Waitrose has written tasting notes for Special Brew because middle class people are ridiculous

There was once a time where if you were looking to do a posh Friday big shop you’d rock up to the swish gates of Marks and Sparks. Pimping out your trolley with an array of impossibly thin crisps, bizarre ‘sparkling’ drinks and Percy Pigs.
