Mine has to eggs. I have to have rich delicious golden yolk eggs. I don't care how much they cost.

Does it have to be just one?

For me it would be Eggs, bread, butter and coffee.

It’s a Mumsnet cliche but it has to be naice ham. I can’t bear wet plasticky ham.

Wine. I’d rather drink water than shit wine.

Agree with eggs

My biggest food indulgence is bastides mini saucisson. My DH asked why I didn’t just buy pepperami 🙄

Can only get them from Waitrose - god I sound like a right tosser, but they are the best thing on earth.

Weirdly, I much prefer supermarket own brand crisps to walkers etc.

And beans - own brand are awful.

Eggs and butter.

ihopeyouwitchesareready Wed 07-Nov-18 13:36:58

Meat. I can never ever buy cheap meat.

I go veggie if out and about and I don’t trust the meat to be good enough.

Bizarrely, I adore cheap crisps (you know, frazzles and cheese puffs and space raiders and the like that you get from newsagents) give me them over Kettle chips any day.

Wine for sure.

Even my friends dh goes and buys me a decent bottle of wine, and her the rubbish stuff blush

Lurpak, decent cheddar, good tea, sausages and Port.

Heismyopendoor Wed 07-Nov-18 13:44:13

Eggs, have to be organic ones

Tea - never buy bags only loose (preferably whole) leaf.

Peachydream Wed 07-Nov-18 13:44:42

Tea Bags, I like good strong tea & resent using 2 bags.

Not overly fussed about anything else.

VanellopeVonSchweetz99 Wed 07-Nov-18 13:47:36

Kerrygold butter, guatemalan elephant coffee, wine, steak, chicken. Otherwise I'd rather go without.

TheBrilloPad Wed 07-Nov-18 13:48:10

Coleslaw. Only the "finest" range stuff is any good, the cheap stuff is rank. I'll buy the basic/value range of everything else!

Idontbelieveinthemoon Wed 07-Nov-18 13:49:05

Steak always has to come from the butcher.

Coffee I never scrimp on.

Ketchup has to be Heinz.

HRTpatch Wed 07-Nov-18 13:49:12

Eggs...Burford Browns

VanellopeVonSchweetz99 Wed 07-Nov-18 13:51:41

P.S: Yes to Burford Browns!

SheSnapsThenSheFarts Wed 07-Nov-18 13:54:23

Jam. Life is too short to buy cheap jam, it has to be Bonne Maman.

Wolfiefan Wed 07-Nov-18 13:54:36

Coffee. I can’t drink bad coffee.

Knittedfairies Wed 07-Nov-18 13:55:05

Decent bread.

Organic meat
