British Snacks (Jaffas, specifically) in chain or near New Haven, CT?

This is another very bizarre request, my last one being last year about mochi.
I was wondering if anyone knows of a chain of stores (like Stop & Shop, Big Y, etc etc -- shops that might be anywhere) or a specific store in the New Haven, CT area that sells Jaffa cakes.
...odd, I know.
I was in the Stop and Shop on Amity Road in New Haven today and they Jaffas in stock in the British/Irish section of the store.
Believe it or not the Aldi carries Jaffa-like cakes BUT they are Made In Germany and are quite good.They are currently out of stock as I checked today.
Is Penny Ha'Penny in Wilton too far for you? They are a british food shop.
The Darien Stop N Shop also has a British food section in the International food aisle. Otherwise, check out the Whole Foods in Milford - the one in Darien carries some British foodstuffs so the one in Milford may as well.
Your advice is nice, but OP asked for them in New Haven and Monday I spotted them in New Haven and posted them downthread.
I just don't get what's special about these Jaffa Cakes. I tried them and find little redeeming value for the empty calories. Kind of dry for my taste.
