Weird. I think Pentland Ferries get their s/w from the Post Office's suppliers.
Likewise Asda, I think.
I wanted a rosé wine box and they didn't have any, so I did a search for
"white wine box" and I was offered 3 choices. One was a Sauvignon, one
a Chenin and one was just called White Wine and came from one of the
South American countries. Not being a con-osser of white wines I rang
my sister for advice and sat for a while with the 3 offers showing on
screen while we discussed, and then I selected the White Wine.
It was only after the delivery driver had departed that I noticed that I
had been given the Red Wine version of the same brand as the White Wine.
I then checked my order and it did indeed include Red Wine. There's
no way I would have searched for or deliberately seleced red wine, but
there was no chance for error with only the 3 white wines being shown on
I can only assume a glitch in Asda's system which connected a click on
"White Wine" with their code for "Red Wine."
I e-mailed Asda to explain and complain but I got no response. So what
with all that plus no Sharwood's Mango Chutney, I 'm very dis-chuffed.
I feel for you. At least you hadn't selected the red whereas I have
only myself to blame.
I was shopping at Asda pre-Christmas (a 2am excursion to the 24hr
store so I wouldn't have to breathe other people's Coronavirus
particles) and I decided it would be nice to have a wine box in the
kitchen and just help myself now and again whilst cooking.
I wanted a red. The wine boxes that promised a specific variety were
ludicrously over-priced in my opinion. Then there was the box that
just said "Red Wine." It wasn't cheap either so how bad could it be?
The answer is: very bad indeed.
Many litres of highly spiced, mulled wine and an interminable number
of cooking sauces later I finally finished it off. Won't do that
And again, and again
