TIFOoPiaS Part 1, Items 1-9

Welcome to Things I Found Out of Place in a Supermarket!

So, after some searching, I found my first photo that I thought lost! This was taken in Lidl, Yoker (that’s in Glasgow), the picture is of an empty Pepsi Max can sitting on top of a stack of paper towels. I think this is actually a case of ‘rubbish left on an unrelated shelf’. This is mainly because the item arrangement in a Lidl is so haphazard, it’s difficult to determine whether an item has been left on the wrong shelf or if it’s just a victim of their poor shelf layout.

Now we move to Sainsbury; they’ve opened a new mini-Sainsbury in Glasgow city centre, and it provided a couple of photo opportunities. We’ve got sushi on top of Bernard Matthew’s turkey breast:

Next, a bottle of salad cream next to, surprisingly, some salad. It’s not often that the misplaced items have anything to do with their unsuspecting new neighbours.

And now to a Tesco Metro in Glasgow city centre. Plenty to be found here. For example, these toy cars from the film Cars seem to be getting everywhere, even onto the biscuit shelf! I’m pretty sure there should be Digestives there.

Here’s his pal, and he’s kidnapped a helpless lettuce and gone to hide out in the bread section!

Somebody’s put some WeightWatchers bread down next to packs and packs of chocolate. They’re either really quite mean, or they’ve just fallen off the wagon.

I give a pass to the reduced shelf, as it usually has a whole mess of different products sharing space, but this reduced pack of ham is sitting among clearly-not-reduced dog food tins.

I also found a pack of shortbread fingers next to the Dairylea Dunkers. I can see the logic here. Finger-shaped food, I get it. Dunking shortbread is just asking for a crumb-filled cup of tea, though.

And finally (for today, still got 91 to go!), a bag of Rowntrees ‘Very Berry Jellies’ sweets, sitting happily in the bananas. Yes, they taste like fruit. No, they are not one of your five-a-day.

And there you have it, my first nine items Found Out of Place in a Supermarket! Many more to come 🙂
