It hasn’t gone unnoticed by Nigel that America likes to do things BIG, in particular, as far as Nigel’s interests are concerned, items of a confectionary type nature, to wit M & M’s.
It seems that he had a bit of a yen to treat himself to a bijoux packette of Peanut Butter M & M’s, but despite a very prolonged search all he could find was what they call a family size bag ……. well, that’s what he is telling us anyway.
Now, back at The Towers the largest bag of branded sweeties we could ever hope/expect to share would be a 4 to 6 oz. pouch, but in The Big Apple, as Nigel has found, a 1lb 2.4oz bag is almost de rigueur. 1lb 2.4oz? Can you imagine? That would last us for weeks (well, perhaps one week). As you know we greatly appreciate the odd Maltesers or two ……. 1lb 2.4oz in Maltesers would fill a blooming bucket!
Nigel has promised that he will ration his intake of said M & M’s very carefully and that during his search he also found one or two other choice confectionary comestibles that are now filling a corner of his suitcase ready to bring home and review …… bless his cotton socks!
