The Shopping List Compendium:
a collection of abandoned shopping and grocery lists




208 - Cheesecake


Every so often a list comes along that lists specific recipe items. This one is almost definitely for some kind of cheesecake. The first four items would definitely be used in making a base, while the next three make a bit of cheesy-filling stuff.

However, it is the bottom few shopping items that I'm not so sure about. As someone who's not a fan of cheesecake per se, I'm not entirely 'up' on potential toppings, but the precision of these items suggests it's legitimate.

Does anybody have any ideas what flavour this is going to emerge as?

This site is made possible by the kind people who abandon their shopping list at the end of a trip to the supermarket. I collect those shopping lists. You might refer to these as grocery lists, which strikes me as a bit strange because not all the items on the lists are groceries. Anyhow, I won't worry myself about it if you won't.

For those of you who have asked why I do this, please just be content with the fact that I do. I saw a list lying abandoned in a trolley once, and thought, "I'll have that". So I did.

Each shopping list I find is added to my collection along with comments about each list, which usually consist of me spouting on about the possible personality of the person who wrote it. I'm quite harsh at times, at others I feel a pang of compassion. Sometimes I just don't know what items are. Hopefully it will aid your procrastination.
