Rancid butter

Haven't a clue what galangal is, or need to know what to use if you can't buy creme fraiche locally? We're sure our knowledgeable members will be able to point you in the right direction...

Bertolli (Rancid butter thread)

Dottie May, I have never tried Bertolli.

I love premium olive oil dip with a dribble of balsamic in a small bowl served with a meal for dipping bread in. I was introduced to it in Spain where it is usually too hot for butter to be put out.

I'd better try the Bertolli!

Rancid butter

I've only experienced rancid butter once, and it was in my fridge, already opened, and not re-covered properly!
Our local Sainsbury's, though small, is brilliant. We primarily shop there, as we regularly find the branded products we buy are cheaper than both Asda and Tesco. The one time I was disappointed, I e-mailed them and received a gift voucher, and the issue was much improved on our next visit. They also support a huge number of local charities, in many different ways, and allow different charities to do bag-packing each week. I've never seen any of our other local supermarkets do this.
I also don't particularly enjoy Greggs products (despite working for it's sister company in the past). However, both my sons love Greggs sausage rolls.
As with all topics in this thread, each to their own!

Morrisons

I don't think you can say it's an "awful" shop, just because it's stocks products you're not interested in.

Morrisons

I used to go in there when our local one was a Safeway and then a Morrisons. Then my pregnant daughter said she couldn't go in there because it had a certain smell and I have never dared go in there since then in case I smell the smell!!

I do sometimes nip in to use their loos, but not to buy anything because they don't seem to have grasped the concept of opening extra tills when there are a lot of customers.

M&S often fall down in the queue department too.

Morrisons (Rancid butter thread)

Our Morrisons had a horrid stale tobacco smell by the checkouts at one side. I complained (was really stomach-churning) and no doubt others did, and it stopped. I suppose it was to do with a staff smoking area and a ventilation inlet? Anyway, it's fine now. I don't suppose the building ventilation was designed to cope with dozens of people smoking a few feet from an inlet.

Today, it's perfectly good in most respects though despite Morrisons having their own fishing fleet landing at Falmouth, I think, the wet fish freshness is not acceptable much of the time. Their kippers are to die for -- lovely big plump and tasty kippers choice of normal or Manx.

"I don't think you can say it's an 'awful' shop, just because it's stocks products you're not interested in."

I believe I already have! However, if you;d like further justification I can also add to it:

Filthy shops

Amazingly bad fresh produce (the last time I went into one there was actually mould on some carrots)

Total lack of customer service coupled with appallingly staff.

Own brand products which I'd not feed to a donkey..........

They only sell pure rubbish and have totally failed in their aim to get better penetration "down south" due to the fact that they have not altered their product range to make it more suitable for the area.

I would happily do a little dance if they turned out to be one of the high street casualties. They are not fit to be allowed to trade.

Your memory serves you well except you seem to have forgotten that it was done for a bet and a laugh!

I also could not actually eat it!

Rancid butter

The other day I bought some Country Life and THAT was slightly rancid so I wondered it it's me. Yesterday I bought some M&S Jersey salted which is delicious. I took three soldiers of dry toast and put Morrisons salted on one, Country Life on the next and M&S Jersey on the other. Morrisons was horrid - nasty - Country Life was not pleasing to me, and M&S perfect. So it isn't just my taste buds. Today M&S had run out of Jersey....

I have the M&S Jersey stuff now too. Its beautiful!

Morrisons

Although not my local supermarket I do occasionally shop in two fairly close Morrisons. They seem OK to me.
