Nicey replies: That's perfectly normal urge in somebody your age, and nothing to be ashamed of. It might help you to get over your embarrassment if you were to meet other people with an interest in dunking, perhaps a visit to a local cafe or tea bar.

Fig rolls
Nicey replies: Linda,

Settle down! Burtons have most definitely not ceased trading, they merged with Horizon biscuits a while back who make all the Maryland cookies, they also make Cadbury's biscuits under licence as well as all their old favorites like Wagon Wheels, Jammie Dogers and Toffy pops. They still make their fig rolls but sell them under the Lyons brand. They also make them for Spar, Asda, Sainsburys, Co-op and Morrisons. The percentage fig can vary from 20 - 30% depending on what sort of price point the supermarkets are hoping to hit.

See the 21st Century fig fest for more info.

Nicey replies: Morning Kieth,

Good pragmatic approach there. Of course when they rearrange the aisles ones entire belief system can come crashing down around ones ears.

Mark Gott
Nicey replies: He didn't have a faintly Geordie accent did he?

Alison Debenham
Nicey replies: Yes that is reassuring except that E174 is Silver, the rest are all fairly standard.
