Supermarket tourist

M & S in Amsterdam

My Fabulous Finds from the -So British!- Marks & Spencer concept store in Amsterdam

The taste of Britain is back in Amsterdam! It was my first visit to Marks and Spencer’s new concept store in the Kalverstraat and I am so happy now ūüėČ

The shop has an interesting e-boutique next to the entrance Рwhere you can buy clothes, by ordering online, in the shop, on which I should write more, later Рbut! M+S Amsterdam is mainly a food hall. Thankgod ;P

A dedicated supermarket tourist myself, it reminds me of the strolls through Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Tesco’s,¬†even Harvey Nichols’ food department (great package design!), as if getting¬†The Best of Britain¬†at Marks and Spencer. To me the products are like souvenirs of London and the British way of life, with it’s peculiar yet yummy taste.

The packaging is a gift on top, with beautiful persuasive language. This text for example is from the box of Chai teabags: “A carefully balanced blend of spices with black tea, inspired by the traditional street stall recipes of India”. Aaah… cuppaaaah!

Kalverstraat: 226, 1012 XJ Amsterdam (close to the Munt)

Definitely a hotspot on my map.
