Finding Cadbury Flake candy bar in Boston area?

I'm looking for a local source of the Cadbury Flake candy bar so I can serve some 99's on St. Patrick's Day (those of you who have traveled in the UK and Ireland will know what a 99 is). Does anyone know where I can buy some Flakes in the Boston area, or by mail order?

Thanks

      Me too, specifically the ones in Brighton and Allston. I've also seen them at Cardullo's.

    2. maybe sugar heaven on newbury street?

      1. Faneuil Market on Fanueil Street in Brighton has them.

          I'm guessing that KiKi's Market right across the street does, too. They are an Irish market, and carry just about all things Cadbury.

            They definitely have them at Kiki's. While you are there you can pick up some Galtee bangers and black and white pudding.

                Just last week I had those bangers and the black pudding from Kiki's (in the frozen section in case you start wandering around the store). Both were delicious.

                  Some places freeze the rashers (Irish bacon) and I don't think they're supposed to do that.

                  Also, you should find the Time Out and Flake bars at alllocations.

                    Kiki's has Galtee bacon in the fridge case, but I believe it is imported frozen. If you want fresh, you need to get the "Olde Irish Butcher shoppe" local product (pretty good for bacon, although salted more to American tastes, doesn't compare for sausage) also available at Kiki's. Both Kiki's and Farmer's Bounty have boiling bacon too (at the latter its frozen).

          2. Cardullo's in Harvard Square had them last time I checked.

              Cardullo's is your best bet. They charge a little bit more, but they almost always have them (as well as most other British candy makes).

              1. re: eastiefoodie

                I was in Cardullo's over they weekend, they definitely have Flakes.

              2. Any grocery store in South Dorchester and South Boston has them
