So confident was I that the meatballs in my cupboard were made by Campbells I dug out my camera and went rooting about, you can imagine my dissapointment to find out I was wrong but I am indeed right, that change must have happened fairly recently. Woo hoo it still works

Yes, but it's not the same as buying one from a wee shop.

Should start a Jubilee alert thread on here ::):

Must be a few corner shops who'd make a killing doing them, i made them when i was a manager for spar, just sold them thru the tills using the kwench barcode, stopped when i got my balls rattled for it ::):

Download the image and upload it to YOUR image host, apparently there is a Firefox add in that does it for you. Keep the internet free ;)

Fish n Chips it was a savoury snack, like wee biscuits.


aaah fish'n'chips, made by burtons, as were XL crisps (bit cheaper than golden wonder etc. but hunners o' flavours including 'bovril')
similar were SMAX, wee oval biscuitty things - bacon, chicken or salt'n'vinegar flavour - they were pretty vicious, tons of flavour on them.

try 'farmfoods' for fish'n'chips tho - they did them fairly recently - don't know if they're exactly the same flavour, but no' far off it

anyone remember 'meri-mate'? cheap cola etc. in a plastic tube/bag thing (i.e. not a bottle)
hey, d'ye think it's ootside yir in?
