OK, so my wife just got back from London, and in the process, she has done me a great disservice. Not intentionally, mind you. She thought kindly to bring me back something I’d enjoy that I couldn’t get in the States. So what did she find?
Mr. Kipling’s Lemon Slices. Oh. My. GOD!!! I got my first bite about 6pm the night she got back, and it was all I could do so make the remainder of the second box last into Day 2! These things are heavenly and sinful all in one bite. It’s like a Twinkie and a Zinger got together and had a baby, and then the baby was all like, “You people are too low-class for me” so it went and got higher education and used the power of science to better itself and only allowed itself to be served at the finest dining establishments. It is SO good! It has been a week, now, and I’m going through major withdrawal.
So I looked online today and found that there ARE ways to get it. The problem is that the sites I’ve run across seem to want to charge in the neighborhood of $40 for shipping, and that’s just ridiculous.
I’m wondering if there are UK Dopers out there who would be willing to find a cheaper way to get these lovely treats to me. And if there is something that I could provide in return from the U.S., I would be most willing to oblige!
Thanks in advance! Also, my wife says she needs Jaffa cakes.
