This article applies to South Africans because of the products I’m talking about. ESPECIALLY since Woolworths in England has closed up shop (last I heard) after 99 years of business.
At the bottom of this post I tell you of 2 Woolworths Foods products that you HAVE to try. If you do, let me know if you agree with me…
What are your favourite foods from Woolworths? Do you even shop at Woolworths?
There are a few options here in SA:
Pick n Pay
They’re upping their game to cater for all the people who think that Woolworths is getting too expensive. As well as being something of an upmarket store in the townships.
My wife and I try to avoid the Spar (except for BroadAcres) because 90% of the time we’ve gone there, there’s something wrong with the fruit and veg.
For example, the last time we went (IN SANDTON, of all places) there was hectic fungus growing on some vegetables, which had expired 6 days before!!!
My wife and I tend to shop at Woolworths for 95% of our groceries. It may be a little more expensive (though I’m not sure, because some of the things we buy are only available at Woolworths), but the quality tends to be a lot better.
IF they have stock!
My favourite foods
So, the point of this article. There are 2 things that I recommend that EVERYBODY go try out:
Woolworths sells a roast chicken, marinaded and packed in plastic.
You cook this chicken for about 1 to 1.5 hours in the oven, IN the bag (with 2 small incisions in the plastic bag). After it’s been cooking long enough that it’s ready, we take off the plastic, and turn on the grill in the oven for about 5 minutes to make the skin crispy.
It is REALLY tasty, and thanks to the bag which has kept the juices in, it’s not dried out at all.
And if I can cook, it, ANYBODY can cook it.
Full Cream Ayreshire Coconut Yogurt
Everybody knows yogurt’s healthy, right? Ok, maybe not the full cream yogurt, but it’s healthier than cake I hope.
Next time you go to Woolworths, look out for the yogurts in the black tubs. There are various flavours like Lemon Cream, Vanilla and Coconut.
My personal favourite is the coconut yogurt. It is SO good, my wife and I buy it for desert.
Try it and see if you don’t agree with me. You’ll stop buying biscuits and cakes and puddings for a while.
