The Best Grocery Store Snacks You Can Find in Britain — Grocery Snacks

When I first moved to the U.K. in 2005, I spent much of my time navigating store aisles, Googling ingredients, figuring out metric measurements, and taste-testing new products, especially of the snacking variety. That last bit was one of the best parts of expat life.

I love to make a big pot of applesauce after a day of apple picking — there's something just so satisfying about its simplicity. However, after a few days of eating it from a bowl, dusted with cinnamon, I tend to grow tired of the snack. Luckily, there is a whole lot more you can do with applesauce.
