I can't think of anything apart from basmati rice. I have other types so not a major issue.

Not more of anything but certainly less, having stocked up on family packs of fun size Mars Bars, Snickers etc. let’s just say, I’ve been having a bit too much ‘fun’ and will be avoiding my scales for a while.......

Asda and the local Coop have run out of flour. I usually get my elastic at the local market which is closed. We are socially isolating .

There are still a few empty shelves in the Supermarkets here, but most things are now available between the local shops and online. If I cant get it in one shop, then next time I go out, will try another shop.

I normally have an emergency supply of canned food, dried milk, water purifier etc because of the earthquake risk here. I keep it in my pantry so that it gets rotated and not wasted.
Unfortunately I was in America for two months and only returned home at the start of lockdown. My partner proudly announced that he had hardly needed to shop whilst I was away and we were down to a tin of sardines and one of canned peaches......

Neither. Custard is for rhubarb crumble. Plenty growing in my garden

There's nothing really that I would have bought more of. I keep a fairly good supply of most things and when I am onto the last, I get more. I've not run out of anything and the initial shortages didn't affect me. When I was needing to get more things, they were back on the shelves.
