On the course of my virtual travels the other day, I dropped in on the Foodstuff Finds blog, where I learnt about an awful hoo haa that had blown up over a child's packed lunch. I have to say that a Smarties sandwich sounds fine to me and who am I to complain, coming from the country that invented this (I've never tried one). I must commend the Foodstuff Finds blog for the thorough investigation of the incident, sourcing some particularly attractive Smarties, and not using white bread and thus increasing the public outcry like the Daily Mail did.
Saturday night out here on the Atlantic is chocolate night. By the time I got there, all the Smarties had gone.
Now I know I don't look all that impressed here but actually it tasted rather good. Our baker onboard's lovely malty brown bread with seedy bits in it complimented the Twix perfectly. Although on the downside a certain amount of dexterity was required to hold the Twix in the bread as I ate it - I'm sure a little butter would have solved this problem but, quite frankly, I think I've put enough weight on this week already.
