Fancy some coffee?
Then pop down to Tesco. They do coffee filters, iced coffee, ground coffee, granulated coffee. coffee pods, coffee whatsits, coffee gadgets, coffee idontknowivelosttheplots, and all in Fairtrade!
However you make your coffee, they do it in FT. Oh, and tea, Ftea, of course.
Have you ever tried Aldi's chocolate?
This is really good chocolate. The sort that would make Greg Wallace's hair curl with joy.
And what an excellent range! Pop along to Aldi and pick up a bar of chocolate that will change your life. How? It all depends on the flavour. That's all I'm saying.
Can you sing well?
Pop down to Waitrose, buy and drink some of this FT vodka, and any question marks about your singing ability will be swept away
Get your Breakfast here
We were impressed when we found the Co-op in Stanbridge Road sells cereal with the FT mark. A great way to have breakfast.
Or lunch if you're a student.
All you need is some Fairtrade Punch to go with the cereal box and you've got a proper food fight.
Well done Morrisons!
We're doing the rounds for the 2019 FT product spreadsheet*. Then we spotted something.
Morrisons own FT wine. Plus, they do FT flowers and chocolate. So don't go down The Club this weekend. Go to Morrisons, and have a quiet night in with the pleasures of life.
*I know, so exciting. Will Tesco win this year? How are M&S doing? A weary nation turns its face away from politics to the one thing that really matters- the Leighton-Linslade FT supermarket league.
Spotted at Sainsbury's
Seen there- cashew nuts. We are so happy now.
We would say more, but there's no time. Cashew later!
