YE-HA!
If it’s a taste of America you’re after then American Imports Ltd could be just the ticket.
Found in Coventry Market this little stall is packed with US treats.
Hershey’s chocolate, Twinkies cakes, marshmallow spread, pumpkin pie filling, corn bread, eggnog, Mountain Dew … you name it they’ve got it.
Owners Michelle Conway, 36, and Lisa Hollins, 37 set up shop in Nuneaton last year but moved so they could open six days a week at the city market.
Lisa said: “We met at the school where our kids go. We both wanted to get into business began with just two products and they just happened to be American, microwave snacks and Jane’s mixed up seasoning.
“But then people kept on asking if we could get other American stuff and it just grew from there.
“I think the appeal is that nobody has a bad holiday in America and they like to eat what they did out there.”
She added: “The biggest sellers are Mountain Dew drink, Lucky Charms cereal and Twinkies. My favourite’s the boxed macaroni cheese. It just seems to taste more real than the tinned stuff.”
