Things that pee you off

I just go for red top. Nothing else.

I did go into two supermarkets yesterday, and was astounded see mince pies on sale already. Ridiculous, there's two months to go yet before Christmas.

Oh, btw, I only treated myself to one box ! LOL

Jill, there's already an appalling yogurt drink concoction called Yakult. The very sound of it sends me bilious.

My preference is jersey cows milk. I've always loved it. Lots of places don't stock it now because it's considered unhealthy. Bl**dy nanny state isn't telling me what I can have! Yummy!

Yes, FLY, I've seen that but not tried it. It does sound a bit dicey. I have yogurt for breakfast every day and am currently scoffing kefir which is fermented yogurt. A bit thin but ok. Prefer something like Rachel's or Onken but only certain flavours. Tried a special edition strawberry and champagne recently...yuk, never again!

Not to mention hot cross buns!

Jill, Lidls do lovely flavoured yogurts in large tubs. The manufacturer is Milbonia or something similar. I got two vanilla ones yesterday. Absolutely scrumptious, especially with runny honey (also at Lidls) 

I'm not sure I like the sound of Kefir, it sounds a bit African to me !

Vanilla is a favourite, as is honey! I'll give Lidl a go. Like their smoked salmon. Kefir is, I believe, originally a Turkish method of fermentation. I suspect you're thinking of Kaffir, FLY. Think that's a no no word these days. I'll probably be prosecuted now! :rolleyes:

Yakult (above) tasted to me as if it has been eaten before by someone else - the name even suggests that. Popular down here though.

 

With yoghurt, I really used to enjoy Sainsbury's black cherry yoghurt when I lived in England so, when I was over last Christmas and went to Sainsbury's in Chichester (mentioned in another thread re. pork pies), I saw this ostensibly same flavour yoghurt. I bought a pot. Disgusting!!!!! It tasted of bitter almonds and had a very rough texture on the tongue. The roughness was most likely due to the cornflour content. Cornflour has no place in yoghurt.

 

For information: Kaffir, as well as being a derogatory term is also the name of a variety of lime with very aromatic leaves. Used in Asian cooking. I have a kaffir lime tree in my collection of citrus trees.

Anything unpleasant tasting very rarely gets past my lips and if by chance it does, it never happens a second time.

Yakult is best avoided, I feel.

Do you feel better for taking it or does it give you a feeling of bravado in being able to get it into your stomach?

Wot? No sterilized milk? Yuk...or should that be Yak?!

Not seen sterilized for years we, have long life UHT treated milk which I guess is like sterilized and doesn't need keeping in the fridge. I didn't go down the aisle with the tinned milk in it, sweetened and unsweetened condensed and evaporated milk and coconut milk and all its variations.

Too confusing and don't even get me started on bread, that's worse when it comes to choice

Grandma Kate always had sterilized milk. My mother detested it and always took her own pasteurized milk when we went to visit...along with her own China cup and saucer!

It certainly had a taste all of its own. I could not drink tea with regular flat top milk till I got married. Weaned myself off stera. Not sure if it was because Long Clawson dairy didn't carry stera.

What put me off sterilised milk was that it had a slight brown colour and, to me at least, a smell of cowsheds - that was before it got near my mouth

Idiots who abuse the 999 system. The clown who called it over a 3p dispute at a filling station is a prime example. Unfortunately being a prize moron is not an offence but wasting police time is. Take their details and then prosecute and fine them heavily to get the message over that you do notrisk putting othets at risk because of your own stupidity.

Drivers who don’t indicate at roundabouts so you presume they are going straight on and then turn left so you could have gone. Those who pull in behind you to let an ambulance/fire engine through and then try to pass when it has gone past.the idiot who blocked my sisters car in a parking space and then watched her trying to get out, waited until she had managed to get out and was waiting to get on Road and then came to move his car and “help” her.

Never satisfied some of 'em. Don't mention them and your wrong, include them as they are and you are wrong again. Grow up and get a life.

Filling Stations that sell groceries ! I was in Lymington Hants last Sunday, and in rather a hurry to be on the road home. I filled up at the Co-op and then had to wait about ten minutes while a woman bought the week's groceries. One till open, and about a dozen frustrated motorists twiddling their thumbs.
