American Food news

ASDA has started carrying Pepperidge Farm Cookies and Goldfish crackers (called Finz). My kids love them.  There is one ASDA in Birmingham off the M6, that carries Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, but haven't seen it in any others. Shame we have Kraft up in Banbury and they can't stock it more. ASDA also has Carters Root beer which is bliss to me, although it something my kids and husband can't stand. TESCO in Abingdon and Cowley, stocking USDA beef, although not all Tescos in the area seem to carry it.

My Dad is retired military and he recently came to visit.  We decided to go to the Air Force Base in Croughton, near Brackley for a shop.  I could get on the base as his guest and could even go into the Commissary/Exchange but retired military not allowed to shop here, unless they are resident and have registered  to do so.


  1. The Tesco in Swindon stopped carrying the USDA beef, but not sure why. The Tesco store in Banbury and Kidlington didn't have it as well the last time I checked. Not showing online...could it be that the British Farmers kicked up too much of a fuss over it?

  2. Here is the link to Tesco's online shopping page showing American ribeye steak.

  3. Sainsburys has started carrying pepperidge farm products such as their cookies and Goldfish (called Finz here).
