If there is one truth that we know today to be true – it's that supermarkets are going to be JAMMERS over the next 48 hours. Indeed, today, Friday December 23, is anticipated to be the busiest shopping day of the year.
Because it just wouldn't be Christmas without a serious last minute panic around the grocery aisles.
And now the nation's Top Ten last-minute purchases have been revealed – as sold in Tesco Ireland stores nationwide on Christmas Eve in 2015.
Unsurprisingly, the likes of milk, cream and fresh bread are all high-priority for Irish shoppers:
1. Fresh milk
2. Fresh cream
3. White bread
4. Cola soft drinks
5. Fruit flavour soft drinks
7. Crisps in a tube
8. Lemons and limes
9. Big bag crisps and snacks
10. Brussels sprouts
Bacon makes its roaring debut in at No.6 having not featured at all in 2014. And the appearance of Brussels sprouts at No.10 is a smidgen controversial given the vegetable's rather mixed reputation. Still, Tesco expects to sell more than 2million sprouts TODAY ALONE – adding to the 6.5million sold in the last week.
