My Tesco is also lacking an American section.  Mine also keeps discontinuing items that I use most.  Practically every week, another staple has been replaced with a Tesco own brand product.  In most cases, I find the replacement pretty subpar, and my husband adds that item to the list of things that he picks up from Waitrose when he's in Salisbury.
The Salisbury Tesco Extra has a smallish American section.

Was it %100 maple syrup?  I can't see how that could be bad.

Once we bought a bottle of fake maple syrup that was padded out with some extra water and some kind of sweetener.  It was pretty gross, even grosser if you do a taste test and actually try a spoon of the fake immediately after a spoonful of real maple syrup.

Costco has giant bottles of Kirkland brand and I think you can get it from Amazon.

Oh boy... my American friends gave them a good razzing on Facebook and this group of Scottish restraunters do not have a sense of humour, at all!

People got private messages from them and were straight up banned.

My graphic designer friend is opening a new Scottish restaurant in Colorado.

That's hilarious. I get the porridge joke, but what is that on the right?  Fish and chips with strawberries?

Cranachan (with strawberries instead of raspberries?) inside a sausage roll?

That's some serious Scottishness going on.  You both have gone native!

SUCCESS - the small child actually ate a small amount of her dinner and I wasn’t plagued by how incredibly nutrient-void it was.
Whole wheat pasta with one of those premade but ‘fresh’ tomato and mascarpone pasta sauce tubs, crispy bacon, leftover roast chicken, quick-roast cherry tomatoes (in the bacon fat, yum) and baby spinach.

We redid our kitchen which has been a real life changing joy (god bless you, slimline dishwasher) but still don’t have a table. 6 more days on eating on our knees.

Woohoo!!!

My kid decided last week that she likes ketchup.  Took nearly 4 years.  Made me think she wasn't really American.  But she is!

Very envious of your new kitchen!  Post pictures!

Last night, my Dear Mr. Ross and I whipped up some delicious lamb enchiladas, with a side of Smoky Bacon "Heinz Beanz". While I felt a wee bit guilty about the amount of carbs ingested via the three flour tortillas used, I daresay the indulgence was worth it. :)
