The Rosetta receipt

Tidying out my wallet last night, I found a long receipt from my last visit to Tesco. Curious things, receipts, when you study them.  I bought two bottles of Robinson's Fruit and Barley squash, which happened to be on BOGOF. Mysteriously, one is listed on the receipt as 'summer fruit barley', while the other is  simply 'squash'. Different flavours, but otherwise the same product.
  Likewise, of the four yoghurts, all by the same manufacturer, the two Black Cherry ones are listed by brand, while the two vanilla ones are listed by flavour. 

At least till receipts are a lot easier to make sense of these days. A few years ago, items were listed in  deranged abbreviations that were impossible to understand even if you had the actual items on the table in front of you. The only thing I can't figure out on this receipt is ISB SWT M/GDS.

It's the last part that flummoxes me. Once I'd ithought of M/GDS as 'mudguards' I couldn't think of anything else. And I'm sure I haven't bought any In-Store Bakery Sweet Mudguards.

That reminds me of that car advertisement I saw at my parents' where they made a whole car out of cake. :-)

I know the one - for 'a car made of lovely stuff'. It's an impressive bit of cake-making, and just think how many candles you could get on top.

My Rebel agent once got arrested by the ISB...

ISB SWT M/GDS
I've bought something called that before and it was a 2-pack of 'Maple & Pecan Plaits' or something. Delicious.
