cheddar Cheese, from Trader Joe's....and it's really very good, especially as it's $3.50 a block.

Randomly saw some cadburys fingers on the edge of one of the aisles at Walmart earlier. The health kick I'm on right now meant I didn't buy them

Alas have never been able to eat myself sick of Cabburys once eat the kilo of dairy milk before boarding the plane.

I was shocked the other day the Cadburys fingers in wal-mart are the UK ones.

here in Michigan you can get some british food in Hiller's market and Meijers.you can even get haggis made in canada.
All can be abit expensive but my wee daughter cannot live without Heinz bake beans.

Wegmans had a bunch of Brit choc, like Aero's for $1.29 which is even less than at Hannaford's, which is usually pretty good for price.

Jacob's Crackers on the other hand were $2, which is a buck more than at Ocean State.

Did notice a couple of sections further down the ethnic aisle, a foreign knock off to the Wagon Wheel though, not tried it, but it looked good.
