Interesting site! It's good to see some of the stuff I only ever see on holiday.

Reece's Peanut Butter Cups are a lot cheaper at Asda Robert.

In the same line of shopping... there's a Cyber Candy shop in Birmingham that does all this stuff too, and a smaller one (I forget the name) in Solihull's Touchwood shopping centre...

Ugh, check out the seasonal items for christmas and thanksgiving!! Do they really think that's how we cook our holiday meals?! The cranberry sauce maybe but some of the rest! Wow, that's some of the worst holiday candy I've seen!!:yes:

Ooh thank you for that I might go for a nose this week!

Probably won't buy a lot as I have cut all that sort of stuff out completely but it will be nice to have a look! :D

I meant waffle mix :rolleyes: for the Mickey waffle iron and Aunt Jemimas syrup

Spoke to the chap a few times - lovely guy - I asked about things like pink lemonade etc and he said some stuff he wasn't allowed to import as is contravened EU poisons laws :eek: - think thast some of the colourants and additives

If you use him please tell him where you heard about him :D pretty please

Libby's pumpkin makes the BEST pumpkin pies :yes:

and my dad does use Stoevetop as a base for his dressing and that's the best stuff ever :yes:

yeah, that candy selection was awful.

My mom uses Libby as well and loves them, so does everyone else....well, except me, I don't like the taste of pumpkin pies.

I personally love stovetop. :D

Well I went this morning - definitely worth a visit - I didn't buy much at all just some old bay seasoning and a pumpkin bread mix, I was just happy to get my stuff packed in a brown paper bag! :lol:

I agree on Libby's, that's what I use too! I meant that some of the stuff was so basic( buisquick ect, ) that it didn't seem very special for the holidays!

As I was looking at the site I was thinking about how expensive the stuff is compared to what I pay at the grocery store. Then I remembered how expensive the UK stuff is over here and realized that actually those prices aren't too bad really.
