Bar code choice

I now check the bar code of products I'm considering buying. I avoid those starting 779.
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Re: Bar code choice

Considering the Argentines have had £450million from us in financial aid (for whatever reason I don't know why our government would do that) while we're all paying the price I honestly don't blame you.

Grew my own last year. Quite successful, grew as big as the shop bought ones, outdoors no fuss.
