American aisle in Tesco!
There’s an aisle in Tesco’s in the UK that has just American food! How exciting, trilled my friends back in the UK!
But let’s take a closer look at these shelves stacked with American goodness….
Oh dear, my teeth are grinding at the thought of all this candy! Naughty, naughty Tesco. Really, why add to the UK’s already sugar-infested junk food collection adorning the aisles?
A whole year in the USA
Yep, we’ve been in the USofA a whole year as of today. Wowsers.
It’s all been such a new, interesting, weird, crazy, odd, funny, brilliant, slightly surreal experience.
Here are some of my favourite pics from our time here so far:
I have met some truly amazing people, who have welcomed this Brit with warmth and kindness. The things that has struck me is how interested people are – and how very interesting. We have friends and community and that counts for so much – meaning I am getting to know and understand the American way of life even more.
However, I have so many things to find out about America and Americans still – it’s all to play for! And whilst I am still a tourist, with an endless bucket list, I feel at home in the USA. How awesome is that! 😉
I know I’ve adopted some of the lingo, because I got chided for saying ‘cell phone’ when I was back in the UK. Plus, I now just call the ‘loo’ the bathroom, because it’s just easier (although I see disappointment in the eyes of some Americans who were hoping I would say ‘loo’ or ‘toilet’ in my British accent) 🙂 And I guess I do call them ‘fries’….but I still call it a ‘boot’, not a ‘trunk’…and it amuses me to say ‘bum’ and ‘bottom’ in front of Americans…..but I still refuse to say ‘potty’…!!
P.S. To the the guy who stumbled across my site by tapping in ‘British housewife playing with herself’, I’m sorry you didn’t find what you were looking for here, but I hope you had a nice evening anyway, and found something more up your alley elsewhere….. 😉
Haha! Brilliant post script.
How we chortled about that!
Yes, thanks for my first LOL of the day!
Ok, where is this Tescos? ASDA has a lot of American food too, for obvious reasons.
Bishops Cleeve apparently!
Nope, not the Bishop’s Cleeve one — which is my local. I just discovered the “American Corner” there and it has all the same items as in you picture, but far fewer of each. I suspect your picture was take at a superstore Tesco. I, too was disappointed with all the candy (and I wonder how much of the Hershey bars will sell). However, on principal I bought a tin of pumpkin puree, which I use for upset doggie tummies. Just wanted to make sure that is kept in stock. I doubt if I will buy anything else — welllll, maybe a bottle of A1 sauce when my bottle of HP runs out.
Brilliant post (again). I’m tempted to google that one myself….
Go on, I dare you (my husband did it to see too!)
Blimey, so many pages! 🙂
Yes Claire cell phone indeed, great seeing you though 😉 x
EXCELLENT CLAIRE!! XX YEEEE HAAAA!
Very witty and entertaining Claire!
Love it! Have enjoyed your blog since discovering it.
Thanks loads Mike! 🙂
I suppose a certain portion of the population say ‘potty’ its not something I have said since I was a kid. IF I did feel the need to announce my intentions I would say ‘take a wiz’ or a ‘dump’. Reading my way through 20 to 30 a day, much amused.
Nice one John!
