While they are challenging it, Cadburys can't be sold in the US and sure you can get the other stuff online at ridiculous prices. Plus delivery.

I don't miss anything really, I mean I don't sit in Spain thinking about foods, places or people in the UK. I do like a fresh cream cake, real ale and a fish and chips tea when I go back though

Fish & Chips. I scored last time in Cessnock NSW - that was nearly 10 years ago.
Must open a F&C food truck here. Sure it'll sell well

A good friend of mine always claimed to have a particularly strong craving for Baked Beans when he spent an extended period outside of the UK- he wasn't even a huge fan of them!

I miss just going to the supermarkets (far better than the ones in Netherlands, not as crowded, and politeness abounds!), Pret a manger, and Costa! I always have a flat white from Costa when I visit.

good and cheap Indian food, and online grocery shopping with delivery.

conversely, here i seem to struggle to find consistently good greek food--the nice proper stuff, not just the kebabs.

I miss the cycling!

I was with two cycling clubs when I lived in Brum, and there was a ride most everyday. We rode all over Staffordshire, Warwickshire, Shropshire and beyond. Stopped at old, quaint, and lovely pubs for lunch. Then back on our bikes riding on mostly single track lanes through some of the loveliest countryside on the planet. Even this time of year and winter, it was always a good time with the nicest folks.

I do miss the curries and Baltis - found some good ones in France but just not quite the same. And, yes, fish & chips!
