    Hi All,

    I started Atkins a week on monday (lost 8lb yayy) and have lurked on here reading all your great posts.

    The mim's and bread have really caught my attention so off I went to Tesco today to buy some, couldn't find it anywhere and believe me I scoured everywhere! The staff said they'd never heard of it.

    Being determind to try these brill recipes I then went to Asda and Morrisons with exactly the same outcome! AHHH I'm desperate to get some and have come home defeated and with a much lighter purse! (I cant go into a supermarket without coming out with things I had no intention of buying)

    Any suggestions as to where abouts it is located in supermarkets?? Failing that, its a trip to a health food store me thinks.

    Jim, if thats the isle I think it is I tried there (love the name!), maybe my Tesco has stopped stocking it then. I'll have another mooch the next time I'm there tho so thanks for that.

    I forgot about Sainsburys or I'd have gone there too! Think I've done about a 15 mile round trip today looking for it. Thanks for the heads up ladies I'll pop there tomorrow.
