Shopping Around the World

This is an addition to the Shopping Around the World that Bacon of Piglove and Fozzie started. Mom shopped at Canadian Superstore except for the beer.

POPCORN: This popcorn is already popped and ready to eat. Nothing lazy about my mom! Yea right..HA. Smartfood…sweet and salty. Sweet and salty is mom’s favourite. …………….$3.97 for 220 gram bag.

CHOCOLATES: Mom doesn’t care for these chocolates but here it is..a 183 gram box of turtles $4.98.

ICE CREAM: Mom doesn’t buy this very often…only when the temperature soars to great heights. We usually get the Superstore no name kind…three flavours. Mom likes chocolate, dad likes vanilla and both like strawberry…so both are happy with this assortment.
No Name ice cream 4 litres……….$5.37

BEER: We can’t buy liquor in the grocery stores. The government regulates the distribution of alcohol. So we must toddle off to a government liquor store for any booze. Mom doesn’t drink so this is dad’s contribution to SATW. The beer he enjoys is made by the Pacific Western Brewery….right here in Prince George. Ya…publicity! Although he wouldn’t turn down a Bud.
Cariboo beer….a six pack…$10.15.

Finally we have our random item. Mom loves clam chowder so guess what she chose?
RANDOM ITEM: Campbell’s Chunky Clam Chowder…540ml. $1.67 ON SALE

    I need to get in on this price thing monthly. I love Smart food too, but the cheddar kind- I let the kitties have a piece too, only one eats it all, most just lick the cheese off.

      Ellen. Have you tried Orville Redenbacher’s white cheese popcorn. Mom likes it better than Smartfood’s. She is not sure what it is…maybe its cheesier. I eat the cheese popcorn but not much of it. I must watch my waistline. hehe

    are that turtles with pecan nuts? … maybe that’s the reason that my momma drools on my keyboard hehehe. I had no clue that you have to go to a special booze store when you buy beer. Do you know why you have that law? My mom likes clam chowder too and we think your way to buy ice cream is brilliant, you have something for everyone in one box.

      Yep the turtles have pecans. Most peeps like them except mom…go figure. The government liquor store has been a fact ever since I can remember. There are cold beer and wine stores that charge more money but are privatized. Mostly there are government liquor stores. One reason for the govt. regulating the booze is MONEY. The provincial government makes tons of loot. Other than that it is an archaic law going way back to the Puritan ethic.
      Mom really should get better ice cream not just the house brand but she keeps getting it as there seem to be very few that make up this combination.

        oh it’s the money… and I thought it’s to protect young bipeds or to prevent alcohol abuse…
        it’s true ice creams with that combination are rare… probably they want that we buy two or three buckets instead of just one :o)

        The protection of minors and to stop alcohol abuse is probably how it started out…Puritan ethic. Now its just a money grab like lottery tickets.
        You got a point about the ice cream.
