Talking World Market

I am in bliss!!!!! This store opened last week (2 within a 30 mile radius!) and I think my waistline is going to be increasing dramatically!

I know people have mentioned this store before, but there was never one remotely close - and I was thrilled to see that they didn't just have the usual measly "international" food section like Schnooks with their crappy selection.

This place is great! They had tins of biscuits (Fox) for Christmas, selection boxes, a full Cadburys section (all made in England), Walkers crisps, WHITE lemonade (great I can have a decent long vodka now!) and a bunch of other stuff - my husband is now a sworn convert and says he will never eat Hersheys choc or Hostess cup cakes again haha. He finally conceded that it tastes like vomit smells

The new Fox's Creations biccies with rasperry and white choc are yummy, I feel another trip coming on to stock up.....

Yep, they are top shops. Maybe a tad pricey, but well worth it imo.

I looked too, and the website is all show and no content - how about that?
They have Heniz, Pataks, Cadburys, Foxs, McVities, and some stuff like rice pudding, christmas pudding etc.

Sounds like my kinda store..... All I have left from the last time anyone brought stuff over is my stash of Tesco's Custard, Decent tea bags and Beechams Cold and Flu stuff. That works SOOOO much better than from anything over here.
