What's your weakness

Straight question , are black gems in decline ? Last packet I bought ( and they were Maynard ) they were all yellow or green - about 3 black ones 😩
Yes definitely. I was going to mention that black ones are my true weakness, but why should there be fewer of them?

Pork scratchings. I really shouldn't eat them as I cracked a tooth on one of them years ago but I just can't resist.

My family emigrated to America in the mid sixties when I was thirteen.

My first day at my new school I noticed that kids could sit anywhere they chose.
There was an empty seat in front of a very large girl which I took.

Before the teacher had even started, this girl was sliding me and my chair closer and closer to my desk with her outstretched feet.
After putting up with this for a second time, I turned to give her a good hard, dirty look.
When I turned around to face the teacher, he was looking at me and pointed. You, the new English kid, I suppose that you must
know all about Custer?

I said no sir, only that I like it.
" what? what on earth are you talking about"?

Custard sir, I like it, my last school in England made a really good one and so does my mam.

I didn't quite comprehend his answer to me as the laughing from the students drowned him out.

Funnier than that tho was, after the lesson, some kids were backslapping me saying how brilliant I was and did
I come from the same place as the Beatles.

I made friends and people laugh without even trying.

So Yeah,
Custard.

Oh man milk chocolate hob nobs dunked in very cold milk you have to dunk them long enough for the air bubbles to stop but not too long that it collapses I could easily do a full pack in minutes with a pint of milk.
Probably why I got type2 diabetes 😬

It certainly wasn't the best way to start a new school as far as the teacher was concerned but like I said,
it certainly won me some friends. They loved my English accent.
They were absolutely captivated by the Beatles so a lot of thanks has to go to them. (y)

When Maynards joined forces with Trebors they sacked liquorice black ones and made them blackcurrent . Travesty 😩
you can buy lions midget gems in home bargains for 69p with the liquorice black ones or tesco sell lions football gums which also have the black liquorice ones. They are my weakness as well. i can eat a full packet of midget gems in one sitting and then feel dreadful a couple of hours later

Thorntons Brazil nut toffee - I once ate a full bag at work and spent half the afternoon sat there shaking like a $chiting dog from the massive sugar rush :LOL:

Fruit pastilles that restraint means I only eat in the car . I’ve actually driven the long way home just so I can keep on eating them , not to mention getting up through the night and sitting in the car for an hour on the drive 🤤

I have loads of them but the main one is Krispy Kreme donuts. I’m sure they put a little bit of crack in them.
