do people buy this stuff?

do people *buy* this stuff?

I went to Asda – I hate it, but I needed some fizzy water and some shampoo, and some wafer thin meat for the cats.  I shouldn’t go round the aisles, really; it just makes me cross, and astonished.

I can understand people buying a cake – hell, I’ve done it myself.  I can understand people buying frozen Yorkshire puddings. I guess, although how hard is it to add an egg and some milk to flour and whisk it up?

But I don’t understand why people buy a mix and cook it – either buy the stuff ready to eat, or make it from scratch. I bet you could buy an Asda sponge cake for £1.98.  Perhaps it’s just me …
