Both combinations seem equally disgusting. Seriously, how does someone even come up with that?

That sounds excellent. :shock: Now I want some. :cry:


Aw I wish I had some than I could send some through. I'm sure there's a thingy somewhere on this computer that's solely meant for sending food. There must be.

sleepyhead, once you pass the channel, it's like a different food world here. kind of getting used to it, but some stuff just aren't acceptable... did i hear about deepfried batter+mars bar in Scotland once? madness.

It could be worse. It could be Hershey's. :x *vomit*

I heard about that! I also heard that since the success of the deepfried mars bar, they're now deepfrying everything. That could be rumours only, since I've never been there. Also, is it true that British peas are completely different from other peas? Say... huge and tasteless?

Where are you from then?

i confirm. peas are rotten. mushy. i actually bring back tin cans of peas and carrots from france each time i go home.
and i really don't think the deepfried thing is a rumour.

Eh... sure. Try putting chocolate in that opening in the front and see if you can attach it to an email. :)

Seriously, a little thingy of maple syrup served alongside pancakes* and streaky bacon fried up nice and greasy on the pan... it's great.

* ie American pancakes, which are sorta like English crumpets but thinner and a little more pancakey

I had the bacon-chocolate at a state fair where I live. The vendors had apparently run out of new ideas for what foods to serve on a stick, so instead went with bad food combinations to entice the gullible and curious in the crowd. They always serve weird / oddball items, and I try it every year, for better or worse.

And I have tried the deep fried candy bars / mars bars, and I loved it! :D

It was mostly the pretty sign up here that drew me in.

Also: I am not Irish. I had no idea who Phil Lynott until I googled him. Turns out he even has a statue in Dublin. Nice.



Welcome welcome! Sorry this was late - I was in Colorado on vacation! I'm Irish by blood but live in the US. This board is fantastic!!!! :D

Hi Erin, thanks for the welcome! How was your holiday? Did you visit any national parks?

Ugh, I can't believe you just added pancakes. :shock: Not a big pancake fan, me. Sorry. And yes, I know, weird, everybody likes pancakes right? Although, we don't have something like crumpets here, I think, so I'm holding of my judgement on those.

No, not everybody likes pancakes. too thick, dry and tasteless. I much prefer the more and more famous crêpes!

(eh eh, the baguette vs English bread has already been won in delis. phase 2 of the culinary colonial plan is being triggered. we're now dealing with peas and pancakes. good work sleepyhead! ;))

Well, that all depends on either which brand you buy or how you make them!

Hmmm.. I dont think I've tasted British peas now that I think about it.
Unless our peas are imported. Are they? Bachelors like? Yum.

I disagree. I quite like peas. Particularly mushy peas. Not a fan of garden peas though. :x

Oh I have to admit to not being a fan of peas! My mom served them to me when I was little and I threw them up. Never again was I served peas! Hooray!

Pancakes are ok but I love funnel cakes the best! You get them at the fair - all friend and served with powdered sugar. YUM YUM!!! :D
