God bless Twinkies and other American crap

Jessicasimpson_2 Confidential to American expats living in London and elsewhere in the United Kingdom:  Here are a few resources I've compiled for where you can buy American "stuff" in Britain.  But be forewarned that your U.S. urges for home will cost you a pretty pound.  A box of Twinkies will sell for about $12, and a box of Lucky Charms costs almost $18!

American shopping

American Soda Company

11 Shelton St., Covent Garden

Rosslyn Deli
Our personal favorite, located in London's beautiful Hampstead neighborhood.
