A lot of 0% beers wines and spirits do contain a very small amount of alcohol which is why it has to be authorised.

I got age checked in Sainsburys at the weekend for Monin sugar syrup as my friend was coming round so I was planning on making mojitos. 😂

I was aged checked at the self checkout in Tesco for vanilla extract - it has a small percentage of alcohol.

the list of ingredients says contains alcohol and 54% ABV rum is fairly high up the ingredients list and as the rum is added after the product is baked the alcohol is not burned off in baking


Ingredients
Water, sugar, cream (milk) (10%), wheat flour, rum 54į (6.9%), whole egg, egg white, raising agents (sodium diphosphates, sodium carbonates, wheat flour), honey, salt, natural vanilla flavouring, gelling agent: pectin. *Contains Alcohol, contains gluten. Product weight: 2x140g.

Its not about getting drunk you cant sell any alcohol to under 18s. ?

should we sell cigarettes individually to children*, just one wont do any harm

* joking aside this was a thing in the 70's ice cream vans round here sold 'singles' ie/ one cigarette to anyone who asked

if you ever purchase alcohol or any other age restricted product you wll be age checked by the person manning the checkout or the person in charge of the self checkouts before you can complete the transaction

they may not ask you to provide id but you will be age checked as the transaction would not complete without it
