Runner Beans It Is

Yep, runner beans.

It's so weird - in the USA you cannot get runner beans for love nor money. At least, not the ones we Brits are used to. In the Southern United States they had what were known as 'white half-runners' which were a bit similar, but the Scarlet Runner - (Phaseolus coccineus, Fabaceae) -  is sold as ornamental seeds in the Colonies. We Brits know though - runners are the business. Delicious when sliced and lightly boiled in salted water and served with a Sunday roast. Mm mm mm.

Anyway.... what's the new food?

Name this Food!


  1. Matthew and I believe it is called stargazy pie and originates from Cornwall.

  2. Tell me about this Drifter bar... I'm intrigued.

  3. A Drifter is a chocolate coated bar launched by Nestlé in 1980, consisting of a crisp wafer with chewy caramel. Amongst its advertising slogans, it has been referred to as "the chewy chocolate bar that you really have to get your teeth into." All I can say is, it's yummy. Like a chewier version of Twix with less crumbs.


Come on and chew the fat!
