A, B, C, Vitamin D

I love going to foreign supermarkets. It's a strange, childish obsession, but I like to see what's the same and what's different, what cartoon characters adorn the breakfast cereal, the strange and exotic flavours of chocolate and the many types of alcohol. Needless to say, I almost exploded with delight when I got to visit a Wal-Mart last year.

So I made a point of visiting the Arques branch of Intermarché, which carries the added bonus of having a musketeer logo, and bought a pack of raspberry BNs - a large, square sandwich biscuit of which I'm very fond.

Glancing at the pack just now, I noticed that the biccies contain not only vitamins E and B1, but PP.

Trust the French to have a Vitamin Pi-pi.
