i miss cool whip

but please note, waitrose sells skinny cow's (a brand of froyo by Silloette) very popular with us weight watchers.

they don't have the froyo sandwiches but the have the frozen pops.  DH and i love to nosh on them at night for 90 calories.  Think giant fudsicle on crack.  So good.

We went once when we decided to use some John Lewis vouchers there (I know, we bought food!  Did that with the M&S ones too!!!)

I think we will be going this weekend now ;D

Have you tried Tesco? I've seen a lot of variety of Paul Newmans there.

I'm new to this site, but have been living in the UK for about a year and a half and am tired of having my American friends spend a fortune in shipping me care packages of tuna! What is up with British tuna??? I'd kill for a steady supply of Starkist fancy white chunk albacore, but all I can find is grey catfood-like stuff. I'm not in London (am in the depths of SW Wales), so unless London shops do mail-order, that isn't much use to me. Has anyone else had trouble finding good tuna? Help!  :-[

Just tinned tuna. I find the fresh fish over here way better than in the US -- and more easy to get as well! But as for tinned tuna, I'm at a dead loss. We only have a Tesco and a Somerfield near me, and no matter how many times I gaze hopefully at the tinned fish shelves, I have yet to find any good water-packed white chunk fancy albacore tuna. On my various travels to visit other people, I've also checked Safeway without any joy. :-(

Sainsbury's have tinned albacore tuna, it is their own "Taste the Difference" brand. I haven't tried it so can't say if it's any good or not.
