Any British(or European) Markets in Los Angeles?

I only lived in England for a short time (a year), but developed an obession for Salt n Vinegar Snack a Jacks and Müller Yogurt.

Does anyone know of any British market (or European Market) where I may be able to find these??

Ive tried finding alternatives, searching places likes Fresh and Easy, local super markets, world market, health food stores, upscale supermarkets. The closest ive found to snack a jacks are those Popped Chips. In the yogurt department, i havent found anything close to Müller or real European yogurt.

    1. Several British markets on Santa Monica Boulevard in Santa Monica.

      1. [FYI, Fresh & Easy is NOT a "British market"; it's just a market chain with British ownership. I wouldn't expect the Wal-Marts and Costcos in UK/Europe to be stocked with lots of American goods -- they cater to local markets and demands, as does Fresh & Easy.] (scroll down to Wholesalers) (scroll down to Markets & Shops)

          F&E have started carrying some British products. I saw European yoghurt in my local one (Main & Chapman, in the City of Orange) but I disremember whether it was Mueller brand. It might have been Emmi.

            Fresh & Easy have started stocking some British product, but I'm totally disgusted with the pickled onions and imitation Branston pickle they carry. Whoever sold those lines to them really sold them some bad product. I've also had a few issues with dating on the canned product at F&E, past the best by dates.

              Perhaps due to the difference between British and American date formats?

              Also, the "imitations" may be relabeled Tesco own-brand products, which are pretty dreary.

        2. Beachwood Market has a British shelf just as you walk in. They carry Twiglets, HP Brown sauce, spotted dick, English style baked beans and other items I also found in London. I don't think they have the yogurt you're referring to, as the shelf is not refrigerated. And I also don't remember the Snack a Jacks. But the other items are reminiscent.
