What we all really want to know about avocados
Ok so this is a bit of a random post for me, but you know what, I think its a subject that touches most peoples hearts. Avocados. You heard correctly, this post is going to be completely about avocados.
Firstly, who doesn't like avocados now-a-days?! They pretty much go with any meal, they can be eaten at any time of the day and they are just so so yummy. As you can probably tell I am a massive fan and they are always in my weekly shop. But, one thing that I find bitterly disappointing about avocados is how much they can vary shop to shop - anyone have this problem too? #FirstWorldProblems
Now, this clearly is a problem. I don't want to have avocado problems, you know when they never soften or the stone is super hard to get out. We have all had them. So due to this, I thought that I would construct a hot-or-not list so that we NEVER have this problem again and you know what retailer to go to get that avocado fix! Genius!
So lets get to it, I know you all cant wait...
Sainsbury - 5 / 10 [££]
Obviously this hasn't got off to the best start, but the Sainsbury's avocado is just always so hit and miss. As one of the higher priced places to get an avocado, I always expect so much more, how am I supposed to mash it when it still isn't ripe after three weeks?
Aldi - 6 / 10 [£]
As the least expensive avocado retailer, Aldi are surprisingly a high contender for the best avocado. However, they are often sold out which is particularly heart breaking when you are in need of an avocado.
Tesco - 9 / 10 [££]
Wow wow wow. Tesco's know how to source an avocado. They manage to hit the nail on the head every single time. I don't think I have ever had a disappointing avocado - you know what,
fuck it, I'm giving them 10 / 10.
Waitrose - 2 / 10 [£££]
Absolutely shocking. And the most expensive! Every time I go to Waitrose, I think its going to have changed and every time I am tricked into buying a rubbish avocado. I may even go to the extent that they are not edible at times. Need I say more?
I hope you have enjoyed my guidance and advice on a subject which is so close to my heart as an avid avocado fan and regular avocado eater.
