Actually, this particular site is for deliving British items to folks in Japan. There are separate pages for American goods delivered the same way.

I know the one in San Carlos, but didn't realize it was a chain. Many of the chocolate bars from Canada are also sold in the UK (and elsewhwere) but insane purists prefer the actual real Canadian stuff (if that's what you grew up with, anyway). I think it's slightly different. But maybe not.

Ironic timing since I spent about a half an hour today surfing for some of these products and deciding if it was worth the disposable income or not.

  My wife and I discovered Aero Mint candy bars as a "last minute, use up our left-over pounds" at Heathrow on the return from our honeymoon.
  Was all set to mail-order some for our one-year anniversary when I discovered the British Food Centre in Cambell, CA. They had stacks of them at just over 1$ each. Picked up a few cans of Bass Shandy and diet Lilt....

And don't forget www.alwayscanadian.com (and others in a similar vein) for Kraft Dinner (known here in the USA as Mac 'n Cheese, but always KD back home), Kraft Peanut Butter (what??? Kraft makes peanut butter?), butter tarts, Aero chocolate bars (and minty Aeros) and all that other good stuff.
