WOW, thank you so much everyone for your very thoughtful comments!!! I really appreciate it. I had knit scarves for them and was looking for some things to fill up the box. That's a good thing to know not to bother with chocolate. I can definitely get some Lucky Charms and grape jelly. I wonder why grape jelly is expensive in the U.K.? My friends live in Cornwall. I had no idea jerky is hard to get in some places in the U.K. We have all kinds here - American beef jerky, Chinese beef jerky... we even have salmon jerky and chicken nugget jerky. No Biltong, but I guess that would sort of be missing the point


What's KD?

Thanks so much again for your thoughts. I really appreciate it! Have a great weekend!

Hmm, I'm not in UK at the moment YT, when I am you'll know by my posts and if I forget nudge me and I'll sort it out for you. In London its easy (BTW Selfridges and Harrods stock it, both would, I am sure, post or deliver) I also get jerky locally in Somerset and pretty much every deli and many butchers in southeast. Anyway, as I say, if I forget remind me.

Redkitty, DH tells me I am barking mad and its hard to find Reese;s pieces, but agrees its not so bad to find the cups, which I LOVE!

I hear they don't have Oreos in the UK but have never checked up on it.

I think Oreos would be a great idea!

I love all that British chocolate though. Yum. Smarties, penguins, bournville, aeros, salt and vinegar crisps (not chocolate but tasty just the same!)

We get oreos in England, but they are pricey! Most blockbusters sell them, and a lot of the supermarkets. The special ones, like double stuff etc are very hard to get hold of though....that would be a very good idea!

This thread is making me giggle, the discussion like a sort of a fabled country, the UK where the rest of the world think we all ride horses, live in places called Under Littlehampton or something similar and wear tweed, rofl!

Oooooooooh, I wish all the men DID wear kilts, I love a man in a kilt. Kind of upset that my DH has no right to wear one, still, might get him into my family tartan one day ;)
