And also, cream or half & half.  Coffee needs one of those, not MILK.  That's for tea.

in the link they totally have a Mexican section, and the pic is of chipotles in adobo (which I would eat the heck out of, as an ex-pat)

Speaking of which... how is Londre fixed for tortillas?

That site (other than the Mexican stuff) is the worst of the stuff you can buy in the US. When I've been in the UK I haven't been you know what I need, some really shiatty US snacks, because they have awesome really shiatty snacks. There's a reason why the UK is right behind us in obesity. If I was there for a really long time, I think I'd miss good latin american/mexican food. You get good spicy Indian food though.

I never really understand why there's the US, and UK are fat put down thing. Yup...we're fat.  Because we have convenience  food and money..but have to cube work so have to get the fast food....and even a fat guy can get laid if they have MONEY.

But in the US...being skinny is trendy. You rarely see someone Waddle into a Dolce and Gabbana store on Rodeo Drive. And in France, the UK there have always been fat people (they just didn't talk about them much, like the Royal family Cousin Farken)
Perhaps you'd like one more THIN MINT....
