I could cope with going "normcore" on my clothes - stick to plain t-shirts, jeans, keep it dead simple. I'm not exactly extravangantly-dressed as it is.
Iceland do sell fruit and veg but I couldn't limit my food purchases to them. That'd mean no takeaways, no meals out, no nice bits and bobs from Asian supermarkets, no convenience food, just 50ish years of culinary misery.
dress indefinitely in an acceptable fashion.
There are insufficient items of food in Iceland to eat indefinitely in an acceptable fashion.
going through Iceland's shit-awful frozen sandwiches and the like rather than Tesco's clothes. Which I have nothing against, at all.
Plus, Iceland sells fruit and veg and tinned stuff.
and dinner time ticked round you would have to slope off and get a tin of breakfast in a can and then find a heat source.
You're really missing out.
Just aren't any round here and don't remember there being one near university.
There's a few near me. Never really go in them, though. They are dead cheap for branded stuff, I'll give them that.
You already do both.
not really a fan of frozen stuff. (bit of a food twat)
for a trip but I wouldn't want to tell anyone because of all the shop lols
Does he work for iceland tourist board?
after that it's all indie berks banging on about what a great place it is.
Just get the frozen meat and veg and make actual meals out of them. Actually, fuck that, I can just wear Tesco clothes. I only wear jeans and t-shirts anyway.
Tesco are probably more likely to get better at clothes, they might get some decent brands in or whatever.
Iceland food will always be shit and it'll probably kill you after a few months.
(do they still exist)
Clarifying the statement.
They also do unfrozen veg (although I'm sure it's not the best quality).
So feel free to buy it no matter your decision
your clothes are coming from Iceland and your food from Esso.
My grandparents used to buy all their food from Iceland. They thought that food, like friends or relatives, was a waste of money. (The main things they liked to spend money on were elaborate stereos that let you copy tapes to minidisc, and china shepherdess figurines from the back of the newspaper). My parents used to take us to eat beforehand at the Little Chef on the motorway junction, because that was better than the half-plate of Iceland bulk-buy stuff my nan would feed visitors. They also used to hide the chocolate biscuits, in case you might eat more than one, and would bring out the value digestives. Hosts with the most.
Or Tesco stopped doing clothes? You would be fucked. I would go Tesco therefore as at least clothes last longer than frozen dinners.
