Sprouts -I hate the feckers.

Never ever is quite hard actually, because there's all sorts of shite, like Pot Noodles or value loo roll, which I'd buy 25 years ago and not touch now.

hmm Supermarkets carry tens of thousands of different items. Good luck listing everything you've never bought! grin

Actually chippy - just think of the things you have never bought. It is not that easy.

And I do know that supermarkets carry tens of thousands of different items.

Don' buy meat-vegetarian.

Those cooked chickens smell like a fart in a bag IMHO

Prepacked cakes- how long have they been there?
In the ethnic section- "Cock Soup" I kid you notice FnarrFnarr. I assume its made of male chickens rather than....

Mardy and Lord we often buy a whole roast chicken, pot of garlic mayo, baguette and a few finger salady things (radishes, cherry toms etc). Then sit in garden/favourite park/scenic spot/bus shelter and eat chicken with fingers, dipped in garlic mayo. Best picnic ever. Never noticed a fart smell but we've only ever bought from Waitrose (closest to the bus stop!)

Never bought:
white sandwich bread (the plastic kind)
anything in a tin that's not a basic ingredient (ie. I've bought chickpeas and tinned tomatoes, but never a chicken curry in a tin)
sweet popcorn
