part of my "snobbery" I realize, is based on the fact that the main times I stock up on groceries are when I am coming down with a cold or flu. So the fact that the only soups left on the shelves were pho broth and bone broth was a total wtf for me, because those are things I would consider stocking up on if I was concerned about coming down with a respiratory virus and had to be quarantined. Also, oranges and grapefruit.
stocking up on wine and good liquor is totally sensible imo

I love cilantro. It's a weekly buy. I don't get parsley though. I see it in so many recipes.

xp - yeah, i'm parsley agnostic really ... i recently (yeah, slow learner, me) came around to the crucial value of celery.

you lost me at shredded cheese -- if you can afford a subaru, you can afford better cheese and a food processor.
