GROCERY SHOPPING IN A BRITISH SUPERMARKET ??


Jo: What’s going on everybody? Damon: Hey- Ow!
Jo: Ow! Jo: Damon’s sick!
Damon: We’ve been in London Damon: We’ve been in London for a good week now- We haven’t filmed much Jo: Excuse us, excuse the sickness Jo: We just didn’t film because we feel like we live here. Because honestly, don’t you feel like you live here? Damon: I do live here Jo: Don’t we sound like we live here screaming in the middle of this- like a very normal street with a camera? Damon: American accents Jo: What are we about to film today? Damon: Stop, stop Damon: Okay, so we clearly feel like locals here, we don’t wanna leave London but what we do wanna do right now is go explore a British grocery store. Jo: Okay, so Damon’s pretty sick which means we have to- pick up some strepsils! Damon: S- Okay Jo: If you don’t know about Europe’s best kept secret everybody, it’s strepsils. What is that? Damon: I always get strepsils when I travel, why? Jo: And I always lose my voice, why? I don’t shut up and you d- you… Damon: They have this little- like- drug here, I guess you could say. They have some- but like the good kind- you know what drugs are for your like- you know what if you like drugs- it doesn’t matter. Jo: We’re in England, these words are normal.
Damon: Okay- Damon: Drugs! Medicine! They have a good medicine here for your throat called strepsils Damon: I wanna go find some of that but I also wanna go find- some like interesting British foods Jo: Yes, so today we’re going explore a local British grocery store because you know that’s the only way we get by with these expensive prices here in London Jo: So, are you ready to go? Damon: I’m ready
Jo: Mr. Throat Boy? Damon: Let’s do it! Damon: Okay, so we’ve been shopping for five minutes Jo: You’ll never believe what we’ve found Jo: [British Accent] Some nice little Bacon Rashers Damon: [British Accent] Fabulously Fruity Gooseberry Fool Jo: Yummy Fish Pie Damon: Mini Beef Pasties Jo: Steak Pie Damon: Some Clotted Cream Jo: Spinach, Feta & Toasted Pine Nut Pie Damon: Cheese with Ham Damon: Cheese with Prawns Damon: Cheese with Chives Jo: Original Cheese Damon: Full Fat Soft Cheese Jo: Darling, would you like some succulent Rhubarb Crumbles Damon: Some Dessicated Coconut Jo: Doesn’t everyone wanna just “Squirt some Anchor Magic?” Damon: Jo, would you like some Orange Juice with Juicy Bits? Jo: I’ve had that. The juicy bits were actually kinda good. Damon: Okay, this part of British grocery stores kind of grosses me out Damon: Some people have strep throat and yet you still have the bread out for everyone’s germs to get on. Jo: You know what I do love about a good European grocery store? Anywhere you go you can find a delicious Bread with chocolate bits inside. Jo: With juicy chocolate bits! For like a pound! £1.20. Jo: It’s like why ain’t nobody getting fat in Europe? I don’t know Jo: What’s the deal with not refrigerating eggs and milk? Damon: It’s £1! Jo: But you know what I mean? Jo: Like what do we have in our eggs that we need to refrigerate or better yet what do people here have in their eggs that they don’t need to refrigerate? Jo: You guys I’m really torn between the Roasted Chicken & Thyme flavoured crisps or the Thai Sweet Chilli flavoured crisps. So many flavoured crisps. Damon: So another part that’s interesting about shopping in an International grocery store is looking for the American isle. As Americans we’re gonna look for the American isle. Jo: I already see some Reese’s Pops. Damon: Okay, see they nailed it with the- they nailed it with the Pop Charts. Damon: They’ve got Beef Jerky, they’ve got Twinkies, they’ve got the Nerds, they’ve got the Snickers. These were things from my childhood. Jo: Twinkies. Damon: Ew! Jo: Is that a lime Twinkie? Damon: Everyone thinks we’re just trying to hate on British grocery stores. We’re not, because this looks disgusting, America. Jo: They’ve got the Pumpkin fillings, Mac and Cheese that’s only plastic in a box. Jo: Did you ever eat that when you were little? Damon: Yes. Yes, yes. I did. Jo: You know what to avoid, this is how you know this is an accurate American isle. Jo: When I first moved to the States, I actually refused to eat Mac and Cheese because I thought that if I ate Mac and Cheese I would become American. Swear. Damon: And that was the last thing I ever wanted to do! Jo: I never wanted to- no, now I’m like Mac and Cheese for days! Jo: I love Mac and Cheese now but… Damon: When I check out here with my card, you know what they do that’s so interesting? Damon: They- I have to sign it, sign my receipt. Then they’re like “Can I see your proof of your signature?”. I’m like my signature changes all the time so if that’s your only proof… Jo: These people will not let you buy anything with your credit card if you do not have a signature on the back of your card. Jo: You know what happened? This man stared at me until I signed the back of my card. Jo: And then the lady told me that if you don’t sign the back of your card within the first 30 days there’s a sealer that automatically seals it so you physically can’t sign over the signature. Damon: See, I haven’t had that big of a problem but- Announcer: Colleague announcement, can a member of food to go please contact 301? That’s a member of food to go to please contact 301, thank you. Jo: Everything sounds so lovely. Damon: So good. It’s more like they look at the signature that you sign on the receipt and they match it to your ID to make sure it’s identical. Damon: And if it’s not they’ll be like “Sir”… Damon: But.. I’m like that’s me!
Jo: Like you can’t use your credit card. Jo: Weird…
Damon: Anyways, that’s my observation Jo: Are we done? Damon: You know what Jo? I’ve been enjoying this experience so much that I’m just gonna check out with all this stuff in my cart. Jo: That’s my chocolate. Damon: Get a different one at least! You always get this one! Jo: No, because- Says Mr. I always buy the same chocolate milk in every grocery store in my life. Damon: That’s not true I always buy the local chocolate milk. Jo: I always try the local chocolate and then it gets my stomach all messed up. Damon: Okay, everyone, if you liked this video make sure to give it a thumbs up Jo: Comment below, what are things everybody needs to try when they are in a British grocery store. Jo: I don’t know! Did we miss things? Damon: I just like- I think it’s a very important thing- like, obviously, you need to experience the food culture of a country Damon: But you also need to explore the grocery stores because I think it says a lot about the people who live in a certain country. What’s available to them. Jo: Right, and if it’s not just about the cultural experience of being in a country abroad, it’s also about that cheap experience Jo: Because, you know, surviving abroad means grocery shopping Damon: We’re also gonna get the Beef Pasties! Damon: Not in America! Jo: We’ll see you next time! Damon: Patterned Sandwich bags! Jo: That’s so cute! Everything sounds cuter here! Damon: Kerbside Catty Liners! Jo: Is that even English? Damon: They spell kerbside- look how they spell kerbside! Jo: With a K! Damon: And an E? Damon: And an R! Jo: You guys, don’t forget! Click on that sign! Click on the sign, we’ll see you in the next video! Damon: Bye!

Cute video guys. So, here's my story… When I visited London 10 years ago all by myself, I got really drunk one night and on the way back to my hotel I took a wrong turn and ended up at a huge Tesco supermarket.
I remember going in, eating some blueberries off the shelf (yes ?). Anyhow, I don't remember coming out or even getting to my hotel for that matter. I wake up, there's a Tesco bag next to me. Apparently I decided to buy a bag of chips, shaving foam (yeah wtf??) and a pack of blueberries. So I was clever enough to pay for the blueberries I ate at the supermarket. Fun times… ??

The way eggs are washed and processed in america require you to have to refrigerate them.
That process is illegal in the EU, and our process isn't legal in the US or so i've heard….

Btw it's an American credit card so your signature is all you've got, I guess?

You need a meal deal from TESCO, a Cornish pasty, some cider, and some chocolate ?

Ok I’m American but I know the reason eggs here are refrigerated from owning chickens myself. When the chicken lays an egg there is a thin film on the outside of the egg that as long as you don’t rinse the egg so the film goes away it doesn’t need to be refrigerated. We haven’t refrigerated our fresh eggs and they don’t go bad as long as the film isn’t rinsed off.

Eggs have a natural coating on them keeping the fresh. American eggs are washed, removing that coating making it necessary to refrigerate to keep from spoiling. The US is the only place that I know of that washes eggs.

The reason we don't refrigerate eggs is because they aren't washed before sale like they are in the US. The washing process can damage the shell making it easier for bacteria to get into the egg, therefore washed eggs need to be refrigerated to guarantee they're safe to eat. It's also the reason why eggs in the US are white, whereas over here they're their natural colour

Americans have to refrigerate their eggs because they don't vaccinate the chickens against salmonella, they also wash the eggs in America which takes away the thin protective layer around the egg, this means they need to be refrigerated, in the EU we vaccinate chickens against salmonella and don't wash the eggs so the natural protection is still there and the chances of salmonella are way lower than in America which is why we have no need for refrigerated eggs.
