#1

sounded quite nice. butter with flakes of rock salt. from the Deluxe range, too.

fucking HORRIBLE. way, way too salty.

any recent shopping mistakes you’d like to talk about?


#2

I bought some of that French vanilla coffee in a jar because I’d hoped it would taste like the coffee I got on holidays once. It’s not, it’s a bit rank.


#3

Got some Rowntrees Randoms to fill up my sweet jar the other day, don’t know what I was thinking, they’re average at best and I knew that when I picked them up. Daft decision, only got myself to blame.


#4

it was on offer so at least I didn’t waste as much as I might have


#5

Butter with flakes of rock salt? Fuck were you thinking, Silks?

(The regular Aldi butter is the same as everything in Aldi: perfectly fine and about 20% cheaper than Sainos)

How far back are we allowed to go within the remit of recent? The thing is, you see, I’ve got a story about how I bought some Jacobs Salt and Pepper Bakes, instead of buying the pantry-standard Tesco Salt and Pepper Crackers, assuming that the branded former would be up to scratch, only to find out that they were in fact not up to scratch. The thing is I don’t want to tell the tale if it wasn’t recent enough, hence I’m seeking clarification.

gonna have to slap down a 2008 cut-off bud.

oh good, then we’re very much in luck, as this was merely a few months back. here goes…

bought a packet of those hippeas yesterday in boots, smoky barbecue flavour. tasted of not much. imagine powdery wotsits made out of chickpeas and rice flour and you’re nearly there.


#10

i was thinking that butter with flakes of rock salt sounded quite nice, man


#11

Might be alright if you’re cooking a flatbread or something. But I can’t imagine it on toast! Too uneven.


#12

omg http://hippeas.com/


#13

Bought some of these on a train the other day as I had a sugar craving and they were the only sweets available. Absolute shite, aren’t they? Feel your pain, buddy.


#14

this is making me angrier than it really should


#15

Absolutely dreadful, the concept is embarrassing as well. Never again.


#16


OOh, here’s a cautionary tale for you to feast your reading eyes on, I’m certain you’ll enjoy it…

A week or so back, whilst in Spain, I bought some Fini Jelly Beans, assuming they might be pretty good. Lo, they were merely not that good.

Went to a festival earlier in the summer and my friend bought what she thought was some fancy new chipotle dip, turned out to be pure butter “infused” with chipotle flavouring

We still ate it as it was dip though. It was delicious.


#19

went to Lidl last night

they’re selling cans of Weissbier for 99p a pop

I bought as much as I could and could barely cycle home

got nothing about butter, sorry
