    Ok was heading down the now wider aisles at one of my local Coles, trying to locate where they have moved everything to when I stumbled across a new section called International with lots of green "new" stickers. Lo and behold there was a UK section next to the Mexican...my son and I spent some time examining what represented goods from that fair isle.

     

    Tunnocks caramel bar thingies.

    Shivers jams n marmalade.

    Paxo sage n onion stuffing

    Birds custard powder

    Colmans mustard

    Colmans mint sauce

    Ambrosia rice

    Devon tinned custard

    Yorkshire pudding mix.

    Pickled onions

    Pickled red cabbage

    Tinned curry sauce, the brand that has the little man on it.

     

    and a few other sundry items.

     

    So if you really have a penchant for Pickled red cabbage then head over to Coles at Castle Plaza, Edwardstown......myself, I'd rather have some prawn cocktail crisps. :biglaugh:

    LOL had to laugh - guess what I bought on Sunday at Coles St Agnes? Pickled red cabbage and Colemans mint sauce! Bloomin' bill came to nearly $300 though so OH has banned me from that section in the future (I did buy a few other things by the way, it wasn't $300 for just those two items!!)

    Well our local Coles which is the biggest in this area, never had a UK section and NEVER sold pickled red cabbage. The stores are all being revamped in the new Wesfarmers layout and so they will all stock the same. I am well aware that other stores in other areas :biglaugh: have had these mini UK sections. Stop trying to wind me up cos I'm so horizontal right now I don't think it's possible to rise.....and this was just a light hearted observtion hence the title ...chortle :)

    Coles see's a market it this area, and have altered there stocking system to accomadate this. Not just english stuff, other nationalities too. So i was told, how reliable i don't know. I did ask if the profit margin was greater than having 300 different types of shampoo, they smiled!
