...and they always called me a bit "Britcentric."
Yes, I know I just went to Shamrock & Thistle last weekend. Yes, I know. However, they circulate a few papers that are of interest to me, one of which is a weekly paper. Besides, every time I go I notice something new.
I noticed they had Marmite today. I looked at the jar and held it for like, three minutes. I put it back. Not a Marmite-buyin' day. I chuckled at the cans of R. White's Lemonade and peeked into the Sussex Teapot to see the ladies having tea and eating little butties.
I was looking at the sauces and some cockles that looked disgusting when I noticed the boxes of crisps. Walkers Crisps, to be exact. I don't know how I missed them previously! After looking at all the flavors, I selected one to eat.
See, we don't have meat and seafood flavored chips in the U.S. so just the concept of prawn or steak-flavored chips is totally foreign to me.
All I can say is that the first taste got my attention, totally. Then, I practically inhaled the rest of the bag.
I'm glad I only got one. I'm also glad I don't live closer to the store, because I would get super-fat off of Cadbury Flake bars, McVitie's biscuit things and whatever else I could get my mitts on.
