Brittany Hockley reveals secret supermarket codes to show you’re single

Brittany Hockley has revealed the ‘secret code’ shoppers can use in the supermarket to show they are single, looking for love, or open to swinging.

The 35-year-old singleton said there are several little-known signs people use while shopping to make it clear they are looking for something more than just groceries.

‘There is this myth that you can go and pick up in a supermarket and there are all these signs and signals that you can pick up, depending on what’s in your trolley,’ she explained on her podcast Life Uncut.

‘And I have some hot goss: it is a single’s club,’ she added.

Brittany explained that supermarket cruising requires single shoppers to get a trolley and head to the fruit aisle, where each item signals a different meaning. 

‘If you pick up a bunch of bananas, if they are upright, meaning the curve is facing up, this means you are single,’ she said.

She added that if you just want to buy bananas but you’re not looking for sex, you turn them the other way.

‘If you have a pineapple, and it’s upside down in your trolley, you are showing everyone you are open to swinging,’ she went on.

Supermarket ‘sex signals’ explained

An upright bunch of bananas: You’re a man looking for a woman or man

A pineapple the right way around: You’re a woman interested in finding a man

An upside-down pineapple: You’re a swinger looking for another couple

Putting a peach in a man’s trolley: You’re showing interest in a male shopper

Bananas with the tips down: You’re not looking for sex on this occasion

‘If you want to show your interest in a man, you put a peach in his trolley.’

An upside-down pineapple is believed to be a universal sign for swingers to recognise one another in public.

According to fact-checking website Snopes, in parts of the U.S., hanging a bunch of bananas through the wires of a shopping cart has at times been a way for a male shopper to indicate his desire to meet up with women.

A pineapple in a woman’s cart is said to indicate an interest in meeting a man.

It comes after Brittany broke down on Life Uncut earlier this week as she discussed her fears about being single forever and never having children .

‘I’ve always said things like, “Maybe it’s not for me, maybe love’s not for me, maybe kids aren’t for me, maybe that’s not what’s meant for me.” Deep down I still thought it would happen,’ she told her co-host Laura Byrne.

‘And now I’ve transitioned to… I genuinely am thinking now, “Wow, maybe this actually really isn’t for you.” And it’s made me realise that I don’t think I believed it earlier,’ she added. 

Heartbroken for her friend, Laura reminded Brittany that finding love and having children are two different things.

'I've always said things like, "Maybe it's not for me, maybe love's not for me, maybe kids aren't for me, maybe that's not what's meant for me." Deep down I still thought it would happen,' Brittany told her co-host Laura Byrne

'Those things do not sit together. Like, you are so worthy of being loved and then you get to decide whether you want to have kids,' Laura said

‘You can and you will find someone that you love and want to be in love with,’ Laura said to Brittany, whose eyes began to well up with tears.

‘Those things do not sit together. Like, you are so worthy of being loved and then you get to decide whether you want to have kids,’ Laura added. 

Brittany, who split from tennis player Jordan Thompson earlier this year, broke down in tears as she insisted that love isn’t on the cards for her. 

‘I guess that’s why it was such a hard chapter, because I know there are a lot of women out there that are in my position. Where you get to a point where you’re like, I just want to give up,’ she sobbed.   

Brittany has made no secret of her disastrous love life over the years. Before finding fame on The Bachelor in 2018, the part-time actress was in a two-year relationship with a man who was cheating on her with 13 other women
