Tunnocks Wafer Review
|Just a thought Nicey.|
If you put all the 4 million odd wafers that Tunnocks produce each week end to end, where exactly would it take you? I know it's Friday afternoon and I really should be doing some work instead of browsing around your wonderful website, but it's got me wondering.
|Nicey replies: I make it approximately 230 miles working back from my how many Tunnocks wafers to reach the moon calculations. So yes it potentially would take you 230 miles away from where you are now or nearly twice round the M25.|
love the site, especially the rave reviews of all things Tunnocks.
Have today had the best biscuit ever. This is the biscuit that Choco-Leibnitz should have been.
Marks and Spencer Extremely Chocolatey Biscuit Rounds. £1.29 for a pack of 8, 6.5g of fat per biscuit...and it's all worth it. Come in either white or milk chocolate...and they are smothered in creamy chocolate! Shaped something like a trivial pursuit piece...they are easy to grip and require at least two bites to devour. But oh, the chocolate to biscuit ratio is perfect..you gotta try them.
|Nicey replies: I think this is one of the Fox's Creations range doing a stint for M&S, expect to see it turning up in any number of Christmas selection tins very soon. I think off the top of my head that the chocolate to biscuit ratio on them is up in the 4:1 or even 5:1 area as opposed to say the 3:7 of a McVities Chocolate Digestive. Personally I think that's a bit too much, but they obviously have got you well on side.|
Tunnocks Wafer Review
I recently rediscovered the Tunnocks Wafer. This opens up many a conversation. Is a Tunnocks Wafer a biscuit (in my opinion, yes) and have any other readers rediscovered biscuits that have been long forgotten?
On the packaging of the Tunnocks Wafer is the remarkable statistic that 4,000,000 are made weekly. I left school and moved from Elgin in the NE of Scotland in 1994 and via various countries have found myself in London. I have not had a Tunnocks Wafer since then. Who is getting my share?
By my calculations the population of the country is 60,000,000 and 2,080,000,000 made since I last had one. I have therefore missed out on almost 35 Tunnocks Wafers. Whilst this may not sound a lot, try laying them down end to end and munching through them in one sitting. I did.
P.S. Love the site. Keep up the good work.
|Nicey replies: Mark,
We have pondered this question several times in the past. We recently heard that you can get Tunnocks wafers in some parts of the Caribbean, which just shows that its not a simple issue about where they all go. I wonder if even Mr Tunnock himself knows. Perhaps they could fit some with satellite tracking, and get one of those big Bond villain maps of the world, with little lights on it. Obviously Scotland would be fairly bright.
||The no fur pad is the answer. This is a cylinder of steel wire, about the size of a wine cork, on which the limescale collects.|
As long as you rinse it through every few weeks it works for years. I have used it on several kettles and my balls a have always remained fur free and bouyant to the last.
|Nicey replies: Yes we had one of those but it couldn't cope with our local water which is drawn from underground chalk.
||Have you seen this? Sounds a bit too exciting for me! Maybe a cup too far?|
Explosive al-Qaeda brew hits Guinea A new tea craze sweeps through Guinea, but it is not the brew itself that is new, but its name - al-Qaeda.
|Nicey replies: Yes there is a lot of information in that article although its mostly about the bowel movements of strapping great African fellas.
