Yummy Food Alert!!!

Hi My Loves!!!

As you know, if you have been reading or watching for a while, I'm originally from England and I talk about English foods every now and then. Well this last couple of weeks has been super exciting in the English food department! I have found 3 of my favorite yummies at regular grocery stores like Walmart and Albertsons! Normally I have to go to World Market (where the same foods are a tad more expensive) and they don't carry Weetabix at our local store.

I thought I would share with you, the ones that I have found that hopefully you can find too :)

Here's my goodies!

These are my most favorite cookies ever! McVities Milk Chocolate Digestives Biscuits. They are basically a wheat cookie on the bottom and milk chocolate on top. YUM!! These are a very typical English biscuit (cookie) and most people, if not everyone who has grown up in the UK has had one before. 

 I used to have to get them at World Market, so I rarely got them. When I was in Walmart this week, I couldn't believe when they were sitting on the top shelf just calling my name! They must have just started carrying them because I've never seen them before. I'm pretty sure they were under $2.00 too!!!

Next is another Walmart find. I'm pretty sure this is fairly new to being sold at Walmart. Normally I find it at World Market. It's our favorite curry sauce. Patak's Simmer Sauce Tikka Masala Curry. It's got such great flavor, makes a super quick and easy dinner and isn't too spicy for the weak sauce people like me, who can't take too much spice in their life :) 

Last but not least is my very favorite breakfast cereal. When I saw Jofus from LeFloofTV on youtube talking about it a while back, I instantly got a craving for it. Our World Market has never carried it before, so the only way for me to get it would be to order it online.... so I went without. However, the pregnancy craving for a specific food is much harder to forget than a craving when you're not preggy, so I decided to go on a Weetabix hunt. Luckily, I found some at Albertson's! It's so yummy and good for you too! I eat mine with cold milk like you would any other cereal.

It looks rather boring and a bit like hamster bedding but trust me, it's good! :)

Thanks for reading!

Hope you can find these goodies at your local stores too. If you do, let me know how you like them :)

Have a great Saturday!!!




  1. Mmm, some of ny British favourites too! I live in Scotland and one of our supermarket stores, Asda, has starting carrying some American goodies like Hershey chocolate and cheetos! Looks like we've had a swap haha!

    1. No way!! I live in Scotland and cheetos are my favourite thing EVER! Off to Asda I go! :)

  2. hahaha! Must be an England thing because these are my husband's favorite things also. That's just too funny when I saw your post.

  3. yumm those cookies look good! I have had similar cookies with the chocolate on one side, but a different brand.


  4. I am craving chicken curry after seeing the jar of Pataks. Any chance you and Jays recipe is around anywhere? :)

  5. I'm from England and must admit that I love our food! :D.


  6. Our "Weetabix" in New Zealand is called "Weet-bix"! How funny! Our looks slightly different though, a bit more golden and a bit skinnier. I love my weet-bix, I always have a tiny bit of hot water poured in the bowl first, then in go the weet-bix, then cold milk on top. I'm so happy you found your favorite products Sam! xx

  7. I love Weetbix with hot milk and brown sugar, soooo good!

  8. Funny, those three things are very readily available in Vancouver, Canada where I am. In fact, you can buy all three in the food aisle of my local pharmacy!

  9. I saw that Curry yesterday @ World Market (They had their pictures all 40% off, about to blog about the beaut I got!) and I thought of you, Sam!
    Hope your weekend has been a great one!

  10. I grew up in South Africa and moved to Canada 3.5 years ago and weetabix is my favourite cereal, glad I found it in Canada so I can still eat it every morning:)
