Anyone have access to US PX store in UK ?

Postby Aidan » 13 Sep 2018, 12:32

One of my customers brought me a bag of Kona coffee when he visited, he is US military and he got it from the PX on base - now he's back in Hawaii, but I'd really like another bag of the good stuff, the Kona Vanilla and Macademia nut coffee but I can't find a UK stockist, and shipping it from the states via Ebay is silly expensive

PM me if you can help thanks for looking

Try one of the USAF bases, they sell a lot of funny stuff in their shops.

That's where the PX's are usually - they are tax free shops for anything Yank for sale to their forces personnel only. Spent numerous hours observing them in my former life for illicit sales to UK citizens. :D

... and if you find a source can you see if they can also get Chef Paul Prudhoms Cajun spices.

As far as I am concerned that's an equivalent to Bisto for British ex pats. Couldn't find it in the Supermarkets last time I was in the US so I have run out :(

'Hot link' sausages are very nice from the US bases as well, never seen them anywhere else
