Wow findus crispy pancakes...thats a blast from the past for me....ha..ha..loved them as a kid ...last time I heard them mentioned was in an episode of Rab C Nesbitt....its so funny that when you move oversea's you become a wee bit obsessed with food from home....not that you dont miss yer pals and family but I know for myself whenever Im home its time spent either connecting with family/friends or eating my way thru Glasgow's finest food establishments such as Gregg's bakery and all the sweetie shops...ha..ha..magic

Walmart seems to be getting on to something these days. The local one has McVities Digestives and my wife picked up a pack of Tetley tea a few days ago. I've also seen English Cheddar in the deli section (sadly, no more).

Big lots seems to be good for custard creams and chocolate bourbons. I've even seen genuine Cadbury's there on occasion. For a while, they had something that wasn't named Maltesers but was (same company but named something else for some reason).

For those that don't read backwards in this thread, there are a couple of sources I've found for some Brit foods.

1. Publix often has a Brit section with choccy bikkies, Mars bars, Lion, Yorkies and other chocolate bars, jams, custards, rice pud and other stuff.

2. Trader Joe's has frozen curry (that's as good as any US restaurant!), Irish and English cheddar, Lurpak and/or Kerrygold, English style crumpets and a few other bits you have to search for.

Just read an artical on Kerrygold butter, if the tub says NEW on it, it's not, it's been whipped to spred and and not the same as the butter sticks, those are the "real" Kerrygold not the tubs. Interesting

This is the closest I have seen.






Having said that, Amazon sells them, if all else fails.
