Hmmm on the subject of choc.... UK cadburys is way too sweet, so are Mars bars etc. Your Coke tastes like diet coke and Thornton's comes close but not quite to Haighs. Haighs go out and buy their cocoa beans at source each year to get the blend they want. Just smell that choc smell as you walk into their factory shop and you will know what I mean.
For those of you who wish to get their tastebuds ready for the Aussie onslaught there is a site in the Uk where you can purchase Jaffas, timtams, cherry ripes, vegemite (somerfields had Vegemite on their shelves when I was there in Jan) and other great Aussie specialities. I think it is called aussieshop.co.uk or something google and you will find. I have got the rellies hooked on jaffas so it's cheaper to order them from this site than for me to spend out posting them.
Oh and Pete you must actually do the shopping more cos just about any supermarket sells Branston and you also might like to try Rosella's fruity pickle, which is great on cheese on toast.
