I thought London was part of the free world

They don't have jelly here.

Jam, sure.

Marmelade, naturally.

But jelly, nope.

They keep laughing at me at all the grocery stores when I ask for grape jelly.

No Smucker's grape jelly, no Bama grape jelly, no Welch's grape jelly.

I can understand not having the usual 4,954 makes and models of peanut butter, let alone traditional American cereals.

But London *is* supposed to be part of the free world.

They sell Marmite, a byproduct of yeast, not even actually yeast, just a waste residue of it.

But no jelly.

And grits? Fuhhgettaboutit.
