Eh like...never. What are sprout toppings? As far as i can see sprouts are the tops of the plant!
But along the same we always used to be able to buy lambs liver and lambs hearts from our local Sainsburys but not now for quite a few years. And fresh fish is a joke it's been frozen then thawed (I think) and it costs way more than the frozen stuff.
(Remark...looks like another thread about a boring subject that could develop here on AO.
And yes supermarkets are about the only place where you actually meet people...quite enjoy them, including when I'm working at different places getting my sarnies from Safeways and Tesco and walking round the stores to see how they differ.
