I'm not sure how that's relevant - they sell the strawberry-flavoured gelatin powder. I just need the plain variety!

Gelatine is derived from the collagen of bones of cattle and mainly pigs. Verifying the origin of the constiuent ingredients perhaps may mean that it would be sold in the pork section.

I once saw a Peppa Pig advent calender in the pork section of Park and Shop!

The pork section isn't just for pork, it's for meat products which is not halal. Although I'm not sure why they put vegetarian haggis there.

If you mean Scotch Pies, Park & Shop have them.

If you don't, then you're wrong.

Great thread idea. I'm looking for the individual packets that you pour into small bottles of water to add taste. I like the Lipton or Crystal Light brands, but any other kinds would do. There's also a kind that's a small bottle and you add just a few drops to a bottle for a nice taste/no calories. Some friends got some last week in Jordan, so I figure it has to be here somewhere, right?

I make pommy mince pies and I defy you to call them shyte. Plump fruit and lashings of alcohol in shortbread with clotted cream. Better than nasty horrible hobbit pies from NZ

To clarify, they look old and sad and so far that is how they have tasted.
I feel sorry for the residents of the countries you have lived in.
