American cereal - where can I buy those little packs?

My DS aged 5 is a little obsessed with Americana at the moment, after a recent hol there. I like to put a little box of cereal (he was most excited about the cereal there) into his stocking, but where can I buy it without it costing the earth?

If anyone has seen some, please let me know (any other ideas gratefully received)

Thank you!

There's an American based sweet shop Sweets From Heaven in big shopping centres.

IIRC they have Fruit Loops and Lucky Charms
Or best bet, online. The P&P shouldn't be too much, cereals are so light.

You don't happen to be in the south-west, do you? I know of two places in Bristol and one in Bath that sell some of the big names in highly-processed, artificially coloured American foods - lucky charm cereals, Twinkies etc (I couldn't swear they have mini-boxes, but I think I've seen some). They are all actually sweet shops (pick'n'mix sort of places) with a sideline in imported foods. It could be a nationwide trend, so worth checking any sweet shops near you?

Lucky Charms at Harvey Nichols. They have other American foods too.

Ah - x-posted - sounds very similar, though the ones in Bristol aren't called Sweets from Heaven. I think one is Fizzy Lips, and the other is something like Lone Star.

I go to America a lot, I could buy a multipack of cereal whilst I am there and post it to you if you would like? smile

Cybercandy do them and I think Amazon. You can get little pots of lucky charms all over now.

Thank you all very much. I'm in the NW and have been told about an American sweetie shop nearby, which apparently sells cereal pots.

Trolleydolly - that's very kind of you but it looks like I'm sorted!

Ocado sells Lucky Charms.
