Mince Pies & Other Metaphysical Musings -> 2019

Close but no cigar.


How can they sell this as Sea Salt anything with next to no salt in it?

Cunts.


#602

or bacon :grinning:


#603

Rarely has the required sugar content though.


#604

try glazing it with some shit like maple syrup or treacle


#605

That’s a hanging offence. AFAIK that’s the only one that has never been abolished.


#606

I agree. However, I have had the tea at Cafe Nero before and so, with the wisdom gained from experience, I gave their tea a wide berth (:face_vomiting:). I shall avoid the coffee (:face_vomiting:) there as well in future. The festive pastry puck is a criminal offence and steps should be taken :rage: to address this. Usually, I am reluctant to deploy a Molotov cocktail for a first offence but this case may prove exceptional.

(Excuse the delayed response, my original reply disappeared into the ether…)

This M&S salted caramel Christmas pud gets close but not quite.

Conceptually it can fuck off though.

The key figures we’re looking to exceed are (per 100g)

Fat > 17.5g
Saturated Fat > 5g
Sugar 22.5g
Salt > 1.5g
or
Sodium > 0.6g

This. It is an abomination by the looks of it.


#609

Pie investigations take a dark turn at the hand of the curd man. Best = deathy…


#610

You couldn’t be more wrong about the combination of bacon and maple syrup.

I also may have scarfed the odd rasher of candied or chocolate dipped bacon in my time. Don’t judge me :upside_down_face:


#611

:ok_hand::heart_eyes:


#612

Maple Syrup, the proppa stuff mind, goes well with all pig meat. Science fact.

In 2000 I sat in a maple forest in Quebec eating a meal of thick cut smoked ham and mashed spuds covered in Maple Syrup. Easily one of the best meals I’ve eaten.


#613

I would pay £13,000 for a water cannon right now, this pigmaple trend needs cleansing


#614

I’ll share the cost with you :+1:


#615

Scrap the rest of the forum. All we need is the mince pie thread really.


#616

Quite, although seasonalists can only use it in December…


#617

Will report back on these tomorrow


#618

It’s not what I’d regard as the best, I’m just interested to find the most lethal Christmas foodstuff.


#619

Rather healthy looking. Are they from some hipsterish wholefoods emporium?


#620

Another close call
