Where Can I Find McVities Digestive Biscuits in Marina del Rey Area (Los Angeles) ?

Panic is setting in because I can't find my beloved McVities Digestives in Marina Del Rey, LA!

I have a long voyage back to Australia via Mexico coming up and the thought of no McVities onboard for my cuppa teas on watch is depressing me!

None in Ralphs, so where next to try?

Re: McVities Digestive Biscuits in MDR,LA. Where?

Send them an e mail stating your plight. Ask them for a 10kg box in sponsorship for the Pacific crossing, you never know

I agree with Chief. Here's the link for them on Amazon. Special shipping and you'll be munching in a few days.

All the limies seem to congregate in Santa Monica, Jamel. Do a pub crawl there and you'll undoubtedly find someone who can tell you where to find them locally. Best bet would be Trader Joe's or Whole Foods Market among the bigger places, but I think there are a few small Brit-specialty shops in Santa Monica.

I buy mine at Cost Plus World Market. Not sure if there's one near MDR though. There's one a block from my house and I'll be on my boat in MDR this weekend. Tell me where you are and I'll bring you an emergency supply.

Some Safeways have them (depends on the branch, usually the ones in posher neighbourhoods - look for a tiny British section in the foreign foods aisle)

Alternatively, see if there is an Indian supermarket around. They usually have McVities cookies, Cadburys chocolate, and a good choice of tea.
