Tesco (or some of the bigger stores) are now selling a wide range of American prodcuts, including Lucky Charms (normal and chocolate, 453g) Jolly Rancher drinks, Flipz pretzels, peanut chocolate, peanut spread, peanut and jelly spread, root beer, Wonka stuff and quite a few other things.

I believe a lot of people have been waiting for Lucky Charms to hit the supermarkets. Maybe this is the start and Asda will follow, especially as Asda are owned by Walmart. They did have an end date of the 23/10/12, so not sure what the future price will be. Also I'm guessing this will be just in the bigger Tesco stores around the country. I have no idea when they started selling these things (and which stores have them) and if they will continue to sell them.

Is that Stockton on tees?

£5.00 for a box of cereal - someone is having a laugh. I realise that they sell this £7.00 elsewhere but we all know that this costs less than $3 (£2) in the States and someone is making a fast buck over here.

As an American I would love to try these again. Thanks

That would be our government - import duty, VAT etc etc etc

Of course they are making a profit, that's what businesses do. They are imported by Empire Foodbrokers Ltd. So if they sell for £2 in America, Empire Foodbrokers have to make a profit, as do Tesco. £5 is not a bad price considering. We all know it's expensive for a cereal, but what you going to do. You won't be able to buy these for £2 over here, so if you want them, you have to pay the price.

Great price! Someone tell me where you can get this size box cheaper in the UK? You can't!

Are they the proper US Lucky Charms or a crappy UK version?

Real, everything I looked at was all the real American products.

Gonna have a trip out after work. Hoping they have country gravy as well.

Just because selfridges sells them for £7+, doesnt make them a bargain at £5.
I remember when they WERE sold in the UK, and they were almost permanently on offer, because lets face it, they are grot in a bowl. Simple as.

duty is going to be about 5%. VAT is charged on all sweets is it not? (sorry you said cereal? This is not a cereal)
I'll tell you the real reason they're £5. Supply and demand. Or lack of.

Anyone know if they have any of this in Stockport one ?

Or import costs and profit for the importer and supplier (Tesco)

This is how much things cost when you import them.

How come shops can import and sell sugary crap like this, but the same crap can't be produced then sold in this country?

Of course it's a bargain to anyone that was paying £7,8,9 for them. Everyone is different, but this is the cheapest (as far as I'm aware) you can get them in the UK.

I'm with you these are hot at £5 a box unless somebody knows where we can buy them cheaper in the uk???

Most of the things in a UK supermarket are imported! Or do you think we grow coconuts, bananas etc down in swindon.
Charging that much for a supermarket stocked box of cereal and using import as an excuse is a joke.
Or should we all start paying ten quid for a can of coconut milk because it came over from thailand.
