Which one do you miss? I expect every ex-pat has their own list of goodies they would take to their desert island (or, in my case, northern Arizona). Here are a few of mine:
Oh how I miss a decent cuppa! OK, you can get them in the USA – if you’re willing to pay $13 for a small box, which I’m not. I shall certainly be stocking up on these next time I visit the UK…
Love it or hate it, it’s been a British breakfast staple for several generations. Dr Nick and I were both raised on Marmite-on-toast and Marmite sandwiches for tea…
I admit to cheating on the custard front – I much prefer instant. But whether you make it the old-fashioned way or like me prefer to boil a kettle, it’s still the ultimate in comfort food.
Gravy as we know it. Order gravy in the USA and you’ll get something white and glutinous, triggering one of those ‘spit or swallow’ conversations…
Fray Bentos steak & kidney pie
Dr Nick’s favourite. Don’t ask me why, but there are some things a man just can’t go without.
Walkers cheese & onion crisps
No other crisp even comes close. Why does the cheese and onion crisp not exist in America? Discuss.
Which Great British Icon do you miss? Which food items would you miss if you lived away from your home country? I’d love to know!
