I think, and I might be mistaken, but I really do think, that this will be the start of page four! Welcome, welcome to page four. Enjoy yourselves, but use it wisely because when it's gone it won't come back.

So close...!

I forget - what is ususally on page four anyway? I mean page three's obvious, but four...?

As for the pringles - barbecue all the way! OR occasionally plain. BUT you've got to eat them upside down so you get the full flavour on your tongue. Mmmmmmm....

I prefer bovril to marmite too (bovril on toast - true comfort food of childhood) but I can go with the flow. As for Pringles... Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm............
I can eat whole tubes of the salt and vinegar ones, but it does damage to my tongue.



It's the corners of the mouth that suffer for me. I'm sure my mouth has increased in width by a few milimeters due to Pringle Burn, hence I tend to stick to the sour cream & chive ones, not quite as corrosive. But on the whole, I think I prefer Kettle Chips.

Marmite is brilliant.

I think you have to be introduced to it at a young age or you never like it.

YES! You used to be able to (and maybe still can?) get a jar of peanut butter & chocolate spread together - in swirly patterns! It was brilliant!

Anyone remember those Pringles Ridges. They were my all time favourite. Plain flavour but the texture and crispiness are were stuff of kings.
Bring them back to me!

You can get a cheap n' nasty version of this at Asda.

However, for the ultimate heart-attack sandwich you need Sun-Pat crunchy peanut butter, Nutella chocolate & hazelnut spread, and raspberry jam. So wrong, yet oh so right.


Pringles just don't do it for me ever since the time I lived off them for 2 weeks at uni... blergh

I think you will find the officialy worst for you sandwich in the world is the "Fools Gold" Elvis's favorite snack which he famously chartered a jet to collect from his favorite diner.

Fool's Gold Loaf
2 tablespoons butter

1 loaf Italian white bread

1 pound lean bacon

1 large jar Skippy smooth peanut butter

1 large jar Smucker?s grape jelly




Preheat the oven to 350f. Spread the butter generously over all sides of the loaf.
Place the bread on a baking sheet in the oven. Meanwhile, fry the bacon until it
is crisp and drain it thoroughly on paper towels. Remove the loaf from the oven
when it is evenly browned, after approximately 15 minutes. Slice the loaf lengthwise
and hollow out the interior, leaving as much bread along the wall as desired. While
the bacon is still warm, fill the insides of the loaf with peanut butter and jelly to
taste. Arrange the bacon slices inside the cavity, or, if desired, layer the bacon
slices between the peanut butter and jelly. Close the loaf. Savor.

Yield: 1 serving (Elvis), 8 to 10 servings (others)

I think they've discontinued the original now - people seemed to prefer buying it separately and making it themselves so they could get the balance of flavours right. Plus it always seemed to get messed up so you just ended up with this weird peanut butter/chocolate spread mess thing that nobody liked - the colours were half the fun!

Also discovered great joy from a pesto and mayonnaise sandwich accompaniment. It offsets ham quite marvellously!

You can get Snickers spread, which I imagine is a similar thing, all swirly.

A smidge of pesto in your tuna mayo sandwich is also marvellous.

Snickers spread... now I like the idea of that.

It reminds me of one of the best sandwiches I ever devised:

Take one pitta bread. Grill lightly on each side - very lightly, just enough to make it swell up so you can slit it open. Apply a very thin layer of margarine to the inside. Insert a whole Kit Kat. Grill on both sides for a little longer. Marvellous!

I've tried to tempt people to the Kit Kat in Pitta Bread (or, as my co-gastronome at the time accidentally said, Pit Kat and Kitta bread) but usually to no avail. However, on the rare occasion when people have been willing to try it, it's been a resounding success. Go forth and eat! I urge you!

Why on earth did you decide to try and create kit kat sandwich? And with pitta bread? And Toasted???

Was it inspired by that well known Scots delicacy, the deep fried mars bar?

I am currenly rediscovering the delights of angel cake, thanks to Mr Kipling's exceedingly good offers at Tesco.

I haven't thought of toasting it though...

Believe me, if you guys knew some of the sandwiches Malcolm's come up with over the years, you wouldn't be surprised at Pitta-Kats

Do you use a 2-stick, a 4-stick, or a chunky?

As I remember, we were in my friend Jack's house, and his house is the sort of house that has things like Kit Kats and pitta bread generally available. Late one night, it just seemed an obvious combination.

Pitta bread - because other bread would be too soft and you'd get the annoying effect where the bread gets all squashed & mangled while the filling is hard & solid.

Toasted - to melt the chocolate a bit! I'd have thought that would have been obvious.

4-finger is ideal (then you can separate the fingers into groups of 2 for more even pitta coverage); otherwise 2 would be ok - but definitely not Chunky.

There's science behind this, folks! I look forward to being offered such delicacies at some point.

Has anyone ever witnessed the Joy that is a tim-tam explosion?

Can be done with a penguin in a pinch.

Is that where you suck up your tea/coffee through the biscuit? Think I saw it done on Graham Norton once...

I'm not sure I understand - is that like biting the ends off a kit kat and sucking tea/coffee through it, or are we talking partially dunking a digestive and sucking?

Ooooh, the Tim Tam Slam *Homer Simpson-style drooling*. Absolutely brilliant if you use the ones with chewy caramel in the middle

You bite oposite corners of penguin or tim-tam then use them as a straw in a cup of tea.
The moment you taste tea you eat the biscuit whole which explodes in a haze of hot gooey goodness.

Try it...




no really...



no do...

I have never tried a tim-tam explosion but I have a feeling that one day very soon, I will. Its imminent. The idea of a Pit-Kat sarnie also appeals (see above). I'm sure if it hadn't have been for that Jamie Oliver bloke, we could have marketed these ideas again, at children. Chlidren are our future, let us feed them.

Let me throw this one into the ring then...

...Get yourself some super noodles (proper egg noodles are far too superior for this) and boil them up. Mix some baked-beans, chopped ham, tinned tomatoes and peperomi/chorizo sausage. You can also add Garlic and almost any herb you care to think of. Thickly slice some mild cheddar and put it all in an oven dish with the cheddar as a topping. Takes a good half hour to cook, but voila!!

I called it Brilliage Pormaine (in a french accent) which means nothing. It just sounds culinary.

For the best band in Leeds, honest.

Roooaaaaarrr!!!

I think before we get to page 5 someone had better mention that the correct collective noun for baboons is a flange.

Ordinarily I'd agree (and can even envisage its occurring in the workplace tomorrow, but... What's a tim-tam? And can you buy them in Yorkshire?

Excuse me for mentioning it, but can I interest you in a panoramic print of York - http://www.panoramicyork.co.uk ? No? Oh well - just thought I'd ask.

Trouble is if you dunk for slightly too long it'll fall straight into your brew. Or if you're too vigorous in the cup-to-mouth transfer. It's a fine art my friends, a fine art.
