Now bought a second one.

Valves and other spare parts are available on the net.

You can even download trader service sheets to help you fix them.

Just been to Spoons in Tavvy with a mate, only second time since it opened, burger and chips two pints of quite nice beer under a tenner. The burger was shite though.

Just had free range eggs poached in a big pan of fried tomatoes on gert slice of buttered toast. Bit like Heuvos Rancheros without the onion, chilli and peppers which I find a bit much first thing.

Small food. This almost deserves a thread of its own and I rate it at a seven out of ten in the important things scale.
Fed up with throwing half cans of beans away I asked the missus to pick up some small tins of beans. Small beans duly arrived and I tried them out yesterday. I was expecting a half tin maybe a third. Boy was I disappointed. I toasted one slice of toast, got out the small bean pan and saw to my dismay the beans only just covered the bottom of the pan because the sauce filled in the gaps between the beans. I shit you not. Heating such a small layer of beans is really difficult without scalding and Heinz clearly state on the directions to never boil beans. Anyway I soldiered on carefully manipulating beans and sauce until nicely warmed and poured onto the toast which was actually slightly larger than the small bean pan in area. What can I say? Barely enough sauce to soggy the toast and the beans not even enough to cover three quarters of the bread, when I would say at least a depth of two beans and enough sauce to overflow the edges of the toast is needed for a satisfying snack or light meal.
Don't even get me started on Mars bars.

Post of the decade. Never half the price either, better of buying a truck load and overeating.

This is not mundane but VERY IMPORTANT.

One of the (many) things that hack me off is the size of the average bottle of salad cream / mayonnaise / sauce, especially when coupled with the ridiculously short use by dates on some of them. You'd have to eat the stuff every day to get through it.

I have, however, found an answer. Any time anybody in my extended family eats in a place which doesn't charge for the little sachets they scoop up a pile for me.

Branston pickle too. I'm the only one in my house that eats it.

'Once opened consume within 6 weeks'. WTF.

I'm barely halfway thru, but I reckon it's been in the fridge a good 4 or 5 months. Good news is it still tastes fine.

Marmalade on the other hand. I reckon a jar lasts about a fortnight - tops. We love it.

A very interesting topic which does deserve its own thread.

People get very confused by the wording on food. We should not always rely on the dates on packets as there is a difference to what the dates actually mean. As I will explain.

Best before date is for quality. eg if crisps or sauce for example exceed the date they might not taste as good as ones in date.

Use by date is for food that maybe not safe to eat after said date. eg chocolate eclairs may be unsafe to eat after the use by date and could cause food poisoning.


I recently bought some Kraft mayo and colemans seafood sauce from rogers wholesale foods in plymouth that had a best before date of 2015. As a test I bought the same products from my local supermarket and if im honest I could not taste the difference between the ones in date and the ones out. Also they are bloody cheap.

I bought six jars of sea food sauce for £1 compared to £1.50 per jar in my local supermarket.

They also do loads of other products like soft drinks, gluten free stuff and crisps to name a few. My advice is check out the facebook page for the latest stock info.

My advice dont worry to much about bset before dates on food just be concerned about use by dates.
