Default Mince pies?

I am wondering about mince pies... I don't remember seeing them anywhere last couple of Decembers. I suppose the problem is, they usually contain alcohol, but there must be alcohol-free versions? Would welcome any suggestions where I might find them. Or German Lebkuchen.

Covent Garden and some other fresh soups can be found in an aisle-end chiller, just outside the entrance to the Pork section of Waitrose in Dubai Mall. I also noticed some crumpets there - hadn't see those anywhere before.

You can get organic eggs in Spinneys (perhaps not all) as well as Waitrose (French standard, Agriculture Biologique). But they always seem to be at least a month old by the time they get here! Not so easy to poach...

All the main supermarkets have mince pies. You can buy pre-packed and the ones they make in the store bakery. My faves are from Park and Shop. Of course, they are alcohol free, which reminds me, my alcoholic M&S luxury Xmas pud must have landed by now hehe....

Default Cleaning products

I am a bit of a cleaning products freak. I use an American non-bleach whitener called White Brite and/or Napisan for whitening. I use Shout colour catcher sheets so colours don't run. Shout stain remover with spout brush to take out stains. A wax stick stain remover to immediately pre-treat stains so they can be washed later. Wright's cream silver polish for polishing my silver. Goo Gone for candle wax. Which supermarkets are best stocked for this kind of stuff? TIA.

You can get Napisan (or similar) from most supermarkets - Spinney, Choitrams, etc. Shout and Stain Devils too. Goo Gone and Desolvit from Ace Hardware but they run out really quickly. On that note, don't ever just buy one of your favorite item. The likelihood is when you go back to get the next one, it will be out of stock. For example, there is one brand of microwave cleaner here (Dr. Something or other, can't remember the exact brand name but they also make a fridge cleaner) and I have been trying for about three months to get some. It's out of stock everywhere.
