Extra-soft dot-com opportunity

Time to start Click-a-roll.com?

A new report says toilet paper is by far the No. 1 seller at British retailer Tesco’s online grocery.

Specifically, Tesco.com has sold nearly $3.7 million worth of “Luxury Soft Toilet Tissue” 12-packs so far this year, according the report from comScore Networks.

By volume, the top seller is bananas. Tesco customers bought more than 11 million bananas in the first seven months of 2006.

On second thought, maybe this says more about British people than it does about opportunities in e-commerce.
