A whole bunch of stuff that most Americans won't eat, so they won't even consider stocking them!

Peperamis. We have a Scottish bakery called Ackroyds near us that will ship you black pudding, pies and pasties (if you're desperate enough to pay the delivery charge!)

Or if they do stock it, be prepared to pay. It's possible to find most things as long as you're prepared to pay $5 for a tin of beans or pay a lot for "plus shipping".

Some of the above items are available at Wegman's and we get our loose Yorkshire Gold tea from Amazon. My single addition to the list:

Vimto cordial

I sometimes get Vimto at an Wegman's supermarket. They did not have any today, just Iron Bru. When ever I go to Wegman's I ask the cheese section if they have a Welsh cheese, Black Bomber, but they only have Collier's cheddar.

You can't get Vimto cordial though, just canned fizzy stuff.
Trader Joe's might have some other cheese options. We're surrounded by Amish farms that make some amazing cheeses.
