List your favourite everyday food and drinks that you'll miss after Brexit

Not foie gras or caviar or anything like that.

Just everyday cheap things like cheeses and wines from Lidl, cheap and cheerful tiramisu from Tesco. I've just discovered the latter is made Italy, and I've never looked before.

Did you know that a lot of the dried porcini mushrooms are grown in Polish forests? No, I didn't either.

I am truly repentant but it's too late. I know I deserve Brexit.

First World Problems

I bought too many groceries for my refrigerator

Forgot my gardener's name, I'll have to ask him later

Tried to fast forward commercials, can't - I'm watching live T. V

I'm pretty sure the cookies in this airport lounge ain't gluten free

Can't remember which car I drove to the mall

My Sonicare won't recharge, now I gotta brush my teeth like a neanderathal

I'm sure they'll still be plenty of whine

HouseOfLametta - 01 Aug 2018 16:56:23 (#3 of 34)

Dirt. I used to love dirt.

browserbutton - 01 Aug 2018 16:57:17 (#4 of 34)

It should be good honest dirt. There won't be much of that after Brexit.

Non-chlorinated chicken sandwiches.

Im waiting for the Soup kitchens once weve exited and Corbyn is PM.

A tip: Turnip Soup - wait at the end of the queue (no more than 2 hours) and you get all the solid bits.

Woolton Pie - a must in a any post Brexit kitchen.

I remember when I used to come to France in the early 70s on family holidays and it was like the food was in colour for two weeks.

Intowntonight - 01 Aug 2018 17:06:42 (#8 of 34)

Did it taste in colour? - but I know what you mean

Tenesmus - 01 Aug 2018 17:10:13 (#9 of 34)

Ah, continental Europe bakery shop windows...

Whats wrong with Greggs - you Guardian reader, you.

WibbleAgain - 01 Aug 2018 17:18:50 (#11 of 34)

Greggs will be out of business. It won't be able to get the ingredients.

Intowntonight - 01 Aug 2018 17:20:38 (#12 of 34)

They can switch to being soup-kitchens

WibbleAgain - 01 Aug 2018 17:21:23 (#13 of 34)

If there's enough turnip to go round. We live in hope.

Intowntonight - 01 Aug 2018 17:22:18 (#14 of 34)

Local Soup with local turnips for local people

WibbleAgain - 01 Aug 2018 17:22:59 (#15 of 34)

Quite right. None for forriners.

TheExcession - 01 Aug 2018 17:54:32 (#16 of 34)

Plenty of gammon steaks. They might be a bit tough though...

carterbrandon - 01 Aug 2018 18:18:29 (#17 of 34)

#14: We need a new Brexit Minister of Agriculture, and they need to be called Townsend.

JohnIlly - 02 Aug 2018 10:11:17 (#18 of 34)

After this year's drought, turnips and all other root vegetables will be in short supply. Woolton Pie will be a luxury.

SinnerBoy - 03 Aug 2018 19:25:08 (#19 of 34)

Bread and butter. Salt. Cabbage.

TheExcession - 08 Aug 2018 11:20:12 (#20 of 34)

Given that the NFU have reported that a no deal Brexit will result in the UK running out of food by August 2019, we can replace this thread with one word: everything.
