Thanks for the responses about the Honeycrisps, guys! That is sad, and I'll sort of keep an eye out, but I figured they just weren't here. I didn't want to rule it out, because like y'all have shown me, I can get most things here! I'll try Empire. Thanks!


i can't say i've ever seen them in any grocers, and tbh i'm not surprised since we have so many varieties that grow here already i'm not sure it'd be worth anyone's while importing them. just try some of the british apple varieties, you may find something similar amongst them!

I've not found them despite checking Morrisons (unlikely), Sainsbury's (slightly more likely), and Waitrose (my last hope). Anyone know if y'all get/where I can get Honeycrisp apples? Its that time of year and I'm sure I'll pay out the nose for them, but I just want one or two for seasonal memory and awesome tastiness reasons.

Sorry, I know this is the "I found this" thread. I didn't know if there was another. Please direct me if there is.


I've just been to Lidls (to buy my almond Christmas biscuits!) and they had Honeycrisp apples- they were branded as Honey Crunch but on a closer look the small print (where the farmer name, country etc is) said honeycrisp, unfortunately I had my hands full of a billion things so forgot to remember where they came from etc but this post pinged into my brain (serial lurker, first time poster!)

Spotted Masa arepa on a Brazilian stall in the Arndale in Manchester on Saturday.

My local asian store has just started selling glutinous rice flour and panko.
Trouble is now I have a bag of glutinous rice flour and no clue what to do with it.

Mochi! Icing sugar + rice flour + water in a tupperware/takeaway container. Shake it all up and stir it. Microwave with the lid on, then with it off. Roll into blobs. Roll blobs in coconut. Refrigerate. Salivate. Masticate.


This made my head explode a little. Never even thought of making them myself.

Also, anyone seen anywhere that sells kala namak? My bag I found years ago in a little Asian grocer in Leeds is running low...

AAAAAND.... has anyone seen sambal oelek? Or chipotles in adobo (for a less than extortionate price, Whole Foods! £4 a hit, are you crazy?!)

I can send you a bag of kala namak. I can get it dead cheap. I can also get sambal oelek dead easy but it'll cost a bit more to post. Don't they have it In Taj?

Rach, I was passing the Indian shop today so I picked up 2 bags of black salt. PM your address and I'll send one. The other bag goes to a bonus person who can't get it and PMs me.

I'm not sure if it's considered to be very hard to find, but Alara in London sells vegusto cheese and some of their fake meats as well.

Alara has the meats too. The cheese has been at VX for ages.

I didn't know! For some reason I thought Vx had stopped carrying Vegusto and only sold Vegourmet so I didn't bother to look for it when I went. In any case, Vegusto is amazing. I think I might leave all of my belongings here when I move back to Montreal and just fill my suitcase with Vegusto products and bourbon creams.

I ordered liquid smoke online and thought of this thread: http://www.scorchio.co.uk

They have chipotles, adobo and all sorts, I ordered waaaay more spicy stuff than I will get through really.

Efcliz has anyone PMed you for that salt? I've had my friends all looking out for it locally but no luck.

Yes, it's gone. I can definitely get more but I'm not sure when I'll next be there. It's not far at all, but not on my normal route. I'll grab a bag next time I'm that way.

Amazing, thank you! Really big Asian population round here but no sign of it.

I know this is an old thread, but chipotles in adobe is really easy to make. I get my dried chipotles in tesco in the special ingredients section (I should say that my tesco is an extra large one), but I'm sure you can buy them in waitrose. Here's the recipe:
