British And Irish Foods

I was delighted to discover, in a random Jewel Osco in the middle of nowhere in Illinois, a supermarket section entitled “British and Irish foods”. For a nation whose national dish is curry and whose culinary achievements are usually mocked, I was curious to see what on earth was in there.


Here are the results:

  • Tea
  • Digestives
  • Lucozade
  • Heinz beans
  • Sarson’s vinegar

I was also tickled to note the price of said beans.


Although the pound may be weak right now, I think I’ll wait until I’m back in Blighty before I indulge with beans on toast.
