BJ's have double packs of large Pataks curry sauces for $5, which is a couple bucks a jar cheaper than the regular grocery stores. Selections were a bit limited mind, but worth a punt if you like the ones they have on offer.

They do triple packs of Pataks in Costco, although two of the jars are of the same sauce (I forget which)

I just ate some HobNobs from Cost Plus. Either HobNobs are just not as good as I remember them being, or they didn't travel well in shipping, because they tasted pretty bad. Same with Heinz beans, they were disgustingly sweet and I couldn't eat them. I've come to prefer the vegetarian Bush Beans baked beans

People urinate in the aisles of my WalMart. Last week someone got stabbed, again. If that makes me a snob, I'll take it.

Arghhh nasty, really, mine is very nice actually clean and on the same par as a Safeway, granted thats not the norm, I have been in some nasty ones as well, in Modesto CA OMG!! Vile......you're off the hook stick to Target lol, but then again they probably won't have any British goodies in your Wally World if its in that much of a skanky area.

Wally World definitely depends on location! Although they can change dramatically just within a few miles. Our local one is ok, although hubby won't buy anything that has been done or packaged in-store, like their bakery goods, as there was once a story in the news of rats being found there

We don't do a lot of shopping there, but hey, they don't have everything in Aldi So we go in occasionally, now thanks to the mother in law, we have a BJ's (snigger) card, so we have another option too now.

I will defo have a look to see if our local Wally World has Brit goods in, next time we go.

Walmart around here is a scary, scary place.

Kinda dirty too.

Walmart makes me glad I'm not from round here. I thought people watching in England was fun but here it's something else.

I spotted digestives at the Christmas Tree Shop the other day

It's true. I've noticed Walmarts in big military towns tend to be incredibly neat and tidy.
