What I want to know is how dare some company with a strange name I can’t recall, package its FIG ROLLS in a red with black and white packet, exactly the same as that used by Jacobs, who make the best fig rolls. I didn’t read the packet, eschewed the poor substitute ‘supermarkets own brand’, and picked this up with glee. Only when I was opening it did I realise the dire mistake I had made.
This ruined my afternoon tea totally.
This brings me to moan about supermarket own brands, which are inevitably inferior to THE REAL THING. And to quibble about the fact that biscuits are getting smaller. Remember when WAGON WHEELS were large and round, when PENGUINS were a decent size, not this snack size offering they now give us?
And has the number of currants in a GARIBALDI decreased I wonder?
And who the heck decided we needed umpteen different flavours of KIT KAT… caramel, mint, orange etc? People who love these crunchy wafery biccies, love the originals and won’t be fobbed off with arty farty new flavours, thank you very much.
Anyway, all this of course is small potatoes compared to the intellectual offerings that went before mine… but you did ask!
