    I'm new to this site, so please accept my apologies if I've duplicated a thread.
    Having been seriously overweight for some years, a bout of flu meant that I lost 2 stone, so I decided to continue, and have stocked up on Slim-Fast. However, I've noticed that they have far more variety in the USA, and wondered if there are plans to introduce them over here? I know that I can buy some on Ebay, but the postage from the States is quite high, and I'm not at all sure about buying food products on the site.
    Any comments would be most welcome, as I need all the help I can get!:p

    I didn't realize there was a variety difference between the two. Do you have family or a friend over here who could send it to you?

    My mom, who has friends in Italy, has sent food to. But she said they were dry packets of stuff. But she does know another friend who sends things like cans of cranberry sauce to his family in Italy. She said is has to go by Air Mail or it goes by boat and takes forever. They never claimed the food on the label.. just labeling it as a gift. But she said there are certain foods that cannot be sent depending on if it is a major export of the country it is going to. And of course agricultural concerns (like Honey.) She said there is a website that when you look under your zipcode?, it will tell you what cannot be sent into your area.

    Anyways... it might be pretty expensive if you are looking for the ready made shakes. But maybe not so much if you are looking for the snack and meal bars... or the powder. Are there not websites that carry the american version that will ship to the UK?

    I dunno.. hope this info is a little helpful.
