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.|
McVities Milk Chocolate Digestive Review
I've been following the on-going debate surrounding the alleged McVities claim that 65 million packets are eaten every day in the Uk alone. I thought I'd check out the source, and headed over to the McVities website. What I found was the following statement: 'Over 71 million packets of McVitie's Chocolate Digestives are eaten in the UK each year '. This makes for a rather more conservative estimate of about 1.2 packets per person per year, not per day. Not sure if they've addressed the misinformation since the scandal broke on ncotaasd.com, or whether one of your readers has foolishly misread the data; being a data analyst by trade, however, my eagle eye was able to spot the error! Hope this clears things up,
|Nicey replies: Actually we worked out that they meant 65 million packs a year not 65 million a day based on their 52 biscuits a second figure, we told them and they changed their site. They then revised the figure up a few million to 71.
I posted Gurbinder's message because it made me laugh.
