Yes, of course Geoffrey's has golden syrup, and probably Vegemite too.  Might always be a good idea to give them a call to make sure they have it in stock before making the trip, though.

Yes. I might do a few myself.  Have a great 'sure to rise' recipe.  Guess I'll be off to Monaco to get the golden syrup.  Surely Geoffery must have it in Antibes???
