This is a public service announcement. This is not a test.

I will be arriving in the green and pleasant land in Mid February for 10 days.

During this time you might see shortages of the following items:

Bacon, sausages, sausage rolls, pork pies, quavers, skips, walkers smoky bacon crisps, every single type of cheese, crumpets, soda bread, tiger bread, any type of Warburton’s bread, Tescos teeth and lips candy, curly wurlys, Marks and Spencer’s bras and underwear, egg and cress sandwiches, prawn mayonnaise sandwiches, Yorkshire puddings, all types of roast dinners, custard, jam roly poly, Chinese king prawn curry with crispy fried noodles, all the fishes and chipses, custard creams, jammie Dodgers, penguins, cocktail sausages and did I mention bacon?

This list is not intended to be all-inclusive, and other items will be considered, subject to availability and if I can buy stretchy yoga pants.

That is all. Carry on. As you were.

Americans wouldn’t know a proper chipolata if you smacked them with one. Great Italian sausages mind.

I can, but we have to buy it from a special company in New York and it’s expensive so we tend to make big orders twice a year at about £200 each. Then I have to ration it. I did sacrifice 3 packs of chipolatas to make proper pigs in blankets for Xmas dinner but my rude family ate most of them Rolling Eyes

I follow a few expat sites and have seen recipes about making your own bacon which I might try. But nothing, and I mean nothing, beats a proper fry up in a greasy spoon caff.

Well... hopefully after we get out of the EU and organise a bit of a trade deal with the USA, there will be more opportunity for UK food and confectionary to be sold over there...!

American-style bacon is awesome, even if it is really bad for you -- which is why they probably stopped selling it at Morrisons.

I hope if there's an America-UK trade deal post-Brexit, it includes an easier path for citizenship for Americans over here. That would be a real blessing for me and my family.

But nicko, do you really think Brexit will be done in a few weeks? I'm nearly 100 percent sure it won't happen.

We have places that sell that stuff pop up. Even get expats to run them. I think the typical American, especially Texans prefer stuff with a bit more kick. There is no shortage of "foreign" food around here. International grocery stores with products from all over the world are located in all major cities. It's just that British food just never seems to catch on.

You’d be surprised. What little stuff I can find in Kroger or World Market or what I have cooked has converted a lot of people. I had to make 12 dozen sausage rolls this holiday because of demand from friends, and family. I got very few, the brutes.
