Back in Sainsburys (that is to say, back in England) I always used to go to the exotic foods section to buy black beans and KA.
In short: I love exotic food sections in supermarkets.
Now that I’m an expat in France there is an exotic food section featuring what I suppose must be all the most sought after items from the UK. Awesome! Notice that there is only one remaining tin of Heinz baked beans and I was the lucky son-of-a-gun who bought it for €1.52… “Suckers!”
Still some €3.43 tins of baked beans avec pork sausages though. Booyakasha.
Zoom in to find your favourite brand. Also big up to all the Ambrosia massive (especially @marky141 and @whatamellowman) keeping your products right on my doorstep, nuff respect.
My dad is constantly on the hunt for these sections in the shops of Eastern Europe. Once, his expat friends found a shop selling cheddar cheese. They spread the word and pretty soon the store sold out. For some reason they never restocked.
Hey, Cheddar is a high price commodity in France too. I think the only reason Carrefour restocks it is because of my need for cheese on toast, nachos and baked potatoes cheese and beans lol. Hope you like my blog Vicky!?
I like the way you write Chris. Keeps me reading.
