    Pauper food: tesco custard donuts, 1.1kg bacon for a fiver, turkey burgers, supernoodles, sardines and instant mash.
    Prince food: tropicana orange and mango juice (that stuff's expensive 2 pound for a litre of the stuff when I can get gallon of normal orange juice for the same price in iceland), gammon, chicago town stuffed crust pizza. Oh yeah and the holy grail of prince foods are http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?imgur...1t:429,r:4,s:0

    I could eat porridge all day- breakfast, lunch and dinner and it works out ridiculously cheap as well!

    Crusty bread and brie! It's just the nicest thing ever.

    Obviously, carbohydrates are my favourite food group.

    Do you ALWAYS buy these? Your wallet must be bulging espada!
    not "buy" per se, more like go to a restaurant once a week that happens to serve one of the "prince" foods, the rest of the time i thrive on pasta pesto and cereal....everyday....just for that one moment of foodgasm during the weekends

    They don't do the same ranges in every shop, which really upsets me. Sainsburys at home has loads more basics stuff than the one at uni, which doesn't make sense - you'd have though a uni town store would have more basics!

    That really sucks I wonder if they taste the same or similar to the Lindt ones. If they do, I'd so stock up on them!

    Another Prince and Pauper:

    PRINCE:



    The problem is, I buy it in cans, and have no idea why I prefer it as such. Thankfully a local freezer shop has started selling loose cans at 4 for £1, bargainous, but otherwise, a pocket-raper.

    PAUPER



    16 of these things are 80p in Tesco, and this is a better brand; I will often plump for the "oh god, it's even more economy - how is that even possible?!" branded ones too!

    They weren't Birds Eye Scampers were they? They were shaped to look like scampi but were actually more like formed fish and potato, like mini fishcake curls?

    Like the filling you used to get in these:

    PAUPER: OSPREY TUNA

    3-pack of these tins of tuna for a quid. It's "minced tuna flakes", and clearly not the best of meat, but hell, it tastes fine to me, and I'm common as muck! Bring it on!

    PRINCE:

    IRN BRU



    I gladly pay extra for the glass bottles. It makes no sense but glass bottle Irn Bru tastes 100x better.

    Lobster - it's like £10 for one Ben & Jerry's and any decent brand of mature cheddar.

    Pauper: 'Eastman's cinema style popcorn' from Tesco's, like 88p for a massive bag, for the same amount of popcorn you'd end up paying £3-4+ in a cinema for the exact same taste. It's amazing, nomnomnom!
