    What the fuck is an oreo? I know it's some sort of biscuit, but is there a British equivalent?

    My bad. I keep forgetting things have different names :(
    An oreo is a chocolate sandwich cookie with a cream center.picture
    They also (or at least used to) come in flavors of, vanila cookies and vanilla center, chocolate cookies with: mint and cream, coffee and cream and also chocolate centers.

    Their apple pie is quite nice tho...
    To be fair, their little fried apple pie thingies ARE delicious.
    Not as nice as pizza express marscapone cheesecake though, or their chocolate fudge cake with cream.

    Socialists, the French and when you go to the cinema and buy medium popcorn and they say, do you want large its only 30p extra...IF I WANTED FUCKIN LARGE I WOULD HAVE ASKED FOR IT!!!!

    Well could do, but price will double as well and they aint that cheap...
    Theyll put anything extra on it that you ask though. And its not like you didnt have garlic doughballs to begin, and then icecream for dessert as well as a whole pizza tbh.

    Haha - thats like the rumour there used to be that the outside bit of smarties were made from crushed beatles backs.. :lol:

    That's true.
    Food colourant cochineal is made from ground beetles. Red smarties contain this I think.

    And Guiness contains isinglass - an ingredient extracted from fish bladders. True. :yes:

    Illegal (or otherwise) Immigrants getting behind the wheel of a car with no prior knowledge of the English driving system. :mad:
    I've seen at least half a dozen people driving THE WRONG WAY ROUND A ROUNDABOUT and the WRONG WAY DOWN A DUAL CARRIAGEWAY. :mad: That's what makes me really really angry.

    Oreo's are the BEST thing to come out of America :lol: :yes:

    You only say that because apperantly you do not have cooooookie crisp :hyper:

    Oh, speaking of, they took the burglers off the advertising and box and put that stupid dog on, that makes me angry too. The burglers used to steal cookie crisp. Somebody must have complained it wasn't proper. Dumbasses.

    Can't speak to the Guiness but it's true about the Smarties - Cochineal and carmine (or carminic acid) is made from the Dactylopius coccus - a beetle that inhabits the Opunita cactus.

    It's commonly called E120 and is used in red smarties - which means smarties fail to be either Kosher or vegetarian.

    I have heard that very few people still use the colouring in other foods due to a fear of links to hyperactivity.

    (Many thanks to snopes and wikipedia)

    "A mouthful of chips in every bite" Yeah, that would lead to a bit of confusion, I'm sure.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    yes You can get cookie crisp in the UK.

    And some, though not all beers and wines, can expect to contain more than just isinglass -

    albumin: derived from eggs or dried blood

    casein/caseinate: derived from milk

    charcoal: sometimes derived from bone

    colourings: sometimes derived from insects

    glyceryl monostearate: an anti-foaming agent that sometimes is an animal derivative

    isinglass: swim bladders from fish

    lactose and lactobacillus (lactic acid)

    gelatin: made from bones, skins and tendons

    pepsin: a heading agent sometimes derived from pork

    sugar: white sugar is often whitened using bone charcoal
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Though apparantly it's more of a US problem with bone charcoal -

    Some refined sugars use bone charcoal as a decolourant. In the UK Tate and Lyle and Billingtons sugars are free of animal substances. British Sugar, trading as Silver Spoon (the largest UK supplier) state that their white sugar is vegan but they cannot guarantee their brown sugars as some bone charcoal may be used by their suppliers. No data is presently available concerning sugar in other countries.

    Which means that quite a large number of wines and beers arn't suitable for vegetarians.

    It makes me angry when people who clearly know the road because they work down the end of it, choose to go in the "turn left only" lane at a roundabout because it saves them waiting for four cars worth of waiting time, and then cut across in front of other drivers so that they can go straight on. Dicks. This time it wasn't me they cut in front of though, so someone else beeped at him and then spent ages alongside him on the dual carriageway swearing out the window.

    Another angry one:
    When people have tuna at work.

    I think I'm going to hurl :sour:

    What the fuck is an oreo? I know it's some sort of biscuit, but is there a British equivalent?

    They sell them here. Have a look-see in Sainsburys. That's where I get my supplies. I recommend. Think a cross between a bourbon and a custard cream, but 10 times nicer :thumb:

    Things that make me angry:

    People who walk along quite happily in town on a busy day, then STOP SUDDENLY, ususally in a doorway, or just as they get off the escalator. :banghead:

    People who think they are so terribly interesting/cool that they must have their conversations at 300 decibles as we must all care so much about what they got up to last night. You aren't. And we don't.

    Pedestrians waiting to cross a busy road who stick their infant, in pushchair, out into the road in front of them. :shocking:

    Stealth mushrooms.

    80% of motorists in Leeds.

    People who eat their crisps out of the wrong end of the bag (this one's probably a bit irrational)

    People who scream and swear at their tiny, tiny child for doing something really harmless and un-naughty, like accidentally applying their choc bar as make-up whilst trying to eat it

    Oh I hate that :mad: Oh people that do that should be beaten. Most of the time I'll just push them out of the way angrily r give them a hard smack with my purse as I walk around.

    And similar, people that walk very very slowly when theres no way to get around them.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Another traffic one. People who don't think that zebra crossings apply when they're in supermarket car parks.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Is there any reason why some people decide that it's a great idea to do one of the following:
    - walk right in the middle of the pavement
    - when they're with their friends, they all walk in a line so that I either have to walk very slow or walk out into the road just to get past them

    -people who walk as slow a spossible. If this happens in school, I always get the younger ones pushing me. They then ignore me if I tell them not to push...

    -children who ask me if can buy cigarettes for them. Yeah, of course I'm going to do that when it's illegal:rolleyes:

    And there's always a huge group of them stretched out across the pavement so you REALLY can't get past. And they don't know what 'excuse me' means.

    Also people who are in the way and glare at you when you say (perfectly nicely) excuse me.

    I really hate that as well.

    Did you do something you shouldn't have done, or are they just being mean to you?:p
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Left a massive tip after a meal, left, came back after 2 minutes after realising my brother had left his fags - table cleared, fags gone, barstaff deny all knowledge

    I make this face :grump:
