Inside a London Grocery Store

I'm enjoying working in London this week, even if it means I spend an hour out of every day lost. At least it takes me to cool places. I popped into a grocery store today on one of my clandestine journeys and thought I'd share a few things that are different in a British grocery store. First, eggs are not refrigerated. You'll find them next to the bread.


Cocktails, however, are available premixed and canned for your convenience.


I don't know what these Reese's donuts are, but I'm sure I would approve.


Also, healthy foods are inexpensive and pre-packaged. There were salads, sandwiches, snack packs and all manner of protein-rich snacks ready to go, for $1-$5 a piece.


I had to buy these - you can't get them stateside because American children keep eating the prize inside. It's like Easter every day because each treat has a toy inside.

Kinder eggs are my childhood favorite! They were (are?) super popular in Russia and I always gorged on them whenever I would visit. I actually smuggled one back to the U.S last time I went to Russia, I had no idea they were illegal here! Thank goodness I wasn't caught, I can't imagine the fine I would've gotten...

Have a great time in London!

My sis-in-law brought a GIANT Kinder egg character to Easter, after traveling to Greece with her boyfriend.

Also, I've heard that eggs don't need to be refridgerated. Wonder why we do that in the US.

I am impressed that the healthy food was cheap. Definitely not the case here.
