Not tried them myself but some Tesco Extra stores have some Snyders stuff.


I’ll keep an eye out for them. I don’t go to those stores much as other shops are much closer.

I got some of those Snyder's Honey and Mustard from Tesco, they had jalapeno as well, didn't know they were broken pretzel pieces.

Quite strong tasting, think they will be excellent if you're drinking and craving something savoury.

Also REAL Buffalo Buffalo wings are something I already miss but what i woul have missed leavingh western new york state for say ..the UK.
Overall though I really think I would be perfectly happy with the cuisine of any country in Europe.


You would be fine here now Tom, as the UK has become very Americanised. Had it been say 40 yrs ago, it would have felt like stepping back into the dark ages, but not so now. I do miss A&B root beer though! No decent root beer here - you can order it but the shipping can be prohibitive.
Oh and I miss the Dairy Maid!!! (Never eat ice cream now).


Ben & Jerry's is supposed to be pretty good. Pretty widely available in the UK (at least online from a supermarket).

You could add extra cheese to your Wotsits. Melted or grated.

Had some Bisquick pancake mix and Aunt Jemima's syrup delivered this week. Had pancakes for breakfast. Yummy.

Are you asking or taking the piss. It's very common in the UK, available even from local pizza outlets (at a price).

I don’t think that would be quite the same. :gigglesnshit: The cheese on a Cheezie is more like a powder. As Gabby said, like a wotsit but very crunchy.

Get or make grated cheese. Let it all dry out and put it in a blender.
