Sainsbury’s Shopper is crowned the number one buyer of peppers in the North East with five jars

A spice lover has been crowned the top buyer of peppers in the North East despite buying just five 95p jars.

Paul Anthony Jones, 39, has been named top pepper buyer of 2022 in Sainsbury’s and Nectar’s annual review.

The supermarket sent him a message letting him know about the award, telling him he was the No. 1 consumer of Sainsbury’s peppers in the North East, adding: “No one bought more in 2022 than you did.”

The Newcastle-based author said: “I opened my email and read the review which tells you how much you’ve bought and saved over the year.

“When I scrolled down it said, ‘You bought most of the paprika in the Northeast,’ and I thought it was pure comedy.

“I don’t even buy a lot of peppers, I definitely didn’t think it was enough for the title.

“I often make a chickpea dish and season fried vegetables and scrambled eggs, but I didn’t find it that much.

“I don’t think I earned the title because I have a bizarre pepper addiction, but because other people in the area don’t buy much.

“Maybe they’ll buy smoked paprika powder or other spices.”

Paul claims he only bought five jars of Sainsbury’s own brand peppers, which cost 95p each, meaning he snagged first place for the bargain price of £4.75.

The author posted a screenshot of the achievement on Twitter captioning it:

“This is the most pathetic moment of my entire life”.

The hilarious post garnered 244,000 likes.

Many were quick to congratulate Paul, telling him they were “proud of him.”

One commented, “I followed you for that accomplishment,” and another said, “I’m sick of you pepper barons with your stranglehold on smoky spices in the Northeast…”

Marie Gardiner wrote: “I mean, that’s still quite a lot of paprika. We have a jar, but we’ve had it for ages.

“You just sparked such a fun debate between the two of you [husband] and I do. “How many peppers would that be?” etc.

“He said he would have a little badge and trophy made, so you have a fan.”

Paul replied: “Marie I’ve bought maybe five small jars throughout the year, who knew goulash was so unpopular here.”

Others took the opportunity to add their own shopping rankings, such as Alexandra Ayears, who discovered that she is the number one buyer of chestnut puree in Gillingham, or a user who used to be the number one buyer of Alpro yoghurt, when she was still shopping at a smaller Sainsbury’s.

Aaron commented “I can beat that” adding his success as the top buyer of toilet gel in England or Jo who bought the most ice cream cones in England and showed an “extraordinary dedication to the world of ice cream”, as Paul put it.

Another top shopper in the Northeast like Paul is Marc O’Conner, who bought the most vegetarian sausages.

Others had smaller top positions as best shopper in their local store, like Petros, who bought most of the pickles at his Sainsbury’s.

James, who finished third in his local Sainsbury’s rankings for switching up the oat milk he buys, already has a plan in mind for next year: “If I stick with one brand, I’m sure I’ll stick with it will be at the top next time .’

Paul added: “I thought it was hilarious so I sent it to my friends first.

“Then I put it on Twitter and it snowballed. I didn’t expect this reaction.

“I was out with my buddies last night and when they brought back a pint they asked if I wanted some peppers with it so I don’t think I’ll be using it any time soon.”

The pepper lover joked that he’s now aiming for gold and will be throwing a party when he does his biggest shopping in England this year.

He added: “Maybe I’ll start working my way through the spice rack, this year I could buy a lot of cumin.

“If I win the Pepper Buyers’ Title in England this year, I’m going to have to throw a party.”
