Not a chance!!

(I grew up in Maidenhead and spent most of my youth trying to avoid Slough!)

I know that quite a few of the supermarkets in Florida, for example around Orlando, have a British section, but I've never seen that here in Charlotte, NC. World Market have some British goodies such as chocolate and biscuits, but not much else. Imagine my surprise when I popped into a Harris Teeter on my way back from college and came across a British section on the shelves. Needless to say I just couldn't walk past

For anyone who lives in Charlotte its the Harris Teeter, just off Johnston Road. The address is 15007 John Delaney Dr

Enjoy, and think of me when you indulge

When we were in Montreal a few months ago I bought bags of Aero balls. They were like Maltesers but all Aero chocolate and the bags were bigger...much bigger ...they were fab. If I see some more I'll send you some.
