Real Lyons Coffee From Britain

Coffee Aroma
When I was a young schoolboy in London, I remember waiting for the big, red, #12 double decker bus to take me to school. Just down the road from the bus stop was a Lyons coffee house and every morning the delicious aroma of roasting coffee would waft down the street towards me.

That was in the good old days when coffee shops would roast their own coffee on the premises. The aroma did the selling. Why advertise? Just roast some beans and watch the crowds pack in to the shop.

The Lyons Legend
The legendary Lyons brand name goes all the way back to 1887 and all but disappeared by 1978 when it was acquired by a big brewery. Lyons brand coffee is now produced by United Coffee Company of Dartford in Kent, England.

Try it and Compare
Blighty's brought in a special shipment of Lyons British coffee this week. Why not try a pack and compare the flavour and aroma to your usual brand? A 150g vacuum sealed pack is just $3.99 while stocks last.

Quality Street - How to Identify the Real Thing

But What's Inside?
Quality Street candies are made all over the world. The name is the same but the contents of the tin are made to local standards.

You're Gonna Flip
Tins of Quality Street appear in the big box stores around Christmas every year at very tempting prices, but are they the real thing? Flip the tin over and look at the information printed on the bottom.

75 Years and Counting
What does it say? Some will say "imported" - but from where? The real thing is made in Halifax, Yorkshire, England - and has been since 1936.

Save Over Eight Bucks!
Want to take a chance on imitations made elsewhere? You may even save a buck or two. Or you can come to Blighty's and pick up the genuine item for just $19.95 for a big 820g tin. The same item sells for $27.99 elsewhere.

Chop Chop
But hurry. Our stock was special ordered for Christmas and we cannot re-stock. When they are all gone you will still be able to buy the imitation Quality Street made in goodness-knows-where, but you'll have to wait 'til next Chrimbo for the real British stuff.
