Is it food?

This entertaining blog is an American's attempt to come to terms with British food.

Her review of "meat pie in a can" (one for simonjrogers) and spotted dick are rather amusing. Her search is rather hampered by the fact that she lives in Scotland, not home to many Michelin stars, but then she's not after restaurant food but the real food we buy in shops.

But she baulks at marmite saying "it is similar to what I imagine it would be like to give a blowjob to a diseased hobo". Hurrah!

Perhaps marmite should be deployed to Afghanistan.

We used to call it "the Devil's jizzum".

But it's so tasty. Nom-nom-nom.

That's what Faustus said. "Verweile doch, du bist so schmackhaft!"

Deploy marmite to Afghanistan? You want to start a war?

I am not entirely happy that an American girl, buying packaged food in Scotland, thinks she's reviewing British food.

To be fair, most of what she reviews is available countrywide and not made in Scotland.

Also, Americans have had some success in deploying Viagra. Marmite could be the stick to that carrot.

'spencerpine' sez:

Quite. She might well, unfairly, raise the hopes of any gastronomes visiting our shores.
