As with many expats, there are certain foods and sweets that we forever crave from our homeland.
The desire does not diminish over time, if anything, it seems to increase, knowing that it is something not readily available, and that we have to go to great lengths in order to satisfy the yearning.
My main source of procuring English food items, involved placing an order online to one of the specialty import shops, usually three of fours times a year, or a visit to our nearest Military Base, where the commissary stocks their shelves with ample selections of International foods.
Thankfully these are no longer my only options.
Ever since the Publix grocery store-chain moved into town, I have my very own imported English food isle, everything a sane Englishman or woman could possibly desire !
All the biscuits ( cookies) and chocolate bars a person could eat.
Bottles of favorite cordial drinks, and tins of beans and custard powders, and gravy-making OXO cubes, and pickled onions, and HP sauce.......oh the selection is endless.
