Expat life

The ‘Exotic’ food section of Carrefour

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.

  1. 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.
