[Ireland] My favorite goodies in Ireland我的愛爾蘭小天地-超市

Where is your happy place while you’re in a foreign country? For people who know me…yas-Supermarket! I am not exaggerating, but I can really stay at least 30 minutes inside a supermarket and still enjoy my shopping(and I visit at least 3 times a week).

After staying almost  3 months in Ireland,  I’d like to share the goodies I found in my happy place.

人在異鄉的時候你最喜歡去的地方是哪裡呢?我的小天地嗎…超市!不誇張,每次去超市待個30分鐘對我來說都不成問題(前提是我一個禮拜去的次數少說也一定有3次)

在愛爾蘭待了快3個月,今天要分享我這個老客戶在超市的口袋名單


These are the supermarkets where you can find the treats I recommend in Ireland.

你可以在以下這些超市找到我推薦的口袋名單

  1. Aldi
  2. Lidl
  3. SuperValu
  4. Marks & Spencer

Lidl and Aldi are the most budget friendly ones, Marks & Spencer will be the lady among the supermarkets.

Lidl和Aldi是愛爾蘭最平價的2大超市,而Marks&Spencer則是超市界的貴婦囉




Bon Appetit Brioche Loaf (Aldi) 

This product was suggested by a friend, and I can not thank her more for recommending me this amazing…sorry, it’s already in my mouth. 

There are 2 types, one is with chocolate chips and one is without, personally I will recommend the original one. Before eating, I will highly suggest you to put it in the toaster, you will know why~.  

Tips: Since this thing is really in great demand, it will be smarter to visit Aldi earlier in the day before they are sold out.

在朋友的推薦下嘗試了這款吐司,我對她的感激無法用言語表達

這款吐司有2種口味,一種是加了巧克力的另一種則是原味,我和其他幾位朋友都覺得原味最好吃。再吃之前我會強烈建議你先把它放進烤麵包機,你會知道原因的~

小撇步: 由於這款吐司真的很熱門,若是想買要早一點光臨Aldi喔

 

Del-Rivo Kids smoothie (Aldi) 

I know I’m not a kid, but sometimes their food just seems tastier(and cuter)…Normally I don’t buy beverages from supermarkets, not even juice, but this smoothie is another story.

They are 100% from pure fruits without additional sugar(since they are supposed to be served to kids I believe they will make sure they are natural and healthy), I bought it out of curiosity, and it tastes surprisingly amazing! The texture is thick like the smoothies which contains ice cream, the thing different is you can drink this without feeling guilty because they are all from natural ingredients!

我知道不是小孩子了,但是有時候他們的東西真的看起來比較好吃(也比較可愛)…我平常不會在超市買飲料,連果汁都不買,但這個果昔就另當別論了。

它是100%從水果淬取的不再額外添加糖(既然它是給小朋友的我相信他們會確保產品的天然與營養),其是買它是出於好奇,卻意外的好喝!它的質地跟那些加了冰淇淋的奶昔一樣濃,不同的是你可以安心的飲用因為他是天然水果製成的!

 

Apple Turnover(Lidl) 

I used to think that the only place that you should buy breads are in bakeries, but after visiting the supermarkets here, this concept is totally overturned. I used to not like apple pie like foods (thank you McDon*d’s), but this Apple turnover turned my mind over also. Are you curious how good it is? The day before my mom’s flight back to Taiwan, she ran into Lidl just to bring some more Apple Turnovers back with her.

我以前總覺得要買麵包就要去麵包店買,但光臨過這裡的超市以後完全推翻了這個想法。拜賣x勞所賜我以前蠻排斥蘋果派的,但是Lidl的蘋果派讓我開始用新的角度看待蘋果派這個點心。你們想知道它到底有多特別嗎,在我媽媽回台灣前一天她還特地跑一趟Lidl把蘋果派也一起打包回家




 

Muller Greek Style Lemon Yogurt (Supervalu) 

One of the snacks I love the most in Europe is Yogurt. People who had been to supermarket with me can find that the times I came out without yogurt in my hands can be counted in one hand. My ultimate goal is to try every flavor from every brand, and so far, I can tell you this is the best I have ever had in Ireland. I tried also the mango flavor from the same brand, but Lemon is the best.

The texture of this yogurt is between Greek style and the normal ones, instead of yogurt, I’ll say it is more like cream. The lemon flavor makes it tastes similar to Yakult. If you ask me what do I miss about Ireland, this is definitely on my list.

我在歐洲最喜歡的點心之一就是優格。有跟我去過超市的人應該會發現,我從超市出來手中沒有優格的次數用一隻手就數的出來。我的目標是希望我可以嚐遍各種品牌各式口味,而這款優格是我在愛爾蘭吃過最好吃的優格。同款我也試過芒果口味,但還是檸檬最好吃。

這個優格的質地介於希臘優格和普通優格之間,與其說是優格我覺得更像是鮮奶油的質地,再配上一點點養樂多味。如果你問我,我想念愛爾蘭的什麼,這個優格絕對在裡面。

 

Colin the Caterpillar (Marks&Spencer) 

As a vegetarian who loves gummy bear,it is always depressing to try vegetarian gummy bears but find them not chewy at all. To be honest, before I bought this gummy caterpillar I thought that it will be the same as other vegetarian ones(but I still bought it anyway), and it really surprises me that it tastes almost the same as the ones with gelatine! Only if you’re curios of how delighted I was, I went running around my flat with this treat in my hand telling everyone to give this veggie caterpillar a try!

身為一個愛吃小熊軟糖的素食者,每次買素食的軟糖都會很沮喪因為它們完全沒有嚼勁。其實我沒只是順手拿了這個結帳並沒有期望太多,但讓我驚訝的是它竟認吃起來跟普同含了明膠小熊軟糖幾乎一模一樣!當晚我開心的一直拿著它要我的室友們嘗試

 

Here are all the goodies I recommend from the supermarkets in Ireland, hope you enjoy them as I do and tell me also whats your favorite treat?
