You know the feeling when you’ve been away from home for a while and you start craving things from home, like your own bed and some of your favourite foods. As a Canadian living in the UK I’ve had this feeling many times over the last 10 years. In addition, now that I tend to use the internet more and more for recipes I often come across North American recipes that have ingredients that I can’t find here.
Last week I came across American Soda, thanks to a tip-off from a twitter mate, who stock American products and deliver nationwide. I was like a kid in a candy shop! I didn’t know where to start. They have everything from Ding Dongs to Hamburger Helper! Sadly, I couldn’t find any Cheese Whizz which is one step away from Styrofoam.
The service was excellent and the prices/shipping are reasonable. I wouldn’t do my weekly shop there but I now have a stash of a few of my favourites in the cupboard for those homesick moments.
I’ll definitely be shopping there again. If you have any North American friends it would be a great place to buy them a slightly unique gift
Even if you don’t fancy shopping there it is worth a look at some of the weird and wonderful things we eat. No wonder obesity is an issue!
