    These pictures just beg for a “caption this” contest.

    1. No, Minister, peanut butter and mayonnaise cannot be considered ‘essential’ food supplies, even in Bermuda
    2. Of course they can. This my families favourite – Bermudas Best mayonnaise. It’s the bestest
    3. We could sell this to cabinet if you could import condensed titty milk in cans.
    4. I like to buy my peanut butter in jars ‘this big’.

    Scrapping the sugar tax would be a good start.

    Mayonaise is a staple.

    The fact is there is no competition
    There would be if Lindos opened
    Sundays and later than 8pm like
    stores in rest of developed world but
    Bermuda for some reason is special…
    So we have marketplace owned
    by a tired uninspired group of folk who
    clearly make more than enough off the business
    Super-mart which does well with the well heeled
    Miles …ditto
    Arnold’s is essentially booze and convenience
    And Lindos for rest of us … when it’s open
    Not a one of them offers reasonable
    deals … all we get is ‘spacials’ …ie stuff
    about to go off so its discounted
    bongo deals, never heard of that here sadly
    Marketplace hasnt renovated or redesigned
    in centuries … the stores are so
    depressing and icky it’s torture to go thru them
    Lindos is a mess as it’s always so busy
    I have t even started on prices
    But one thing working against our
    governments efforts is sales at
    grocery stores are way down… shelves are emptier,
    less people clearly shopping f
    so dont expect them to come to the table with any relief anytime soon

    Why are the prices of items different in all the marketplaces??? Some places are more expensive than others. Why is that?

    One thing Government could do is remove that ridiculous “Sugar tax” which is such a sham. Just another way for this Government to make money. Because, let’s be real, it is certainly is not about OUR health.
