Yesterday the family and me went out shopping. Well, it wasn't really a planned shopping trip. Wifey and me just wanted to get a few things like chili paste and some cucumbers cos I wanted her to make some sambal (chili mixture pounded and fried in oil, best description I can think of) and we ended up going to Tesco.
And as everyone knows, you can never go shopping and buy exactly what you just want or need and true to that adage, we ended up buying a whole load of other stuff. And among them was this biscuit that only cost 20 cents! Yes 20 cents and no they didn't contain melamine or caustic soda as part of the ingredients and neither were they expired or anything. I checked. They were just 20 cents, that's all. No catch at all.
Now whenever we're in Tesco, both wifey and me will always head over the biscuit section where she will grab her favourite biscuits and I will grab my chocolate chip cookies. They're both the Tesco in house brand which I've blogged about a while back. And they're pretty cheap for imported biscuits. Then we'll normally head for the alcohol section, not that we're drunkards or anything, we're just after the Tesco Shandy in house brand which even the boys enjoy.
Yeah, yeah, I know I should be letting them drink anything that contains alcohol but hey it's only a measly 2% alcohol content (I think) and they only get one can each anyway ... hehehe ... We buy that Shandy by the dozen cos it's one of our favourite drinks. It doesn't make you high and it's a real thirst quencher on a hot day or night.
Just as we were about to head to the alcohol section wifey notice these Tesco brand biscuits called Nice and it was only 20 cents. We both did a double take, stopped picked it up , turned it around in our hands and checked the price again (for at least 10 times) and checked and checked and checked again to see if it was expired products or anything. And to our delight, it wasn't expired.
I quickly grabbed at least 5 whole packs of it and ran off to find a price check machine but unfortunately the machine refused to scan the price. We wanted to take more than five but since we were not 100% sure it was really that cheap we just bought 5 packets but I told wifey that if they charge me more that it's stated there I'm going to kick up a ruckus they'll never forget and thankfully when we went to pay for it, it really was only 20 cents!
And the biscuits tasted oh so lovely. I'm not a biscuit person but this one was all that much tastier since it was so cheap :D I just love Tesco and I know this is like free advertising for them but who cares, where in the world can you find imported biscuits for 20 cents? I'm planning to go there again this weekend to grab a whole lot more, if it's still available that is. And the Shandy too ... LOL!
