Dumpling mix ~ Suet ~ Gravy Granules...................
Every time I go home or anyone I know go home I always get them to bring these back.

Why own brand foods you would have to buy them at supermarket prices plus shipping, also everything is being imported by cyprus discount and plenty of other shops.

Dumpling mix, suet, both the real thing and veggy version and gravy granuals are available at Ophenidies in NIcosia and probably in their other branches. They are just not where you would think to look. For suet look and dumpling mix look at the aisle that has flour etc on.

You are about 4 years too late!

There are now 4 shops in the Paphos area doing this, plus 1 freezer shop.

Plan "B" methinks!

And plenty in limassol , all things mentioned allready here top brands and not so top brands.
No supermarket own brands maybe though

you can get virtually everything you want here without searching too hard..... there are various importers of goods from the UK and they have done their research. If you want something really obscure, then maybe not, but nobody is going to build a business around something obscure.... as a previous post said... too late....!! You can even get square sausage, haggis and scotch pies..... not much more needed to survive if you can get them.....

I actually think there is room for other shops if you do your research properly. Where are the various shops in Limassol, I use Smart, Shop and Save and the Discount Store and find that they are selling much the same stuff as each other nothing different. The Discount Store sells near enough the same as UK's in Paphos but not as much stuff.

Thank you

Hi there, cyprus discount store has two shops in limassol one on franklin roosvelt - carry on along the beach road towards the port and it is almost opposite the karmi fruit market on the right. another much larger one is on Miltonis - keep driving along Franklin Roosvelt and turn right opposite the turn to ladies mile beach. the road wiggles round and then you turn left onto miltonis, you will see shop on the left. this is a new site and they have loads of bargins and english brands nice and cheap, electricals too

Just been to new cyprus discount stores, lots more stuff there than in flee market and small shop, well worth a visit some stuff even cheaper than uk. plus nice pleasant people.
