An after thought springcross 😂😂😂 I know my place 😂😂😂 oh I have had a laugh this morning. Nearly wet myself twice .. I know TMI x

springcross
springcross in reply to J1707

Yes I hadn't long got up and was making a cuppa when a text came through from a friend saying Happy Easter - until then I was still half asleep. I'm glad you've had a laugh this morning - hope it continues through the day (it must be the Tunnocks). So you've nearly done it twice - just be thankful it wasn't one continuous one! 😂😂😂

Clarification is needed here - would he want the tea cake or the caramel water in Easter egg form?

I love their caramel wafers.... 😁

Yea cake definitely

I think he might have the right idea.....we can’t do sweet fanny adams about lots of awful things right now, so having a moment of escapism sounds a good thing to do! Better than fretting yourself into a flare.

Mind you I’m not sure I have any idea what a Tunnocks teacake is? If they’re horrible I’ll change my mind as say he’s nuts!

Imagine a small round biscuit a bit like a digestive and put a dollop of marshmallow on top. Cover it all with chocolate and there you have a Tunnock's tea cake

Tunnocks tea cakes are quite scrumptious, I haven't had one for ages though.

Gnarli
Gnarli in reply to Mmrr

It must be years since I had one. I liked them as a child but then I liked gipsey tart and chocolate popcorn

Mmrr
Mmrr in reply to Gnarli

Chocolate popcorn? That's a new one on me.

Gnarli
Gnarli in reply to Mmrr

Basically puffed wheat covered in chocolate and left to set. Served with an orange sauce. It must have been a Kent school dinner special

Mmrr
Mmrr in reply to Gnarli

It sounds a childs delight 🤣

It certainly was!

springcross in reply to Gnarli

What's Gypsy Tart?

Gnarli
Gnarli in reply to springcross

Evaporated milk beaten to a foam then brown sugar folded in and put in a pastry case. Baked in the oven until set and served cold. I can feel my teeth rot even as we speak

springcross
springcross in reply to Gnarli

Oh dear, I can see why! 😂

Open the flat bottom off two.Stick them together and refix the wrapper.Make it a mini Tunnocks Easter egg.I reckon that could be chased down a hill.....Hey helixhelix there worth a try honest! I put them up there with Jaffa cakes and Maltesers.Oh and over indulgence

What a great idea, I used to stay near the Tunnocks factory and the smell of caramel used to waft around the village. Oh I’d gladly eat an egg filled with gooey stuff. Must put them on my shopping list this week.

Kags1068 in reply to Green230461

Haha - too right!!😁😁 The days of kneeling are long gone ...........!

And its a good question too ! Easter Eggs used to fill the boxes and be think chocolate now sadly a lot of packing and thin chocolate. I went to local chocolate artisan shop in West Malling and bought some home made chocolates for a real treat. xx

A few years ago they did half caramel and half mallow, not sure they do them anymore(not Tunnocks though 😁) they were yummy, love your hubby's addiction to Tunnocks 😂😂😂👍

LOL perhaps he can write to Tunnocks and suggest this! 🤪 I used to fantasise as a child that they they’d make a giant Cadbury’s creme egg like a standard Easter egg size and it would be full of gooey white and yellow fondant creme. You’d have to eat it with a dessert spoon. My tastes have changed (and so has Cadbury’s choc 🤨!) and the thought of eating a huge creme egg makes me feel rather .... 🤢 x

J1707
J1707 in reply to Neonkittie17

Your so right since Cadbury’s were bought out by Kraft chocolate looks plastic and seems overly sweet as well as shrinkage 🤬if it works leave it alone x

He’s composing a letter 🙄far too much encouragement from here has gone to his head 😂

Neonkittie17
Neonkittie17 in reply to J1707

He might get credited with the conception of a new Easter egg and be famous! Yes, Kraft made Cadbury’s slimey and shiny. Their old dusky yummy less sugary chocolate was wonderful. Part of our childhood. 💗

J1707
J1707 in reply to Neonkittie17

I fear gone forever 😭

Neonkittie17
Neonkittie17 in reply to J1707

Yes .. that wonderful Cadburyness has to be a distant memory of our taste buds! Do you remember the slim bars of purple foiled Cadbury’s and the Cadbury oval logo embossed on them? They were the children’s smaller bars. About 6 ins in length and an inch width and slim in depth. Ahh I wish someone would reformulate it! 💗

Ooh, I remember those little bars. Loved them. They seemed very grown-up and sophisticated to me as they had the fancy writing on them!😄

I completely agree that Cadbury's chocolate isn't the same any more, but it's still my favourite chocolate. Two of my all-time favourites are Fruit and Nut, and Whole Nut. To this day, every time I have either of those I have to sing either "Everyone's a fruit and nut case" (was that Frank Muir in the old advert, or was I hallucinating); or "Nuts whole hazelnuts. Cadbury's make them and they cover them in chocolate!" Those were the days of good jingles in adverts!! 😁😁

I remember Cadbury bars. My dentist said I could eat them and it would not rot my teeth. He would be struck off now. He gave us lollipops for being brave too.

My dentist still says it’s the least evil if you have to eat any sweets.

🤣🤣

That would be great if they did. If he starts a petition I'll sign 😁
