Today I thought I'd bring you some finds from the Waitrose. Granted, I know Waitrose is considered more of an upscale supermarket (I mean, Princess Kate shops here.), so it's kind of like showing you Whole Foods finds rather than Kroger. But I'm a bit of a Princess myself, and Tesco is just kind of icky to me.
Here are some treasures you might find at a Scottish grocery store that I'm pretty sure you won't find at your local American supermarket.
Sure, America has its share of canned meats, but I'm pretty sure haggis isn't a staple at your local store. Y'all know I'm not a meat eater, nor am I a fan of canned foods in general, so all three of these things particularly disgust me. But I'm sure there's something equally disturbing back home, so no judgment here.
Meatballs: £0.79 = $1.27
Haggis: £1.09 = $1.73
Hot Dogs: £1.29 = $2.08
I've 'fessed up before that the one thing both David and I crave when either one of us finally recovers from a horrid migraine, is horribly processed macaroni and cheese. This stuff, however, has managed to be disgusting enough to evade even our impulse purchases.
Back home when I think of Heinz, I think of catsup and that's pretty much it. Over here, Heinz makes everything.
Price: £1.08 = $1.74
... especially beans. Or "beanz," if you will.
If you've ever tried to replicate a Scottish/English breakfast back in the States, it's these that you need.
£0.53 = $0.85
This is pretty much what makes Scottish grocery stores better than American grocery stores. The variety! The flavor! The price!
Ranging from £29.50 - £42.95
($47.47 - $69.12)
I've tried to load a few more photos for you, but the server seems to be having problems. Once I got to the Scotch, everything else seems less important anyway.
