Yes, it has to be cold toast with margarine.
You get an oil slick but that's part of the treat :mrgreen:
That's specific so you must really like it :lolboard:
I don't talk for the sake of it :roll:

Exactly which is why I want to know about unusual snacks.
Another one which I was into for a while was crab stick sandwiches but I don't do them now.

Anyone remember when deep fried Mars Bars were all the rage?
They had all the chocolate bars up for grabs like deep-fried Curly Wurlys etc.
I saw one being eaten and trust me a pig would refuse them.

They are on many menus in Sunderland - Humbledon Fisheries is one example so go and order one with your takeaway today. They are only £1.30.
