The only British sweets that I really miss (and that I occasionally pay a fortune for here in Canada, or have my mother bring over) are Rowntree's Fruit Gums, and to a lesser degree their Fruit Pastilles. There is really nothing else quite so satisfyingly hard-chewy and real-fruity going. I've long agonised over why they don't make or sell them here: pretty much every other Rowntree/Nestle, Cadbury, Mars etc product is also made and sold in some form in Canada, but not Fruit Gums.

I bought this album by mistake, but it was an extremely lucky mistake, as it is indeed a great, and unique, selection of songs.
I picked it up for 10 bucks from a used CD shop in Calgary (Hot Wax) thinking it was an album by the Irish band The Divine Comedy. It's a CD I've held on to after having sold the rest of my collection 10 years ago.
