The supermarkets in Hong Kong have occasional product sales, but not to the extent that we do in Australia. I love finding an item marked down like yoghurt or this small block of precious cheese I scored last month.
By far, my favourite section of the supermarket is the Specials Trolley. Between the breakfast cereal aisle and the soft drinks is a treasure trove of bargains. Some of the items in the Specials Trolley are admittedly approaching their best before date. Other products have damaged packaging or are just not selling as fast as the manager expected. You never know what you will find in the Specials Trolley; that's part of it's appeal.
Last month we hit the jackpot. The Specials Trolley was FULL of chips and lollies and chocolate. Needless to say, we came home with an embarassing amount of junk food.
C'mon, Geoff, tell me how many Cadbury bars you would have bought for 50 cents AUD each?
