    im not sure if you can use anything else but i know your friend could pick you up some Vecon in holland and barratt as they have it in :)
    They do frylight in most of the big supermarkets so he/she should be able to pick that up fairly easily

    Ahh thank you so very much....

    I will try marmite as I have seen that in one shop.. very expensive over here but will give that a go.. not sure in a curry though hahaha

    I am not sure about buillion as I do have that here but think that is also full of lots of additives... must admit I don't use oxo and all that as is full of e numbers high in salt etc and would rather use the proper flavours... so will give marmite.. I won't bovril as that is beef based and I don't eat beef!! There is always one isnt there haha!!

    OK anyone get any other really tasty things they can suggest I get my friend to bring over lol

    get stack loads of pasta and sauce, even though im not really a packet food person and love to cook from fresh i keep it in the cupboards for those days when i just cant be bothered cooking if you look through the syns thread there will be the syns for the most popular ones, you can also jazz em up with adding veggies and stuff so its a bit healthier a handy standby that lasts for ages and costs hardly anything if you dont end up using it :)

    Hi Never tried veggimite ermm is that how you spell it... or if they would have it over here...also sadly the same for the pasta sauce packets... but it isn't the case of not wanting to cook it is finding the ingredients.... not the same as shopping in the uk lol

    thanks though
