Costco here sells it in quite large bottles (surprise surprise). I've never heard anyone on this forum worry about Worchestershire...usually it is Club or Penguin biscuits, some beer or a type of cheese or crisps.

Lea and Perrins Lime Cordial is also here. Sadly this one isn't

The joy of being here long enough, is that you just forget the things that you miss, I think. I will miss forever, I fear, a proper London sandwich shop that makes exactly what you ask for...corned beef with anchovies, mustard and tomatoes on whole wheat, never even raising an eyebrow...I would like to visit a Gregg's Bakery as well before this long tricks over...but that might just be an uncertain memory...it would be awful to be sadly disappointed

i still miss the stottie shop nearest the campus, and the ‘everything’ pizza in the Union bar. It’s best to just miss some things , unless they’re made of chocolate, in which case you should go to every effort to track them down.

Except coffee matchmakers

Completed an Instacart order last night from Walmart today. MIL wanted to "add a few things" and it tripled the cost But never mind, she's paying.

5 minutes after delivery I was giving the 5* rating and upping the tip to take account of the bigger shop than originally planned and I noticed a 'sales' category that I'd never seen before.

There was a pack of my razor cartridges of choice for a ridiculous price. Since the price might change tomorrow I had to get them. MIL naturally suggested a couple of other things, made a quick order and 34 minutes later delivery was taken.

You love the instacart

I bet you tip better than most in Vancouver too, our average tip last week was $2.87, of course we only got 11 batches all week so not a huge amount. Batches have been in short supply since majority of shoppers appear to have started to go shopping again rather than use instacart.

Doesn't help IC will choose stores way too far from the delivery address (IC chooses the actual store location) no IC, I am not driving 12km to the store, to drive 12km back for $10 and no tip, stupid thing is to get to the location on some of these batches you pass other locations of the chain your going to...weird system they have sometimes, pass a Wal-Mart to go to another Wal-Mart only to pass the first Wal-Mart to do the delivery.
