Weird things that have vanished from the shops due to Brexit/Covid that you didn't predict.

So, I have not seen a Knorr stockpot of any flavour in Waitrose/Co-op, 2 corner shops for at least 6 weeks now.

What have you found missing that you never predicted (bog rolls and flour are in good supply.....)

And yes, this is a middle class woes thread

There's no herbs in Sainsbury's.

None at all??

The corner shop also seems to have run out of cracked black pepper and sea salt kettle chips, for at least 3 weeks now.

This is making WFH less pleasant.

I have, but not everyone thinks I'm wierd.

#2 Yes! Nothing! Twice. Once at about 3pm and a different day about 7pm. A whole row of empty boxes.

melpomene - 20 Feb 2021 15:29:06 (#6 of 156)

Hmm, covid or brexit do you think?

popstar7 - 20 Feb 2021 15:30:41 (#7 of 156)

It turned out to be a No Dill Brexit.

Over Christmas just gone: marzipan

During first lockdown: Branston Pickle

Very good Popstar, groans all round over here.

popstar7 - 20 Feb 2021 15:34:30 (#10 of 156)

It reads like I walked you into that but I swear I didn't.

All the soft fruit seems to be Moroccan, not Spanish.

carterbrandon - 20 Feb 2021 16:32:30 (#12 of 156)

And cherry tomatoes, I'm noticing.

There was a definite shortage of leeks last October. Most of my weekly exercise was in pursuit of leeks for a while.

Macpaddy - 20 Feb 2021 16:37:33 (#14 of 156)

Essential for Singapore noodles.

#13: Leeks are supposed to be in season, but they are right sad specimens in my greengrocer.

Pancetta. Across multiple different supermarkets.

Here in the EU the cat litter situation has been glitchy for well over a year. There was some last week for the first time since mid December - fortunately I had stocked up. I hope the fact that it reappeared means they've now sorted the supply line.

Catspyjamas17 - 20 Feb 2021 16:50:12 (#18 of 156)

You can get Quixo stockpots in Aldi, and they often have the Knorr ones too. Stockports as I call them.

melpomene - 20 Feb 2021 16:52:35 (#19 of 156)

Leeks are now ok again, but yes, pancetta is hard to come by.

melpomene - 20 Feb 2021 16:54:32 (#20 of 156)

Ouch Elderberry, having two cats, that sounds grim. Amazon prime delivers them here, luckily, so I stock up on the big bags of catsan as the cats are fussy bastards.
