Can't they come up with original names? 

I do remember the days when Star Bursts were Opal Fruits (the better name of the two). Days when you'd go down the shop with 50p, buy the Dandy a proper bar of chocolate, a 10p mixture, have change, and think the world was wonderful.

Recently I've been feeling really lethargic and I haven't been sleeping very well, so I decided to go on the 80/10/10 diet for a few days. Dunno if anyone knows about it, but 80% of your calories should come from fruit. I've been doing it for 2 days now and I feel fantastic, and I'm sleeping better than I ever before. I can't see me living like this for life because I like cooked food too much, but if ever you're feeling deprived energy-wise, I strongly suggest you do this.

That's why I'm currently drinking a large glass of freshly squeezed orange and passionfruit juice. Lovely, so much better than the stuff you get out of a carton.

Thanks to Katie and co over on the 'end of year awards' thread, I've currently got a cuppa tea and a danish pastry. I mean it, you know, I will blame you. You mark my words :D

I took back the cake, read the thread!! Any cake anyone else had they got themselves and so only have themselves to blame.

Talking of cake there is part of a banana cake i made sitting in the kitchen and very nice it is too.

 

Amusingly this thread conversation links to another thread which links to another thread where it all started.

Vegetable egg rolls from a company called Pagoda Express. I bought them at Walmart a few days ago. They are really good.

My Curly Wurlys came in the mail today and its the perfect late Halloween treat. It is very chewy and creamy, milk chocolate taste. I like it better than the American chocolate I have had for years.

Cheese and Onion sounds interesting. We may have it, but I don't know. A popular flavor over here is Sour Cream and Onion chips/crisps. 

They now have, well they've actually had it for 10 years, Flaming Hot Cheetos. I prefer the original flavor though. 

We shall start The International Beatles Bible Food Exchange System. :D Anyone in?

I have to tell this story. Through a quite convoluted story, I ended up playing tour guide through the Marais district in Paris to two ladies (Ann and Katherine) from Ireland. We all showed up for a walking tour, but the tour guide never showed up. I had a map and my Rick Steves guidebook so we struck out on our own. We had such a fun 4 hours wandering the area, eating at a cafe, touring the Carnavalet museum and Victor Hugo's apartment. Ann kept stuffing Irish candies in my hands as a way to thank me. They were little hard candies. I'm not at home so I can pull out my scrapbook and see the wrapper I kept to get the name of the candies. I'll let you know what they were when I get home.

Edit: Well, pooh. All this time mom and I were thinking that the candies were from Ireland. They are a French brand, Michoko.

Ye don't have cheese and onion flavoured crisps??? :O I never knew that!

Interesting fact: Tayto invented flavoured crisps (the first flavour being salt and vinegar) before that crisps were plain flavoured. Also Halloween is an Irish invention, so ye owe the Irish a lot, remember that a-hard-days-night-george-10 Also we constructed the majority of the American railroads. Go Ireland :P

Almost true, Tayto started flavouring their crisps in the 1950s. However, the first flavoured crisps are considered to be Smiths with the little blue bag (of salt, allowing you to add to taste), which were sold in London in the 1920s. With the brand going onto become one of the biggest, and their "Salt'n'Shake" where flavoured crisps began:

One "unofficial" thing some Americans do is put a whole bunch of potato chips ("crisps") on top of their hamburger -- after slathering on the ketchup or what not, but before capping the whole thing with the upper bun, as it were.  Biting into a juicy burger and having your teeth plow through a layer of potato chips is a special experience -- to be washed down with an ice cold Classic Coke, of course.

I'm down with a Coke, but chips on a burger? It's bad enough Burger King now has a "fry burger," where they put their fries on a hamburger and sell it that way. To me, the burger and fries should remain separate. It's probably an Aspergers thing, but I can't stress that enough.
