    - as I just found Oatbran in sale in a london branch of Holland and Barrett for the first time in months.

    (I never actually ran out, as I was still able to buy it in Waitrose in Hexham whenever I caught the train there)

    Was there a shortage? My local Tesco, Asda and Morrisons have always had it in.

    One of these days a checkout assistant is going to ask me if I'm doing Dukan as I pile on my oatbran, quark, eggs, meat etc onto the conveyor belt ;)

    In the days immediately after the Daily Mail ran their "Dukan for holidays" series oatbran disappeared from every retail outlet I checked:

    That is -
    1 large Tescos
    3 large Waitrose in London
    5 branches of Holland and Barrett

    It wasn't a shortage, per se - just the sudden demand outstripping the normal supply.

    OMG! Total nervous break down in the aisle if that happened to me.

    I once found only one little pot left on the shelf, and that was terrifying enough!
