TA will be improved significantly by the income from Product Placement.
Look out for Heinz beans in Tony's veggie boxes. :-)
Brilliant that was. And it shouldn’t have gone over my head. My friends
who used to live in Bromsgrove, moved to Poole. The Lush factory was two
mins walk from their house on a tiny ind. estate (not more than another
five to the hugest Lidl I’ve ever seen).
Yes, Pop Tarts still exist. Sains has choc or strawberry. £2.70. Thanks
Just a wild guess but I imagine that £2.70 isn't for a box of 36.
In the interests of research, while I was in Sainsbury's this afternoon
I bought a box of eight for a taste test. Then, having tasted the box I
tasted a pop tart. I think the box might have been a little bit better.
There's a wonderful illustration of a pop tart on the packet and I think
I've worked out how they managed to use it to imply that the filling is
five times thicker than the pastry without actually saying that it is,
because it isn't.
On a more positive note, I can confidently state that the product
contains no artificial sweeteners of any sort - unless you count certain
sugars that don't seem to exist in the natural world but manage to
stabilise in a pop tart.
All in all it was a very absorbing experience - one that I haven't had
for about twenty-seven years.
And if I'm lucky I won't have it again for another twenty-seven.
