heinz beans new zealand

here’s a thing.

heinz baked beans in a New Zealand supermarket in the UK produce section which includes things like Heinz beans, Yorkie Bars, twiglets, shortbread and IrnBru.
i like to refer to this section of the supermarket as the ‘British Aisles’.   i don’t know if anyone has considered the implications if Scottish devolve on how they organise these shelves.
anyway, i walked past these beans today.  75pence on the tin, but $3.79 locally, which is around five pence short of two pounds (i haven’t got a pound sign on my New Zealish keyboard).
and you think you have a bean charging problem!
they also had 20 pence fingers of fudge at the equivalent of fifty pence.

  1. Sound like one of Esther Rantzen’s standard lines in the “That’s Life” days.
    “That has to be the most expensive ….. unless you know better!”

    I love the ‘British Aisles’

    BTW: show us a picture of your NZ keyboard!
