Me too. It's the hazelnuts that do it for me.
I apologise, in advance.

Do they still make them? I used to love the nougat filling. I remember when they first came out.

I hope you're not going to get started on Fry's Five Boys chocolate again, Nige!

Being one of five boys (with no sisters), that particular bar had relevance "when I were a lad"! That was some time ago that we had a confectionary "conversation" on here. I vaguely remember it.

I remember when wagon wheels were as big as your two hands.

They were bigger than that.
Or them.

They were never that big. It's just that you had little hands then. Similarly, no-one cooks as good as mum because as a child your taste buds were more receptive.

The chocolate is definitely nicer over here than in Oz because choc in Australia contains an additive to help it last longer outside a fridge.

Sausages over here are delicious. I never ate them in Australia (apart from the hot dog types, and then only rarely) and to encounter the Brit-style bangers again in Ireland in a fry-up breakfast.....yum.

But wouldn't that also make awful cooking even more awful?

I'm only talking about mum's cooking, not school dinners. Mind you, school dinners are the usual target of kiddies complaints, eh? So that backs up the theory.

My school dinners were good. I liked them, but on the other hand, my mum was the worst cook in the world.. The onions in her "stovies" were boiled to innumerable transparent, soggy slivers which you couldn't see until you moved some mince, and only then when the light reflected off them.
She's much much better at cooking now, though.

Now that my taste buds are knackered, that is.

I did not like stew when I was a child
But when I went to my aunt she made stew but called it goulash and I ate the lot.
Funny old world ain't it.

Did I tell you my theory of how quiche never caught on in Scotland? It sounded too much like Keech (with a soft 'ch' as in 'loch') with means jobbies.

So they marketed it as Spanish flan.

I hope the old country has moved on since those days and we have the maturity as a nation  to differentiate between quiche and sh*te.
