Is there any reason why products from the U.S are so much more expensive in the U.K? I am British and travel to London regularly. On one of my visits I bought a Krispy Kreme doughnut for 1 pound 10 pence. For a single doughnut. I presume they don't cost that much in the States. The same accusation can be levelled at Apple, Ralph Lauren, Gap etc. Any suggestions?
