….Shoppers to Buy

"Due to the coronavirus pandemic people have been stocking up on food so that, in case of quarantine, they do not need to leave their homes and go to grocery stores.

Due to the pandemic, people are advised to stay at home, but since people need food, they still have to go to the store. Have a look at the just in case food carts from around the globe in our photo gallery…"

Most of those photos look like pretty standard, pre-panic supermarket shopping loads. Luckily I have access to good drinking water so I don't need to buy bottled water but some places you do.

There are plenty of organizations trying to trigger panic buying of their products, specially if they have a limited storage life – the latest I saw was the brewing industry, threatening to close the breweries if people didn't keep buying beer – a lot of commercial canned or bottled beer is loaded with 'preservatives' that break down after several weeks making the beer taste 'off', so a potential win for the breweries there.

A lot of fresh in there. I was expecting more canned, dry goods, and hoards of spices. It looks more like prepping for a long week of extended family holiday visiting.

Seriously, spices make staples expand in variety. You don't even need to bring the heat. Onion, Garlic, Sage, and Basil'n'Organo (one thing, there) are pretty standard dry spices, but make baked beans not baked beans. Four onsies, six twosies, and four threesies plus all four and non give you sixteen reasonably distinct combinations.
