Food

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
I am now craving pancakes thank you fiend.

when I was on Fitzroy Island in Australia, Merri and I had a whole long conversation about missing food from home- like mashed potatoes and ben&jerrys.

what do people miss from home when they're away?

    I used to miss a certain sparkling passion fruit drink from South Africa, but now I've realised my local quicki-mart carries it! Bonus!

    I'm sure it's in England too. When we went to Majorca they had the big 2L bottles :D

    Apologies to all. It would appear you get Irn Bru South of the border.

    Although I was in a town called Rippon early this year and when I asked if they had Irn Bru I was given a really blank look. Ho, hum!

    Ripon is a city.

    You can get Irn Bru in Ripon, you obviously went in the wrong newsagents. You can get it in Yorkshire, but not in ever shop. It's like Tizer, you can get it in enough places.
