    Can you still buy 'Broken Buscuits'? :confused:

    Used to buy a big box (1kg) for 50p. What the heck, if they were 'broken' they still tasted the same.

    I loved these, I was talking about them with my other half in the week and said that for some reason broken biscuits always tasted better....I can't find them anywhere though :(

    And I've just got back from shopping - we walked through Wilkinson's, to get through to the car park as well. :mad: :mad:

    It must be this 'DFW' habit of not looking at the shelves. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Looks as though another trip to town may be called for. :confused:

    Iceland have them, although i stopped buying them because the hungry hoards would scoff them up in one night, and then the kids would want more.

    The most bargainous thing I have seen for a quid is 6 pairs of pop socks from Primark - spent almost £3 on 2 pairs from Boots the other day grrrr

    food wise, if i only had £1 left i would buy a ting of chickpeas or a bag of lentils, tinned toms, onion, indian spices and make a curry out of it.

    That's not the half of it. New research has shown that most foods are low-calorie - for example, heavy foods left on high shelves will lose calories due to gravity making them fall out (calories make you heavier, so they must weigh something, or for the physicists who might quibble: calories add to your mass, so must have mass of their own), and of course, under British law, which states that possession is nine-tenths of itself, food nicked from another's plate is calorie-free, as the calories are still legally in the possession of the legal owner of the food. :cool:

    I got a decent Christmas pressie with my £1....yeah I know its way to early but I stumbled across it..... was browsing in the toy aisle in my local sainsburys last week and I found a little Peppa Pig jigsaw counting game ideal for my sons Xmas stocking (I stash it in advance so tend to buy throughout year when I see a bargain) but no price tag so I took it to till thinking I will spend £3 max on it to find it was the grand price of 79p in the sale! So I spent that and got 21p change from my quid....big bargain.
