As you know a couple of days ago Auntie Lynne sent us some, of her very own and therefore “untouched by the hands of machineary”, traditional Scottish Tablet. We had resisted until today to try it (although Nigel has gone on and on about nothing else since it arrived)…. and in honour of such a gift we have decided that it should go down officially as our last confectionary review of 2011!
As we gathereed round our festive tasting table the anticipation was palpable …. and our taste buds expectant of a Scottish delight that we had not yet experienced ….
It did not disappointed ….!!
…… “Sweet, crumbly, rich and incredibly morish” is how (we think) Nigel so succinctly put it!
And Darrell declared that if he hadn’t got work responsibilities of a photicopying type nature he would be very tempted to pack his bags and move to Scotland permanatly if this is what they ate up there!
And, I have to admit, that it was truly heavenly confectionary, I wish I could have eaten forever and which has spoilt me for Thornton’s forever! I award it 20 noms out of 10.
….. as did Darrell ….
…… and Nigel …. like Oliver he said “ Please Auntie Lynne, can I have some more!”
Nom, nom, nom. nom, nom, nom, nom !!! Even better than sprouts!
