where worcestershire souce gone?
 
Hi there,

probably for more than couple of months can't find worchestershire souce in the shops. In every shop I checked only price tag left and empty shelf :) In France - the same. What happened? :msnshock:

Hmm… Leicester... but where the c is followed by a h, then it is Manchester?

I thought there was a slight R sound, Wurster.

And when talking about the sauce, the ‘shire’ is always silent.

Godmanchester = Gumster
English isn't as easy to learn as some people think.

Not in Coop? I've always found it there or at Manor Foods

Re: where worcestershire souce gone?
 
I'm not aware of an 'r' sound in "wuster". Perhaps west-country dialect?

So does Migros: https://www.leshop.ch/de/search(smt:...stershiresauce
Edit: Or actually does not. Once you put it in the basket it says there are none left.

At Coop you can search for availability at the store:

And Bicester is bister, and towcester is toaster. But Alnwick is "annick" and "Bathwick Hill" is "Bath-wick Hill".

Definitly there is, and I'm from Yorkshire.

I was looking in manor, coop, carrefour etc (not migros however) and couldn't find it. Nice feature from Coop website. Now I'll target exact shop. Probably some leftovers hidden somewhere :)

I’m from Yorkshire too and there’s no ‘r’ sound in it where I’m from and not for my husband either and he’s from north London.
