Let’s hope it doesn’t come to this, but what item of food would you hate to do without if it just wasn’t available anymore?

I would really miss my evening mug of proper cocoa, not hot chocolate, real cocoa.

Cheese. But I’m sure it’d do me no end of good to be without it for a while. smile

Fresh vegetables, I have always got frozen peas and sweet corn just in case, but I would really struggle without fresh veggies.

Fresh fruit and chocolate.

I would hate to live without my copious cups of tea - so, tea and milk.

Crumpets. Lurpak. Tea. Cocoa. Fresh produce.

Real coffee and the milk to go with it, cheese and bread, but maybe that would be a good thing, bananas I think have at least 1 every day, Greek yogurt, other fruits I buy whatever's in season, and fresh veg, frozen peas and sweetcorn, the latter mainly for the gc, in freezer, but they tend to be backups. And this for sure wine

Fresh fruit and veg, Burford Brown eggs, flour, Président butter, Cornish Gold milk.
