I don't like ff milk in tea or cereal. We used to get some ff when our espresso machine was still around, to froth, but I'm off dairy any way.

Not allergic, but currently still not supposed to be having dairy :( , and I gave myself a few little cheats over the holiday, but no whipped cream for now. I will have a heap of whipped cream before too long! Ooh like those italian tiny hot chocolates with thick whipped cream :faint:

Really?! Amazing! I just googled again after I posted and all I could find was a Facebook post from anchor a few months ago saying they didn't make it anymore and had no plans to bring it back.
If your back's against the wall, turn around and write on it.

Are you on an exclusion diet :(? Tell me to mind my own if you like, it’s just you don’t seem happy about it.

I love fake squirty cream. I rarely have it, but when I do it's brilliant.
I also like couscous, lentils, soup, and ramen though.

I hate most cheeses and brassicas, though, so I couldn't be invited to the majority of Turtle houses for dinner.

Maybe they brought it back for Christmas? I'll have to try and remember for next year and buy a shedload.

Soz for getting your hopes up.

This is like the time someone in Mr D's work talked about Tudor pickled onion crisps that haven't been seen since the 80's

B - I bags of Tudor pickled onion at the small petrol station at x road
S - oh my god I LOVE Tudor I'm going there after work

Next day

S - thanks for that I went in all excited and the guy laughed at me saying they hadn't been around for years
B - oh sorry! I checked last night, and they were Golden Wonder

I LOVE boba!

I’m not keen on Risotto but love Cous Cous and Polenta.

I’m not a fan of creamy pasta and always prefer tomato based pasta sauces.

Fruit teas are just wrong, but I’ll drink peppermint and fennel tea. I also hate Earl Grey but love breakfast tea.
