Posted:i was born in England, and I havent been back for a very long time.. I was just wondering a few things. Is vegemite still disgusting? Is monster munch still around? Are the Rice Crispie guys still super heroes? does it still effin' rain every day at 2 pm??! Those are the most prominant memories i have from living in London..Croydon, to be exact. Anyone wish to ellaborate?

Je suis le dieu de les pamplemousses! adorez moi!

And I remember fried rice was usually called Egg Fried Rice and consisted of egg and rice, fried. Where's all the prawns and peas and bacon and celery and bean sprouts and garlic and sesame oil and all the other yummy things that should be there?




Egg fried rice is just egg and rice, the stuff with all the bits in is SPECIAL fried rice which is super yummy! Make it myself and I have to say it aint half bad, popping peas!!!! mmmmm

Sorry, I'm not a doddle at this posting quotes all in one post yet....
And bovril vegemite and marmite... nope, Anything brown and sticky and not chutney or onion marmalade or a stick I stay well away from!!!!

Posted:For any ex-pats pining for UK Corn or Potato snacks



squares, space invaders, nik naks, snaps, frazzles and monster munch are all still available. Although i admit that space invaders are rare...



i suggest that until the demise of a snack is scientiologically provened we assume that it is still in existence.



and i wholly deny the existence of 'super crunchies'.

They are clearly made up snacks tongue
