Supermarket rush revealed: The five top-selling products in the run-up to Storm Emma
We came, we saw, we emptied the shops.
The five top-selling products amongst Irish shoppers in the run up to Storm Emma have been revealed - and it shows that we really are a nation who love our basic food and drink.
BWG Foods, which distributes goods to a number of national stores including Mace and Eurospar, surveyed more than 1,000 shops and the best-selling product was no surprise.
In first place, was Brennan’s Sliced Pan.
Hundreds of videos and pictures shared across social media showed the battle for the bread was a fierce one, genuinely looking like a scene from the Hunger Games in some stores.
In second place was a litre of milk, followed by eggs, firelighters, and of course, wine.
