To be honest, Nescafe original is not a patch on Gold.

AS for tea. I can get Ceylon tea for about 3.00 quid for 200 bags.

Reference sprouts. They say that you know when you are getting old, cause you enjoy yer greens.

re HP sauce. I believe it lost its 'bite' about 20 years ago and went down market towards the sweeter fruitier supermarket brown sauce taste. Anyone agree?

 :embarrassed: ...in OZ we have been subjected to a product called V8 vegitable juice for 35 years  :P

A few years ago the introduced a V8 blend with a dash of chilli  :-))...then the marketing  <*< dingbats stopped supply  <:(

So the first option was to try a few drops of Tobasco........... :o ...that wasn't brillant
The second option was a dash of Worcestershire sauce......beautiful  :kiss: :kiss: :kiss: ....Derek

Oh yes...it is marketed 1 glass contains the equivalent of 3 serves of vegies......... {-)

If you add vodka and celery salt on the rim they call it a "Ceaser" in Canada. Cheers!

Im going to suggest that nothing has changed over time, not one item ever!

Bold statement i hear you cry, more likely your laughing at me going ''stupid roadrunner whats he on about'',

but let me explain.

before the dawn of the 21st century tech, the daily products we use were all hand made, now there's the cry , 'hey wait machines were built for mass production, mills etc'

yup your right, but who built the machines? People , thats it , so hand made.

Now into todays age its the same computer controlled production lines, bla bla bla rubbish, yes products have changed over time in the way there made, but the way they are made was using a machine that was put together via someone's hands.

So even today nothing has changed its all Hand Made!  {-) {-)
