Why are Kellogs Special K so expensive here ..my fav by far , im assuming they are not produced here and are actually imported therefore incurring the duties etc .

Love porridge but as with pasta it bungs me up and makes my eyes water ...my top 6

Special K with banana (but make do with corn flakes)
Toasted tea cake (buy do at home)
Poached eggs on toast (T bar)
Eggs Benedict (Gallery GH)
FULL ENGLISH fry up ,, but struggle to find any where in Udon that can do a proper one .
Pancakes with raspberry vinegar , lemon juice (or maple syrup if Scunny win) Thai places near NPP

Great to see tam back posting,especially on a strong important subject as british /english breakfast cereal,thought he might be more interested in his own staple diet,the porridge gobbling homo,lol
That's the gay American derivative.

Real Jockinese were raised on this.

YES believe me i know all about customs import taxes and the multitude of tariffs with in the whole system .. my point was if Kelloggs can produce corn flakes here why not special K as it is an off shoot variation of the traditional corn flake .There is a huge difference in price between the two and import tax is the main issue...

I also like wheatabix, shredded wheat (Arther Scargills as they were known in Scunny) , again quite a few variations depending on where its produced.

Thai brekkie today with my son on Adunyadhet rd , 3 very good dishes 3 drinks and free pork soup rib bones for Jack mi Jack Russell..180 bt

I've been hunting for Hidden Valley Ranch salad dressing ever since I got here. Found some online here from BKK. It was great and filling the void, but then the company stopped stocking it. I've hunted around, but haven't located any. Maybe I'm hitting places at the wrong time.

Any help appreciated.

It is the pick of the local bunch.
I'll be down in Bangkok & Pattaya this weekend and can see if it's available. If so, how many do you need?

Appreciate the offer, tamada. If you see it, just point me to it.

I'm going down to Burapa to retrieve the #1 daughter from her apartment at the university in the next few days, and I'll load up on the way home.
