      Wow at those delivery charges I think I will forget it thanks, I looked at a small snack size box of crisps the 10p ones, total price was 7.61gbp which I thought was good and was ready to place the order, but wait for it 76.21gbp postage and packing a total of $132 I wouldn't mind if they were the proper packets but these are the mini snack bags 14g

      That's outrageous!! Think I'll give that a wide berth.

      I just did an experimental short list of a few goodies and they give you the choice between DHL who are hellish expensive and Royal Mail. DHL were 55 and RM were 8, that was up to 2kg. Give it another go Kate.

      It wouldnt give me the option to choose ROyal Mail when I went to the ordering screen, I filled everything out and then it only came back with DHL, I wonder if it is because it was a box of crisps and it's an awkward shape

      It may have been that it was calculated as being more than 2kg perhaps ? As soon as I went over 2kg I only had the choice of DHL.

      I have no idea how much a box of crisps weighs, but even so, can't afford it which is a shame, I will have to stick to the British Shop here.
