I decided to try to find some American food things here in the UK this afternoon, and searched the internet. Just for your amusement, I have made a list of some of the stuff you have been writing about....check this out:
Yellow Cake mix - £3.25
Chocolate Chip cookie mix - £3.25
Cream cheese frosting - £3.00
Reeses Peanut Butter baking chips - £4.75
Graham Crackers- £4.79
Kraft Macaroni and cheese - £3.35
Velveeta shells - £3.99
Velveeta (16oz)- £5.85
Crisco - £4.40
Tin of pumpkin - £2.10
Tin creamed corn - £1.99
Tin Rotel tomato and chilli - £2.25
A1 steak sauce - £5.49
Candy Corn - £2.65
The £:$ rate is in your favour at the moment - it has been as much as 2:1 but is now about £1=$1.65.
Hmmmm. If I were an American and missing home, I would have a problem. This is unbelievably expensive! But then, we are a long way from America. I also discovered why we don't get Canola Oil here, by the way - it is apparently genetically modified. Monterey Jack Cheese can be substituted with block mozzarella or gouda.
I was actually looking for the equivalent of your biscuit cans. That is a problem. We can get croissants in a can in the refrigerated section of our supermarkets, but I have not seen any other kind. Maybe I will go and hunt.
