Mine typically contains bananas, milk, porridge oats, mixed nuts, orange juice, wholemeal bread, cheese, potatoes and perhaps some mince or salmon.

Air.

Sure, there might be a gallon of milk or some cookies and cheese. But mostly it’s air.

I sit inside as my butler pushes me around the aisles, he reaches up to the higher shelves while I grab the stuff lower down.
We get awfully funny looks when we rock up to the checkout, but I just tell everyone i’m his carer & it gives him something to do.

I learned another definition of “trolley” today.

YARNLADY's avatar

I always called it a cart, or basket, never trolley. We buy bread, milk, bananas and apples every week, and otherwise a wide variety of foods.

flutherother's avatar

I didn’t realise a supermarket trolley is called a cart in the US. A basket in the UK is different, it doesn’t have wheels and you carry it around by hand.

Dutchess_III's avatar

You’re also from the USA @YARNLADY. “Trolly” is going to be Great Britian. Like “Boot” for a car trunk and that kind of stuff.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I’ve always called it a “basket,” even though you don’t carry it.

@flutherother: _“I didn’t realise a supermarket trolley is called a cart in the US.”

It’s probably regional here. A thing with wheels that you push around while shopping is most often referred to as a shopping cart in my area.

For further edification on what shopping carts/trolleys are called in different places, I will add that here in Hawaii we call them wagons.

I buy milk and a certain kind of salad from the deli weekly. I also buy salsa by the bucket. I eat a lot of it.

I buy other things regularly buy not weekly. Those are peanuts, pasta, pasta sauce, green salad, other fresh veggies, apples, bananas, other fruit in season, cookies, mixed nuts, and more.

I call them “racing cages”

Dutchess_III's avatar

When they were little my kids called them roller coaster jungle gyms.

ucme's avatar

The ones with the wonky wheels which always wanna go the opposite direction you want them to are the work of the demon king.

hmmmmmm's avatar

Not to derail, but if you put your foot on the bottom bar that most shopping carts have, you can kick yourself across the parking lot and pick up a ton of speed. It’s more fun than it should be, but a must.

FedEx brings mine. I have an order coming tomorrow.
I ordered my candy for Halloween. I decided to give out full size Snickers this year. Last year I didn’t have one single visitor.
I’m anxious to see their reactions.

Cat food – crunchy and soft
Cheese
Dark chocolate
Mushrooms
Spring mix or spring mix with spinach
Fruit – I try to stay seasonal, so it’s apples right now
