I'm fond of high-juice, low sugar squashes, and would take them over fruit juices any day -- there are some good orange ones. That's blue bin; but then, so is a most of the plastic packaging nowadays...

Oh, oh! You could take your own container to the fancy pasta place in the covered market, and thereby get non-plastic-wrapped (and also overpriced (and admittedly delicious)) pasta.

motodraconis takes boiled jam jars to the fishmonger -- a big enough jar would probably do for quite a lot of the things that must not contaminate (or be contaminated by) other things.

But I'm afraid that I must admit to being emotionally quite wrapped in plastic, as it were.

Ah, rather you than me, "low sugar" usually means "bucketloads of aspartame" and I can't stand the stuff. :-/

Which is the fancy pasta place? I can't keep track of the covered market, I'm sure the shops actually move around when we're not looking...

I note this stuff looks nice, no artificial sweeteners and comes in a glass bottle - but of course you'd need to find somewhere that stocks it, and you're right, it's not a low sugar one.

That's the exact one! I'd have got it from Sainsburys or Tescos, nowhere exotic.

The fancy ones that come in glass bottles don't tend to include aspartame (or be labelled low sugar, for that matter, they just taste less sickly-sweet -- wait, no, the reason I know about their low sugar content is that I successfully grew mould in the end of a bottle of this http://www.ocado.com/webshop/product/Bottlegreen-Blossom-Cottage-Morello-Cherry-Cordial/42086011?from=search&tags¶m=cordial&parentContainer=SEARCHcordial_SHELFVIEW last summer (which I'd also recommend, by the way)

Oh, and the fancy pasta place is the little Italian sandwich shop opposite the cake shop, next to the florist. Taylors bought it out and it lost the amazing antipasti selection, but last I saw it still had the fresh pasta

Ah so it is the same one as the Taylors one (Owen thought it was but neither of us were sure). Yes, their pasta is jolly nice and comes in cardboard boxes (and I guess they might be willing to put it in a reusable thing if I asked?).
