Check Walmart they should have your delicate and delicious Branston pickle or some scrumptious pies. Check the bakery section for the pies. I'm not sure if I've ever had Branston pickles before, but if anybody has them Walmart will.

There is a store (it is a chain store, 8 locations within Guangzhou) in your city that sells only foreign food.  Not cheap, but it will be up to you to decide.  Think of a store maybe 10 mts x 40 mts, with maybe 8 to 10 aisle shelves and shelves also along the walls, all full of foods from many foreign countries.  Not one thing "native" there. 

The name of the place is CORNER"S DELY, and the flag ship store is at Citic Plaza basement.  The entrance is down a ramp or stairway at 10, Unit SC-01  Back Street BM, Citic Plaza 233, Tian He bei Lu in Guangzhou.  Their phone/fax number is 020-38771400.

To help you locate the place, they are maybe 1/2 block away from Westin Hotel, maybe around 100 meters (or a little more) from the US Consulate, and about 250 meters from the East Train Station.

One thing I like is that if they do not have it, sometimes they will try hard to get it for you for next visit.  From bakery, canned goods, vegetables, cut meat, liquor, toilet needs, and many more.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
