    At WW classes I hear how good the Pound shops are for WW food!
    So yesterday I went to the one in Woking!
    OMG I was like a kid at Christmas or a child trying to choose what sweets to have in a 10p mix up!!:D:D
    I came home with biscuits and snacks galore, I nearly even bought the hot choc (I don't even drink instant hot choc! lol).
    Think I've got enough to feed an army.
    The ginger cookies are lovely and yet again it brings home to me that I shouldn't be this big ~ opening a pack to have with a drink Number 2 says "ooohh food!" nah says me it's WW
    "That's ok it's still food" ~ taking the 2nd biscuit from my hand!!:sigh:
    It's not fair I'm this big I never get to finish anything!!!:cry:

    Yep I kept to bisuits and crisps, but have donated the WW cheese puffs to the household box (Himself eats ANYTHING!), as they weren't very nice.

    I would definitely spend the extra pp on the real thing! Have to say the roast chicken crisps are lush! (bit salty but very nice!)

    My pound shop doesn't have much of a range. They have some crisps, soups and crackers. That's it :(

    I had no idea pound shops did food. I am not sure where my nearest one is and Woking is a little far to go for food! I think there is one in Bracknell which is near. it might be a 99p one though?

    I shall investigate!
