Buying that pot of Israeli houmus in Tesco – an expensive act of solidarity

The twice monthly Tesco shop took place yesterday with myself and young Jaya once again whizzing around the Wrexham store.  Lots of cat food for the cats, grapes and strawberries for Joshua, biscuits for Jaya, pasta sauces and pork joints for the Mrs. and stacks of kale, chickpeas, blueberries, kippers, tuna and houmus for me as I continue my alcohol, sugars and carb free diet to tackle the diabetes. The fridge is bursting with curly kale which is meant to be a superfood.

At the part of the store selling houmus I bought four of the cheap own label pots at 89p – a saving of 101p on the price in the village store. But then on the top shelf looking forlorn was some Sabra houmus, a bigger pot but £2.25.  The name rang a bell and it was indeed from Israel.  In a town where Plaid Cymru lead the weekly calls to boycott the wicked Jews I am surprised that the stuff is still on sale at all.  In solidarity I bought a pot. Every little helps.
