never again Euroshopper rice

November 2nd, 2006

That's it, I'm never buying that cheapass Euroshopper brown rice again, even if it is dirt cheap. Trying to cook it had me confused about when it was supposed to be done. At no point during cooking did it really taste edible, even though it was soft enough by rice standards.

I'm generally a fan of Euroshopper, they have really cheap stuff and it's generally quite good too. For instance the "English breakfast tea" they produce is very good and incredibly cheap (35c for a pack of 20 tea bags). Most tea products sell for around a buck and aren't nearly as good either. They also have low price soda that's good. But don't buy their pizzas, I did once and was made to regret it.

    Euroshopper is always a risk. The way my mum works around it; is she buys a package/carton/whatever of her regular brand, then buys an additional euroshopper version. In case the latter stinks, there's still good stuff in the cupboard. Works everytime, saves a lot of money on the long run.

    So brown rice... I wonder where that comes from...

    Well the only reason I got it was cause of that effin maze that is AH. Looking for stuff there is like traveling through the desert, you have visions and stuff, think you saw something that you didn't, it's a crazy place.

    And hell, I would have gotten the Euroshopper white rice, but it wasn't there. I've had that before and it's fine. But I don't know what brown rice is, I thought maybe it was like white sugar and brown sugar, I don't care which one I use. Turns out - not.

    Euroshopper's nuts are the best ever and they are dirt cheap. Their canned tomatoes are kind of ok, but nowadays everything that has to do with such things I tend to buy ecologic, somehow sophisticated, but it makes me feel better

    Bah ecologic food, those places charge an arm and a leg for the simplest thing.

    Places? you find them in a normal supermarket in Sweden. They are usually more expensive than normaĺ ones but as I said, I feel better buying them.
