STOP! Before you make that move to the UK, you need to ask yourself, ‘What American food is not available in the UK?’
Yes, Sunny friends, it is true, there are some food items that you will find yourself trying to smuggle across the border. And, I think you’ll be very surprised to find out what they are.
On my recent trip to the States, I spent some time in a local grocery store to photograph, purchase and eat some of these American treats.
American Food not Available in UK #5- Movie Candy!
There isn’t an American kid around that hasn’t yelled “Hey Kool Aid!” hoping this would happen:
I tried it in the grocery aisle while staring at this shelf. Unfortunately, I wasn’t as lucky as the kids in that commercial.
American Food not Available in UK #3- Sugar for Brekkie!
The morning battle that takes place every time Mr. Sunny and I go out for breakfast is never-ending. He just can’t understand how Americans eat sweets (like donuts) in the morning. We have an entire industry built on a jacked up breakfast. Take a look…
If you want this type of American treat you’re in for more than a sugar shock. It’s safe to say that you’ll need to have it via a special delivery, and the prices will give you a sticker shock!
American Food not Available in UK #2- Peanut Butter
Ok, so peanut butter might slowly be making its way in to the UK, but not at the magnitude an American expects. We have reduced fat, chunky, organic…
Doesn’t that just look like a jar of ooey gooey LOVE?
And, I’m sure you could predict this next American ‘gem.’
Hey, it’s made with ‘whole grain’ so it’s gotta be healthy, right?
American Food not Available in UK #1- My Best Bud
One of my favourite memories of my dad is the day he tried a new beer on a boat outing last summer. He loved it!
Leave it to the Americans to mix vegetables and beer. This American liquid sunshine mixes a classic American-style lager and Clamato Tomato juice. For more on the crazy beer, Read here .
Yep. It looks like tabloid magazines are clearly an international love.
So, Sunny friends, what do you think? Any of you include this contraband in your luggage when packing for the UK? Brits, what are your thoughts on the Chelada beer?
