I did panic-buying like 2.5 weeks ago to avoid the peak.

No. I refuse to panic buy.
There is enough to go round if people were only to be sensible.

Chocolate is one of the in demand items as well as beer.
Its all fascinating from a human observation view.

Yes, psychologists must be having a field day. It's bringing out the best and worst in us and some of our behaviour is far from rational but somehow makes us feel better

They're fresh, but a little too chewy for me.

Supermarkets ive seen, then 80% of it was gone. Might just be a restock needed.
Its just interesting to see what people go for.
The paracetamol went within 2 days, with loads of ibuprofen left. Also the price of paracetamol has apparently risen.
Fortunately for the UK the underlying food stocks are fine and its just filling the shelves.

I have been trying to buy about two weeks worth of supplies over the last few days, I have had to go to every supermarket and spa in the region, which is handy as my daughter tested 38.3 oC this morning, so I'm not going out for the next two weeks.

Handy as I doubt I'll be able to get anyone to deliver anything anytime soon.

I wasn't panic buying, but it certainly could have looked like it.
