Supermarket products

I have searched and think no similar topic has been discussed here to this date.

I'd be interesting of hearing about which supermarket-available products you find good enough.

I'm speaking about basic cooking products as well as prepared and ready to eat items.

That's a long list. I regularly shop at Carrefour, to my satisfaction. Monoprix also has a lot of gret stuff. Here's a first list:

- Bernard Loiseau dishes

- Rana fresh pasta

- Monoprix Gourmet andouillette

- Petit pot au chocolat carrefour

- Organic cereals and oils Carrefour bio

- Agneau de lait Carrefour agir (really good)

- Lait de Montagne Carrefour

- Beurre bio Carrefour

- Pain bio Carrefour

Acting on a tip from a friend, I tried some of the bio products at ED. The organic colza oil is quite good, the Mexican-Peruvian coffee is not. I use their cream cheese, since I often need four bricks or more for a cheesecake, and buying the Philadelphia elsewhere would drive me to the poorhouse.

Franprix sells Illy coffee pods for a fraction of the price elsewhere. I used to assume they were mismarked but at around €5 per tin, they're a great deal.

Someone served me the cocktail almonds from Monoprix, which are similar (or actually are) Spanish Marcona almonds, and were fabulous.

David: were the almonds Monoprix's own brand?

Yes, they were. I think they came in a green foil bag, but I'm not 100% positive since someone was serving them to be at the same time as an apéritif. I guess I need to go for myself and check 'em out.
