A few weeks back in London, I wandered across a 'USA Food Store' (between Holland Park and Notting Hill Gate tube stations).
Curious, I entered. The shop wasn't massive and as you might imagine, filled with mostly unhealthy looking things.
Frosties are called 'Frosted Flakes' (Tony is still present), lots of Hershey chocolate bars and of course, Ramen Noodles (that look just like any other instant noodles).
However, when I saw it, standing there in the far corner of their cooler, I knew I had to try it.
£1.25 for a regular UK size can. I'm not a soft drink drinker but I've seen this stuff so much over the internet and never before in real life, I felt compelled to try it. (Two friends later told me that it used to be common in England but I'd never come across it).
The taste is hard to describe, not bad, quite nice. But it had a thickness to it, like being on the cusp of becoming a syrup. I looked at the ingredients and thought the 46 grams of sugar might the reason behind that, so decided to pour away the last half.
Worth a try but hardly something I recommend.
Any interesting, good or bad, food products that aren't common to the UK that you ladies can share an insight/experience on?
