Trolley research: results are in

Trolley lady


It’s been a long old slog but today we can reveal the results of our Rolser shopping trolley research. Over the last three months we’ve stopped to speak to 800 people on the streets of Órgiva to ask them about their Rolsers – specifically, how full they are at any given time.

Readers may recall our earlier post where we commented on the emptiness of the average Rolser trolley. We weren’t wrong. Our research focused on market days when, one would think, the trolleys would be at their fullest. Our shoppers were having none of it.

Maria Alvarez-Carazo from Lanjarón, who was eating a large plate of churros at the time, told us: ‘Me gusta, mirar dentro de mi Rolser – ¡está vacío! 

The favourites were there – the Naranja and Wasabi Smear, Child Smuggler and Scooby-Doo – but we’ve spotted a new checkerboard design and another which shouted ‘Paul Mondrian’. That’s fashion for you.

Art plays its part here in Órgiva and we think the town deserves its own Rolser design – perhaps an abstract collage of the beautiful murals in the square and the electricity substation as you enter town.

The results are below.

  1. Like every piece of research ever undertaken, most of it is completely made up…but Rolsers do infest this land like rodents…
