yep...I am a tesco whore.
I really need to go. the fridge needs reaquainted with food.
(actually, so does my stomach)
You aren't alone. I have a card and a key fob. :o)
the key fob is such a good idea, especially with the self service tills they have now....
I have one too, and a Somerfield one. Didn't know that Tesco were doing self service tills tho.
our tesco has them.....they're great :)...and most people are too technophobic to use them so there is rarely a queue
i do like them, i've come across them in m&s; before. i'll have to keep an eye out for them
I get my groceries delivered. BUt I use the Tesco Metro in town alot. THus the key fob is my friend. I too am a Tesco whore :o)
we gave up getting our groceries delivered by tesco, we're 100% organic when it comes to food, and they don't seem to be able to understand the idea that a "non organic" substitute isn't acceptable...so now we go into the store, and what we can't get there, we get at our organic corner shop.
Organic...I think I've made comment on that before :o)
hahah...yes, and I believe I accused you of being pedantic =)
Yes. You did.
Although the whole organic thing is a bit of a pet peeve.
why's that Kos?...I thought it was all bollocks until I actually started cooking organic, and then went back to normal....normal veg, and especially meat, are in comparison...tasteless.
Cause all food is organic. Its the name that bugs the hell outta me.
Of course food that doesn't have the added preservatives and such is gonna taste better.
I'm with kostika on this, but I've gotten used to it. Probably comes from having done chemistry in college :)
I do prefer "organic" food, I should stress, and we pretty much eat it exclusively :)
I would love to eat "organic" only, but my pocketbook doesn't stretch that far.
We took the decision to switch when our daughter was born. It does cost more, but things seem to be a bit cheaper now than they were two years ago :)
we switched a couple of years ago...the prices have dropped significantly recently....but it is still stupidly expensive...
Still not cheap enough to compare with the prices of normal food. SO I won't be switching any time soon.
The organic/inorganic argument is a pet peeve round here also. It's just the innacurate naming that's a problem.of course it's organic. We're not eating rocks.
But as to the food quality over preservative-free foods, I agree completely. When I can I just get food at Whole Foods in Chelsea (that's Chelsea here, not Chelsea there), but there's only so much I can carry on the subway home. Locally, it's much harder to buy preservative-free.
bronxelf: Have you considered Fresh Direct? Almost everyone in my office uses it and they love it. It never delivered out to where I was in Queens so I haven't tried it myself, but have heard good things.
The inaccurate name bugs me too cos sometimes it makes me waste time picking up things (shampoo & the like) that has the word on the bottle, and then realising it isnt what i thought.
A workmate of mine recently went "organic" and said she cut her food bill by 30-50% by, at the same time, buying mostly raw ingredients and making more stuff herself at home.. soups, sauces, bread etc.
More time consuming initially i suppose but probably not too bad once youve gotten into the habit of it..and probably well worth it on taste!
