Someone at work bought me some. Haven't had it in years... I won't make that mistake again! SUGARY MINTY HEAVEN
Also, tablet. (to the non-scots- like fudge but with the consistency of kendal mint cake.) I now have a new sugar thermoeter, so as soon as I get my heavy-bottomed pan out of storage, I will be cooking up batches of this again. I may even let a DiSer or two sample some. (only if they have a dental plan though.)
Where did you find this?
At least, you could get it from there a couple of years ago. Bit of a trek for most, I grant you.
Now, to try and procure a portable freezer.....
"so Dave, if I can find the means to make this practically possible, can you pick me up some ice-cream for me when you're playing at st andrew's on friday?"
Of course, he is a guest of the bank at the hospitality, he is NOT playing, much as he'd like to :)
It's just Ice Cream with tablet put through it, you could probably make it yourself, it was well nice though.
Thanks for the inspiration- i've just sorted pudding for friday's dinner now :)
'LISA NEEDS BRACES' when they read those brackets..?
WITH MY FIST
i've never had it.
what's it like?
It's like minty sugar...although the consistency isn't as coarse as, say, a lump of sugar...it's much smoother.
are you doing outdoor activities?
I am walking *outside* to the shop to buy kendal mint cake.
doing your mum LOL
It's misleading to say the LEAST. I went to the Lake District for the first time last year and I was told (by folk like you!!!) that I *must* get some. Now, I'm a big fan of cake. But this, THIS my friend, is NO cake.
To conclude- Bleughh.
THEN YOU DON'T DESERVE TO LIKE IT
I didn't even know you could get it down here?! I would take this up with my parents, but I don't like it, so, well, y'know *shrug*
I like mint though and I like cake so i'd probably like it.
It's a wolf in cake's clothing.
It's peppermint confectionery at it's finest!
aware of what it is: negative
to Mr Hasn't-heard-of-it-but-doesn't-know-what-it-is.
YOU'RE AGITATED BECAUSE YOU LOOK AT ME AND SEE WHAT YOU ONCE WERE
sounds a bit Northern to me
Just Say No (does the finger on nose pointy thing)
till I dropped.
I don't like peppermint, therefore I'm no authority...
I'm just going to refer to you as M now.
it's a good meal replacement, i use it as such quite regularly, in the same way as you might have a can of coke instead of dinner sometimes.
what the fuck is this
a can of coke you ignorant piece of shit.
does anyone like Pontefract cakes?
I like Eccles cakes, if we're on a general northern baking tip.
Fucking hell I hate you sometimes thewarn.
So are Chorley cakes, on a similar tip. I'm gonna make some one of these days. Northern food 4 life.
You've made that up.
JUST COOKING A SALFORD SPONGE FOR TEA.
They're like Eccles cakes but with a shorter crust and not as sweet.
Grown men shouldn't know all these obscure cakes.
Carrot, Chocolate, Cheese, Christmas, Cup - if it starts with a c, you should have heard of it - anything else is just a bit Hollywood.
as is ale
Diet-ically speaking of course, obviously I'm tougher than any of those Northern pansies physically.
FLAT WHITES NOT FLAT CAPS
for fucks sake.
"anyone ever eaten a Newcastle Under Lyme biscuit? YOU HAVENT?!"
Does Barnet have any food named after it, or are they mostly concentrating on being hair-based slang?
but barnet church's spire is the highest point in the country going north until the Pennines...or something.
cf: Bakewell Tarts.
i dont recognise the midlands as a place. its north or nothing.
that would be up north
That's a Northern thing, I think. If it actually exists.
would be happy to have him but he's contracted to his club for another 3 years so it's pointless talking about it"
and we're done
You could have put Everton mints in there
i'm definitely done now.
And all over whether tightly-packed sugar and peppermint is a lovely, mostly-guilt-free snack or not (clue: it is)
Shouldn't you all be arguing with Bamnan about the void?
and I regularly take advantage of his Emergency Coke Zero, his gluco-tabs and his oat bars
hence for me, diabetes tastes like sweet snacks* - so you might have a point
*or dinner, depending on your attitude to Coke Zero
it's the REAL Coca-Cola that is his emergency hypo-retriever, and Coke Zero that is his non-sugar sustenance
but taken with Diet Coke, they can make an appealing 3-course meal!
I thought you bonded over your mutual love of Baby D's "Let Me Be Your FANTAsy"
and shows her his Red Bull
Relentless in the sack
...she always got to eat biscuits and drink 7up half way through lessons. NOT FAIR.
never had it myself, does sound very sweet!
