Show me the Tempeh!!
My trip yesterday to Intu’s Merry Hill shopping centre just outside Dudley began with dismay. As I made my way to the Holland & Barrett store I found it replaced by a gadget shop (which almost made my disappointment better instantly). I wasn’t going to give up my hunt for Tempeh that easily and taking the next corner I was suddenly bathed in the light of a brand-spanking, expanded Holland & Barrett store!
Skipping – ok, walking quickly – through the double doors I bee-lined for the refrigerated section and could already see the VBites label winking at me from numerous packages – but not one was a tempeh treat! No matter how much I pressed my nose against the fridge glass and hoped there was no soybean salvation! A shop assistant was unable to tell me whether tempeh will be stocked in the near future even though the older/smaller shop did have it…?
I settled for two bottles of Co-enzyme Q10 to help me with my statin intake (yippee) and a £29 bill!!
I think it’s great that health food shops are on the up and up but I won’t be satisfied until tempeh has it’s proper place in them. Come on H&B get your act together!
