Try your embassy. I buy cloves at Indonesia's. There's a thought; does the UK embassy sell Marmite, or the Aussie Embassy sell Vegemite? That would make a lot of fussy eaters very happy.

Somebody with enough $$$ has to open an expat store! A Russian version along the lines of Trader Joe's. Loved that place in California. They had items from all over the world (I was shocked -- in a pleasant way -- when I found a mushroom salad from Lithuania there one time).

Just how many expats are willing to pay extra to get certain things right here in Moscow instead of flying to London or NY! (Or writing endless threads about how much they suffer without their favourite food :p )

a few years ago, a friend of mine tried to send me a couple of cartons from the US of my favourite cigs (American Spirits, and I think it was 3 cartons). DHL phoned and said that it was above the limit allowed and that the duty on the cigs would have been twice that of shipping and the price in Manhattan (last time I was there, $8.50 / pack!). So, they sent them back to my friend...

Checking with embassies is a great idea...

Trader Joe's....Man!!! you're killing me!!!

I have been buying State Express 555's in Moscow for the last 9 years and find them freely available in 1 out of 2 kiosks - except in the centre. They cost 38 r in my local rynok and 40 to 45 r in kiosks near centre e.g. immediately outside Tsvetnoi Bulvar metro.
