Jammie Dodgers

Does anyone know where to buy Jammie Dodgers in the Boston area? I know that Wegmans in Northboro has them, but are they available anywhere in the Boston area or Woonsocket RI area? Thanks in advance for any help.

  1. We get them for my Doctor Who obsessed 7 year old at Roche Bros in West Roxbury

        I must know.....Doctor Who related?

        1. re: devilham

          No, just intrigued by all I have read online about them.

            Ah well, thought he might have a kindered spirit, he's being the 1st doctor today, walking around in a string tie and calling the wife and I 'my dear' after stating things, as opposed to the 11th, who wielded a Jammie Dodger against his arch enemy the Darleks. Kid slays me.

          devilham are they in the regular cookie aisle? I checked another Roche Bros and they did not have them. Thanks.

          1. re: Elevatorguy

            I'm betting they'd be in the International aisle, with Irish/British imports, if Roche Brothers has such a section.

              The Wellesley Roche Bros has its Irish/British foods in the international aisle. Like so many markets, there are cookies in many different places in that store so if you don't see them, ask. The staff at Roche Bros are very helpful.

                Thanks. I checked the international aisle but didn't see an Irish/English section at all. This was at the Millis store. The grocery manager was very helpful and said he would try to order them in for a future shipment.

                1. re: Elevatorguy

                  The West Roxbury Roche Bros. has a Brittish/Irish section, that's where my wife got them I believe.

                  1. re: devilham

                    The Fenway Star Mkt has a British/Irish area too. There's also a small store with English and Irish foods called the Lucky Shamrock in Quincy on Beale St between Adams St and Newport Ave close to Wollaston. Centre. The whole store is imported food from "across the pond." My BFF was visiting from CA and is from England. She was in heaven. There were so many things she hadn't seen for years, Her relatives(also from England) go there frequently and had told us about it. I must have passed it 100 times and never realized what it was.

                      I just stopped in the Lucky Shamrock grocer and they had Jammie Dodgers for $1.99. They also had several other cookies/biscuits made by the same company. Unfortunately, they didn't have the mini Weetabix that I'd only seen there.

                      1. re: catsmeow

                        They stopped making mini Weetabix years ago, unfortunately.

                        1. re: Jenny Ondioline

                          No, actually they seem to be making them again:

                          I'm dubious about the different flavors, but the Fruit and Nut version sounds good!

                          1. re: Allstonian

                            This is excellent to know! I always liked the Minis more than regular-size Weetabix, and was fairly bummed when they stopped making them.

                            1. re: Jenny Ondioline

                              Although the US distributor (Barbara's) still isn't carrying them, so we'd have to find them as imports. Will have to check out someplace like Kiki's in Brighton...

                          2. re: Jenny Ondioline

                            I looked them up online and it said that last Spring, the company was forced to stop making some of its cereals(the plain mini that I like was one of them) because of a bad wheat crop in England. I am going to email them to see of they intend to start again. The last box I got was was around last March.

            2. I've seen them recently in the English/Irish department of the Packards Corner Star, but the cookies and candy bars there tend to come and go.

              1. Kiki's market and Fanieul Street Market, both in Brighton, are good bets. They each carry a good range of English/Irish groceries.

                1. British Delights in Westford, MA has them. Great store!! You can also order online
