Marmite, HP Sauce, T bags, malt vinegar

Post by BLAKEVINE on Fri Sep 13, 2013 11:32 am

Just thought I would post a message as I went on a reccki to Argentat yesterday and in doing so found a few things in Super U which you might otherwise be ordering from UK. I appreciate that not everyone lives near Argentat, but, I found it interesting to note and could be useful to some. Prices in euros..

Marmite (med size) 4.03
Heinz baked beans 1.11
HP Sauce 2.28
Sarsons malt vin 1.46
Tabasco 2.55
T bags Yorkshire x 80 5.86
T bags Typhoo x 80 4.21

They even had Carrs Water biscuits but I forgot to write down the price.....

It's not always a problem getting the bits you miss - it's paying the price of them in France that hurts! Shocked

I agree Amber, but we don't crave those things much any more.
We seem to have replaced them with the French stuff, and to be honest, I buy my Typhoo tea bags in those 1100 at a time bags & I prefer those big tins of French baked beans in tomato sauce for under a euro. Not so much salt & sugar in them. Handy for those who do like them though.

Hi Simmo
I use the haricots en sauce tomate from Leclerc, I think they are called Notre Jardin, and other supermarkets sell them. I add a squeeze of ketchup and that's all.
I don't like Heinz or Crosse & Blackwell beans as they are really full of salt and sugar, and our English
friends and family have also expressed a preference for the French ones now.
Over the years we have been in France, I have to say that our tastes have changed, and now, the UK foods all seem so processed and full of stuff we don't need or care for.
I know it's all a matter of taste, and if you really want them to taste like the UK ones, just add a teaspoon of sugar and salt
and a dash of malt vinegar.
Good luck.

Neither of us like baked beans at all, but we get friends to bring tea bags from the UK as my OH drinks so much tea I wouldn't be able to afford the French prices! They also bring HP sauce (yuk), glace cherries, Bisto and Branston Pickle!
