For those who are not familiar with Leibniz, I think "Tea Biscuits" is the closest thing that they can relate to, as Verablue suggested.

I can get arrowroot biscuits in big supermarkets in south of UK, I've see them, never tried them. I have head them. So, like a McVities rich tea? Is that what is the closest, if you cannot get arrowroot or the original?

Dill pickles: Have you tried the Jewish retailers round North London? ;) I'm sure they could arrange sending them to you.

Where are you at Chef Jen? Even a large trunk wouldn't be big enough for all the things I want from my home in the USA lol !!!!! And that includes alot more than just food. I figured the easiest solution is just to move back which I can't wait to do!!

If you said "butterkeks" to me without showing me the picture, I would think it was a butter poundcake. That is what keks are similar to here in Bulgaria. Sometimes they call muffins that too.
