Crisps not Cardboard – Visited the British Isles store this weekend. Beware! Many items past sell by date. Pointed out to the manager/owner that Cheese and Onions Crisps (chips) were two months passed their sell by date. Am guessing would have been like eating cardboard. He didn't care less and thought that I was trying to get some money knocked off and pointed at the discount basket. What an absolute cheek! Wouldn't like to think how old that stuff was! He is well aware that selling items out of date in the UK is illegal, but obviously not in the US? Yes, we miss our good old British grub ... but we are not desperate! Stick to Kroger/Randalls etc where at least everything is edible.
Home away from home! – I first heard about British Isles, through my boss. I went there as I had been looking to find British candy and canned food. It was like a dream come true, the only thing is it is quite expensive. I know they have to import the products, but if they are going to charge so much, then they should at least make sure it is in date, But I will still buy from there.
Note for other expats, there is also British food, at selected Krogers as well as Fiesta.
