'British-obsessed' Aussie woman points out difference in supermarket

‘British-obsessed’ Aussie woman points out the bizarre items she found while shopping in an English supermarket for the first time: ‘Why would you microwave a single slice of toast?’

  • Aussie comedian Georgia Jean McCudden, 22, is currently in England
  • Describing herself as ‘British obsessed’ the young woman posted a video there
  • It showed her wandering around a series of supermarkets to buy groceries
  • She noted a number of stark differences between the grocers there and at home 

A ‘British obsessed’ Australian woman has visited an English supermarket for the first time and pointed out some of the very unique differences in how the two nations shop. 

Comedian Georgia Jean McCudden, 22, jetted to Bath, the largest city in the county of Somerset, England, with her boyfriend Sam in tow to enjoy a relaxing European summer.

While visiting the city Georgia made sure to stop by a local Waitrose and Marks and Spencer to get a taste for how the Brits purchase their groceries – and voiced a number of surprises along the way in a recent TikTok video.

‘I’m Australian and I’ve never been to a British supermarket before so these were my honest thoughts. So I started by looking at the juice and I thought “what in the hell is this Truman s***?’ She started, pointing out that the plastic containers of juice in M&S were filled with paper.

Chocolate and orange do not go together. I said what I said.

They were mock ups of what customers could buy if they visited the cafe in the centre of the store but it confused Georgia nonetheless.

‘Something I found in M&S was that 90 per cent of the chilled section was ready made meals. The UK just understands that most families have both parents making the income,’ she continued.

‘Honestly the quality and convenience is a 10/10.’

However she did spot a single piece of packaged cold toast in the freezer section and pointed out how wasteful that appeared to be, given how easy it is to use a toaster.

‘I know humanity loves their convenience but at the end of the day why would you microwave a single piece of toast?’ She questioned.

Georgia was also not a fan of the many assorted ‘chocolate and orange’ flavouring combinations in the sweets section.

‘That’s just like eating a cucumber and ice cream. Like you could do it but why would you want to?’ She said.

In Waitrose Georgia noted that there were special personal scanning devices so you could seamlessly checkout while you shop through the store.

‘Honestly genius, Australia get onto it,’ she said.

‘Inside Waitrose they had cooking classes, a cafe and you can buy alcohol too. Australians are like kids who don’t like their food touching… like you have to go to three different places to do all that.’

Georgia and Sam ended up purchasing a packaged ravioli pasta for dinner before leaving the shop.

Many of her followers pointed out how expensive Waitrose and M&S are in comparison to Asda and Tesco supermarkets.

‘Found it so weird when I first moved here that you can get clothes, alcohol and food all in the same place,’ a fellow Australian follower commented.

‘I’m British myself and yet the orange and chocolate doesn’t make sense to me either,’ said another.

A third added: ‘Nah but how is amazing is M&S… if I could bring anything from the UK, it would be marksies’.
