Unboxing Essential British Food Items

Over the holidays, my good friend Tom and his other half, Joanna, very kindly sent me a package containing lots of essential British food items (plus a handy helping of non-British goods). Unfortunately, I was out of town for 11 days and only just now discovered the package waiting in my mailbox (not a euphemism).
