“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.” ― J.R.R. Tolkien

Is it just me or is everything shit? Sorry, but that's the title of a book I recently read (very funny, by the way) and it seems particularly apt this morning. Why? OK, I'll tell you why. I just ate a Jaffa Cake. Yes! A Jaffa Cake! Those things were seriously lush when we ate them back when we were kids, right? Moist sponge topped with awesome chocolate and a super tangy orangey centre. 

So why is that these days they not only seem a lot smaller than the used to be (I guess because our hands are now bigger? Naah) but they taste like cardboard dipped in Tesco Value Marmalade with some bog-standard choc plopped on top? I kid you not. I am sorry, but this is not the only instance of this kind.

Remember Wagon Wheels? Those things were friggin' HUGE when we were kids. Now they barely take two bites to eat. 

What's the deal?

Here we see proof that Aussie Wagon Wheels are bigger than English ones.

  2. Michael <-------- obviously lacking in certain areas of indulgent snacking


Come on and chew the fat!
