Well if Tom Baker was your Doctor Who, then you may understand why this is blog worthy.
I went into HT for one thing. I'm getting better at walking into stores for just one thing and only walking out with 3, as opposed to a dozen things. Anyway, I like HT's fish counter, so I went there for some scallops and decided to check out the rest of the store, as most of the time I don't get past the seafood counter. When walking down the foreign foods aisle, there they were. Jelly Babies. They weren't the usual brand I try to get when I do visit the UK, but there they were. At about $6 a box, they were way cheaper than flying over or mail ordering them.
For certain things the prices seem to be fine. Special things, yes, those are a bit more pricey. But being surprised with a candy you've been obsessed with since a teen, priceless.

I remember Tom Baker and Jelly Babies.

FYI, there is a British tobacco store in Arlington just off the Clarendon metrorail station that probably sells Jelly Babies. I know they have Kinder Surprise chocolate eggs and other oddities too.

The British store in Clarendon is closed. I was over there last week and noticed.
