Expensive Cereal

The other weekend I was in a Tesco Metro in London which had a "foreign" foods section. Part of the section consisted of a shelf of different American breakfast cereals.

Reese's Peanut Butter Puffs

£5.00 for Reese's Peanut Butter Puffs? Roughly $8.25 for a 13oz box of cereal? It has been awhile since I have bought cereal in the US, but my guess is that box would cost roughly $2.50 to $3. I mean I liked Reese's Puffs as a kid, but I am not going to pay 3x as much as I would in the US.

I also spotted the box top for education in the upper corner of the box. I wondering how a British school would react if you tried to give them a box top.
