As you will know by now if you read my blog with any regularity, I love (supermarket) shopping. So it will be no surprise to you that whilst in Buffalo on the weekend, one of our pit stops was Wegman‘s.
What I got most excited about was the BEER! Love that you can buy beer in the regular supermarket, unlike antiquated Ontario with its “liquor” and “beer” stores. Yup, that’s right, the place you buy the beer in Ontario is called, creatively “The Beer Store“. You buy everything else at the Liquor Control Board of Ontario stores or the LCBO as it is known – which for a while when I moved to Canada I thought was a place called the “Elsiebeeo”. Anyway, I digress…
I spent a few minutes in raptures over the very funky beers available in the supermarket. Like these:
And what else, you ask?
Err, yes, I have a thing for nut butters but here in Canada you can’t get all those ones with the chocolate. I also have a thing for cereal (bars) involving chocolate. See, it doesn’t take much to please me…
All in all, a thoroughly fun 45 minutes wandering the aisles. I seriously think there is a futire in those oft-thought about “supermarket tours” of different countries. I mean, I’d sign up, wouldn’t you???
