Tuesday Twinkies...

Yesterday was Tet's first day in the office and he very kindly brought in some Dunkin Donut holes for us (off to a very good start), then we all went out for lunch and were talking about American food and stuff and the conversation came round to Twinkies.

Ben and I said we'd never tried one which was met with horrified faces from the Americans around the table, so Tet put a stop to that and this morning he brought in a box of Twinkies.

I have to say, that for once, they are as bad as they look. I could only stomach one mouth-full... the plasticy spongey cakey substance instanly just stuck to every bit of my mouth and sapped me of any saliva... luckily we had a cup of tea to hand to wash it down with.

I'm hoping Tet will bring in some vanilla slices tomorrow - I miss them, I thought I saw them in a shop the other day but under closer inspection (my nose pressed up against the glass counter), I realised with much disappointmen that they just looked the same.

I miss British cakes, I miss Friday cakes.

  1. Well, it sounds like rather a challenge to transport vanilla slices in time for a Friday! Maybe we can manage a birthday cake of some sort before too much longer.

    I miss Friday cakes too. XXX
