    Well 'ang on a mo

    I love fresh bread from the bakery and given the choice I'd have that every day so if you've some good suggestions where to get that in Orlando I'm up for it!

    We eat Warburtons because we reckon it's the best out of the pre-sliced, throw a couple in the freezer pre-sliced stuff in the supermarkets.

    I wouldnt eat warburtons over fresh warm bakery bread if given the chance :)

    I do love sandwiches but just can't get "normal" uk bread/butter out there :/
    I found anything with 'Italian' in the title was much more like the bread we have here taste wise I used to get it at Walgreens because it didn't involve getting a ride off my neighbour to publix/target

    I definitely prefer Publix, much more like the type of supermarket we have in the UK

    OK

    Now if I was as bad as Terry I'd say dough

    Keith, get thee to Whole Foods, for heaven's sake! They have several selections of nice butter there, Kerrygold, Lurpak, Plugra, and yes I do like Land O Lakes unsalted for a basic butter to cook with. For spreading there is a lovely goat's milk butter at Whole Foods and a super lovely butter from the Emilio Romana region of Italy.

    Bread. Buy the bread from Publix bakery. You can get whole loves or sliced. Or, go to Yalaha where there is real bread. Real, honest to goodness BREAD.

    Remember there is one on Orange Ave in downtown Orlando now too.

    Panera tries to do a decent bread, but I don't care for it much.

    Pre sliced packaged bread? Nature's Own.

They tend to use hot not boiling water and as we tea drinkers know ;-) it must be made with boiling water. Then add half and half or, gulp, cream, rather than milk and you have a useless cuppa.

    When made properly, even normal US lipton/nestea can be ok

    Anyway I agree with everyone else, you don't need to take anything much since you'll be able to purchase it out there without it taking up room/weight in your luggage.

    I think that the resorts and restaurants do not serve it at a boil because of insurance purposes. There was a large law suit involving McDonalds a few years back when a coustmer spilt her coffee on her lap and got burned.

    Nah I just think they just don't know they're supposed to. After all, we were at Ruth's chris who serve the plates at xhundred degrees and all those sizzling platters.

    I just think a lot of them don't understand that tea is different from coffee in that way.

    I remember my first trip to Walmart... I was at the Subway there getting a sub, and the British couple in front of me asked for a cup of tea... the guy (who, let's face it couldn't be bothered either way) handed them a paper cup and pointed to the tea (sweet, ICE tea!) they came back complaining that it was ice cold and that they wanted hot tea. So he filled it with tea and then put hot water in it from the coffee machine

    I'm just thankful that I enjoy ice tea otherwise I couldn't have coped in Florida
