You may remember a little while ago I had a gripe about being shortchanged in our packets of gingernut biscuits, and instead of getting 30 in a 300g pack, on occasion we only had 29. Well this seemed to become the norm rather than the occasional shortfall, so we changed shops. However, Hubby was getting through an awful lot of gingernuts as they are one of the very few things he can snack on any time of the day without having to worry about it. Ginger is very good for us anyway, so this is probably why.
Anyway, we started biscuit counting again (we are so sad) and discovered that although the packet weight was still 300g, we were only getting 25 biscuits in a pack.
OK, they were a minuscule bit bigger, but numbers count in our
book biscuit tin!
This would not do at all, so we reverted to our original gingernut supplier and take pot luck of 29 or 30.
Now my song choice today is a fun cover that was the Christmas Number One in 2018
I am rather partial to sausage rolls, and whenever my Mum cooked them, I could sniff them out at 100 yards, so it was pointless her trying to hide them. Christmas afternoon would not be Christmas without sausage rolls to nibble, so we bought some today to put in the freezer. We had a choice of 30 mini rolls for £3, or 20 for £2, so seeing as it was more than likely to just be me eating them, we opted for the 20 pack which I split to freeze in two packs of ten……….. except we had 28 in our box! Hurrah!!
Now that’s what I call a Christmas Bonus!
Enjoy the music.
