It’s a sign of the modern times we live in. Take a walk down any high street in the UK today, and you will see shops catering for the people who have moved to Britain from all over the globe. But this phenomena is not restricted to our shores. If you are planning on moving to France, you can be sure that there will be shops there catering for the thousands of Britons who have decided that moving to France is for them. But before you get too excited about the possibility of being able to buy your favourite foods, its worth pointing out that in some rural areas of the country, you will be hard pushed to find English food.
Many large supermarkets in France stock a range of international products which should mean you will find old favourites like baked beans, Marmite, Typhoo tea bags and HP sauce on the UK shelf. There is one thing to bear in mind if you are moving to France and want to keep in touch with your British taste buds. While you may not mind shelling out fifteen Euros for a Christmas pudding once a year, the everyday items you may be missing are also very expensive. Even in the largest hypermarkets, a small jar of Marmite can cost €5 while a tin of baked beans will set you back €3. And if you want the right bread for your beans on toast, you can imagine the cost!
