American Food Store in London
Importing your favourite American Groceries
From Newspapers to American Food Store
After 38 years as a family Newsagents and Post Office in London's Notting Hill, the bean counters at the Treasury decided to close us down in June 2008.
Stuck on what to do next, we decided to indulge our love of American Foods. A trip to New York had fostered a taste for the good things: Lucky Charms, A&W Root Beer and those yummy Twizzlers and Nerds. These items are available in the UK but boy are they expensive!
We decided to offer a wider range of American products and, most importantly, to work with sensible margins (we are after all trained as newsagents not purveyors of overpriced American groceries!)
Several years down the line, and with the support of our loyal customers, our product range has increased to over 1000 items, and include everything you really miss from the States; candy, sodas, Betty Crocker and Duncan Hines cake mixes, etc. We also discovered that American branded products that are available in major stores here are not the REAL THING. Betty Crocker and Mountain Dew are the obvious examples. Cheerios, the UK version, is packed with sugar, whilst the American version is sugar free. We also have a wide range of gluten free cereals.
So for a taste of REAL American Foods, candy, and of course American sodas, check out our store.
