I knew that Tesco had pulled out of their American adventure, but I'd become lulled by the fact that the stores themselves continued unchanged. Except that they no longer had the ginger lemon creme sandwich cookies, which, though not my favorite cookie overall, I find myself craving more as time goes by.
It just hadn't occurred to me that the contents of the shelves would change. Silly of me, I suppose.
Those were really good cookies, and now there's virtually no evidence that they ever existed -- a page listing calorie counts and a Facebook post praising them. Sic transit gloria mundi.
