It's probably the most common jelly or jam purchased in the US.  You can probably find it in 90% of US homes.  We make PB&J with it.  There's also a cocktail meatball sauce made with it lol.  I love grape jelly and as a kid ate just jelly sandwiches sometimes.

 

I like Concord Grape Jam

Hello,

 

How many do you expect? I've just been on the five major supermarkets here in the UK and the number of 'Jams' stocked ranges from 76 to 175 - including the likes of peanut butter and honey.

 

Regards,

 

Cublet

 

And not one grape?

How sad. 

 

BTW, on what planet are honey and peanut butter considered jams 🤔

Hello,

 

When  lived in Australia, I set out to destroy the economy by buying either UK produce or local/NZ  equivalents eg Marmite instead of Vegemite.

 

I'm not into orange marmalade - lemon & lime or better still strawberry jam (with or without either Champagne or Scotch Whisky) on warm flaky croissants.

 

Regards,

 

Cublet

 

Vegemite and marmite, now that's nasty. 

My gag reflex can't get past the smell

 

This thread used to be fun until it became fill in the blank and an overview on British food.

Nice to have a bit of Britain in the thread seeing as quite a bit of it is about things so unfamiliar to Brits that they might as well be in Chinese!😆

They are plumped together as things you spread on bread.

Hello,

 

Yes, and I have another example that was not resolved until today.

 

Quite a few pages ago a number of funny pictures' captions contained the word 'Depends'. Like with 'cow tipping' I was at a loss. Today I was walking around my Costco and saw some for sale and now I understand.

I'm starting to get pretty good at British humor

Mayo, mustard, ketchup, relish, tartar sauce......

 

Peanut butter is in same section as Jams and Jelly in US, not sure about honey.

 

Maybe I should count the variety.

FWIW, we have a small british section in Publix

Nice when I have a hankering for clotted cream

Peanut butter and Marmite would usually be adjacent to jams in a U.K. supermarket presumably because they can all be spread on bread or toast. We did try the peanut butter offered at breakfast in the Diamond lounge and it was incredibly sweet to our taste, U.K. peanut butter is definitely savoury and often I add salt. 
You can now get marmite peanut peanut butter, might be an acquired taste but I like it, we can also get marmite hummus!

Not so much jokes that tend to be the problem,American sport & American tv are things that can be very much out of my comfort zone!

Mine, too, and I am American!

To add to the food discussion, I'm surprised no one has mentioned Promite, which I preferred to Vegemite, and the fact that peanut butter, in Australia, is called peanut paste.
