English sweets in SE Michigan?
I was wondering if anyone knows of a shop that sells British sweets? I know Meijers carries a few, but I'm looking for a wider variety such as Whispas, Buttons, Munchies, etc.
I used to get my fix at World Market in Auburn Hills but they closed down a while ago. I work in Detroit and live in Flint, so I'd be willing to travel anywhere inbetween Saginaw, Lansing and Windsor.
Thanks in advance for any help.
World Market still has stores in Ann Arbor and Lansing, as well as the west side of the state; they just closed down their metro Detroit stores.
You might also check Hiller's markets; I think they have a bigger assortment of British items than most stores. Try one of their larger stores, i.e., any except downtown Berkley or downtown Northville.
My other suggestion is Ackroyd's Scottish bakery, 5 mile/Beech Daly in Redford.
The Hiller's in Ann Arbor has a whole rack of British candies. It's over by the registers on the other side of the walk in beer cooler.
I would agree with gooddog about Ackroyd's. They have a selection of imported British products...candies, teas, HP Sauce, Batchelor's peas, etc. Plus, they have a fine selection of baked goods. Not sure if you are just looking for sweets or more. They just started a delivery service...probably won't go to Flint but would deliver to your work.
Third Hillers, especially the one on Union Lake Road in Commerce...it's a nice store, makes me want to cry when I think of our tiny Hiller's in Berkley! Allthough the one in Berkley does have a few shelves of British food including digestives.
Also Holiday as others mention has a fair amount of British stuff.
And the Buschs in Rochester Hills has a British section as well; presumably other Busch's do too.
