Most of those things are not eaten in the States, and are almost as hard to find in the USA as in Argentina.
Yes, we have tea bags- we have chamomille, and ginger, and spice, and green tea, and raspberry zinger and echinacea.

But Oxo?
Bovril?
Marmite?

those sound like veterinary medicines for cattle, to me.

no christmas pudding, or jaffa cakes (isnt Jaffa in Israel?)
Baked beans here are punishment, usually at huge family buffets, the only thing left after all the good stuff has been eaten.


I think you are thinking about another continent, across a very big ocean.
You know, a country famous for bad cooking...

Actually, most of the above British products, meaning those that are commercially packaged and not prepared at home, are available in many large US cities, most often at supermarkets and specialty stores that carry imported food items. Over the years, I've seen the majority of these items in various stores in Boston, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Jaffa cakes, which in the US would be labeled as cookies, are terrific, and the Jaffa name refers to the type of orange that was used when this biscuit was originally produced.

Please be assured that from a country that produces spray cheese the UK no longer assumes the mantle of worst cooking
