Custard Pots II

Found with its counterpart ‘custard pots’ at Morrisons in Bridport, U.K., this list is in the same hand, on the back of a betting slip but intertwined with a Waitrose receipt for items listed.

Some items are duplicated from the first list but also included are two tins of baked beans, Kellogg’s Fruit and Fibre and some ‘ready baked’ potatoes.

The Best List Ever?

This is possibly the best shopping list ever.

Items are grouped by food type and proximity to each other in the shop. For example, pizza and Magnums, both from the freezer section. Fruit together. Veg together. Why are peas on their own?

An incredibly well thought through work of logistical brilliance, does the actual layout of the food groups map onto the aisles in the supermarket? Maybe not.

This list is in two pens. Is it in two hands or is the blue text the same person but just writing on a soft surface? Are Bill’s meals for somebody called Bill or is it Bill’s the restaurant chain? Josh is maybe a younger person.

Excellent.

Banahaha

Torn piece of note paper, turned, with blue biro. I am not sure I can read all of these words. My best guess is:

  • Chocolate almond
  • Salt
  • Peanut
  • Callllorole
  • Cashew x 1
  • Orange juice
  • Banahaha

A lot of nuts, or very few is the lack of plurals is to be considered seriously.

Interestingly, this list has two sides. What are we to make of this?
