The things I buy most often at Amazon are books, music, DVDs, and ramen noodles (seriously!)

Things I buy most on Amazon:
  • Energy gels/blocks (to use when cycling)
  • Twiglets (when they have them)
  • Music

in that order.

You can buy almost anything on there though, so if there's something you are thinking of buying in general it's worth a look to see if they have it.

That's the problem, I have a big wish list. Twiglet's are on my list.

Gonna look at Energy Gels though as I don't know what they are!

I was looking for Ramen noodles so I could try and re-create a pot noodle!


By the way I just noticed the title "Send" should be spend, obviously.

I have started buying these ones now rather than the gels, easier to eat while riding: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ef=oss_product

I buy my ramen noodles at Amazon because they carry the brand "Ichiban", which are the BEST, in my opinion. My local stores don't carry that brand anymore.

By the way I just noticed the title "Send" should be spend, obviously.
Darn...I thought you were going to send it to one of us lucky people helping you decide.

They are the second most purchased item on Amazon in European Foods.

I've not found an American bean that compares to Heinz, but then again, I've not had many American beans seen as the sell both Heinz and Batchelors at my local store.

+1

I'm also fascinated with the British obsession with pot noodles. That's not even real food. It's like the whole country chose to stay on war rations after WW2.
