£3.69 for a sandwich? Be cheaper to have your stomach removed.

Shoot, places like Starbucks have sandwiches more pricey than that!

I'd buy his sandwiches.

I've never been in a Starbucks in my life. I'd consider £4 a bit extreme for a sarnee but then I'm poor. Pretty but poor.

Darling BeatrixFan, you have to pay more than that if you are unfortunate enough to have a hunger attack at any UK airport and trust me they are not worth the wrapper they are wrapped in!

I just wonder what goes into one of these sandwiches to make it four quid. I mean, as organic as it might be, a McDonalds is only £3.99. Unless you go large in which case you're just a lard ball.

I have never tried a MacDonalds, normal or large. Having tried some of the other Duchy originals, which I found to be delicious, I am sure the sandwiches will be worth every penny or four.

BeatrixFan if you like McDonald's we have another chain called Burger King. Boy those hamburgers and fries I just love but the calories oh my goodness!!!.

I hope in a few years to visit Great Britian. I really would love to try Prince Charles' foods. I did hear he might bring his food to California and maybe there I will get a chance to taste it.

We have Burger King here. I like Burger King burgers and McDonalds fries so I never get exactly what I want. Unless I go to KFC. Or Wendys - but they closed the local Wendys. And I cried.

You can order Duchy stuff online you know?

The majority of DO products are not shipped across that little body of water called the Atlantic Ocean. Only products available online are the biscuits at Amazon.com. In January 2007 it was announced that www.food-brands.com would be the importer for all DO products. At this time their website cannot be found.

I'll just have to renew my passport (6 month wait) and take a trip over to the UK. Too bad I only have 1 week vacation per year.

Yeah, I am sure that Duchy ships out all over Europe, but not sure about the US. They will ship to the US too? I always wanted to try especially the Duchy biscuits. There are so many rave reviews about them.

US prices are high now because the dollar value is low. I bet the Duchy sandwich would convert to around $5-6.

This is not the time to travel to the UK. Exchange rates are 1 pound = $2.00, therefore the sandwiches would be $.00 - $7.50. Now I'm getting hungry. Must forage through the icebox for something other than a sandwich.

P.S. The biscuits are available at amazon.com.

Here are some links about Duchy Originals:

You can buy them direct from the official site if you are in the UK, in Denmark, in Germany, Italy, Japan, or France

If you in US or other parts of the world, go to these Amazon links:

The Cider is to die for, mixed with a drop of Whisky liqueur! (hic.....) The soups are also delicious, although I have not tried the Celeriac, Bacon & Leek.

All the biscuits are weight gainingly superb and I defy anyone to eat only 1 or 2!

I hope a store near me sells the shortbread biscuits. They are REALLY GOOD!

They are, but they were expensive even before the exchange rate tanked. I dread to think what they'll cost now.

Some Duchy Originals products are available at my local independent supermaket. I think it's mostly jams and chutneys and such.. I haven't inspected closely, but the DO products are in that area.
