Half and half can usually be substituted with "Light Cream", "Coffee Cream", or "Table Cream". When I lived in Massachusetts I usually bought light cream for my coffee and it seemed like about the same thing as half and half.

It's a coffee cream of 1/2 cream and 1/2 milk. It's about 10% butterfat/milkfat, so not as thick as cereal cream which is about 18% I think.
