Malted Milk Review
Seeing your thread on malted milk biscuits, and especially your correspondants comments about eating them at school, reminded me of a phrase we used to have at school: "Cow biscuits are the mother of invention". This piece of wisdom was discovered on a maths field trip, where we all ate malted milks to improve our mental performance - and they worked remarkably well. We even designed a malted milk biscuit which played Mozart, to enhance it's benefits even further.
So, just in case you feel in need of a mentally stimulating sit down, try a malted milk.
|Nicey replies: Katy,
That's a simply enchanting story despite the fact that I don't really know what you are going on about.
My first experience of a high-powered business meeting was a visit to a luxury car maker in Coventry. We were expecting walnut board room tables, and silver service. We were there 4 hours and all we got was one flimsy plastic cup of vending machine tea, from a machine next to the factory floor. It was almost exactly as you describe it in your special report, with the distinct aftertaste of full fat UHT milk.
Needless to say, I've never bought one of their cars after that experience. Couldn't afford it.
Bahlsen Crumblys Review
|Your correspondent Jamie Lindsay will be delighted to learn that the elusive Crumbly's, complete with errant apostrophe, can be tracked down in Harts, Cullens, Crispins, Supafoods and Europa stores at various locations throughout London. They were on offer at 99p but I think that promotion may have finished now. |
||Several years ago, whilst flying to Greece, I was given a McVities Ginger "Cake Bar". Neither cake nor biscuit, I thought , and ate it with my coffee.|
Idly scanning the wrapper, I noticed a spelling mistake in the ingredients list. I lost no time in writing to those nice people at McVities and pointing out the mistake.
As a reward , those nice people at McVities (tnpam's?) sent me the following: A small box of cake bars, some "Penguin" fridge magnets, and (best of all) a McVities solar powered calculator.
Has anyone else had such an exciting experience?
|Nicey replies: Ahh the thrill of an uncorrected spelling mistake. You must love our site.

Bahlsen Crumblys Review
|After reading your review the other week of the Bahlsen Crumblies I got fair excited. The last time this happened was when I heard that Hob-Nobs were soon to be available in milk and plain chocolate varities. Do any of you good people know where such delicacies can be found? I've scoured the capitals streets in vain from humble corner shop to poshest deli but to no avail.|
|Nicey replies: Well as I said they are very rare right now. Morrisons may take them soon as they seem to take a lot of Bahlsen product. There is a store finder at their website.|
