||Dear Mr and Mrs Nicey.|
I'm new to this country and would love a bit of a sit-down and some cake. The people I'm currently resting with keep going on about a man called Mr.Kipling, who they say (using a funny voice) makes exceedingly good cakes. I'm after your help - Who is Mr. Kipling? Where does he come from? Does he make exceedingly good cakes? And if so, where should I start?
Kind Regards, Charles.
|Nicey replies: Oh yes Mr Kipling is the man, you'll be alright with any of his stuff. His website isn't too shoddy either, full marks there. It will tell you all you need to know, but you might do well to get stuck into some of his Cherry Bakewell tarts, French fancies, Country slices and Fruit pies.
I was just making myself a fortifying cuppa when someone strolled into the office kitchen, stuck their cold cup of tea in the microwave for about 30 seconds and then wandered off with it looking most happy. what a violation of the noble art of tea-making! do any other of your readers have similar shocking tales?
Well, under Doctor's orders I'm cutting wheat out of my diet for a while, which, as I'm sure you can imagine, leaves a biscuit-shaped hole in my diet. No more Lotus caramelised for me. It saddens the heart I tell you. Imagine my joy when I discovered the fact that Hob Nobs don't in fact contain wheat! I almost danced round the supermarket.....do you have any recommendations on other biscuits that are suitable for my wheat-free existence?
Regards to the wife
|Nicey replies: I hadn't actually realised that about HobNobs, although they aren't listed as wheat free on the United Biscuits special diets page.
You might also console yourself with some Nairns Oat cakes and maybe a pot of nice jam, it could help keep you sane. I've also heard some good reports of wheat free Bourbons stocked at Holland and Barrett I think.
||Our vending machine doesn't even provide us with tea bags - it's some kind of powdered substance!! The other morning whilst desperate for my first thing cup of tea I went to the machine and pressed the 'Tea' button. It poured my tea out straight into it's drip tray and then spat out an empty cup! Thanks machine! Still it kept me chuckling for most of the day (easily amused and all that).|

||Do Not try tea from a vending machine in the US. You may think that the tea from the vending machines in the UK is not quite up to NCOTAASD standards, but it is still far far better than the liquid issued by the machines over here.|
I have had ample opportunity to drink the tea from vending machines whilst working in London for several years. Its not great, but it is much better than over here.
I do enjoy your web site.
|Nicey replies: That sounds like the ultimate nightmare scenario. Perhaps it could be worked into the plot line of an action movie, so that after the tail falls off the 747 most of their limbs have been torn, hacked or shot off, all the air is sucked out and both bombs are about to go off they are forced to drink tea from an American vending machine.|
