Rather Cross about a Choc Ice

Somewhat disappointing Choc Ice on a Stick

This is just a quickie. I went to the local car book sale today with my friend Diane from next door and was starving when I got back. I decided to just have some hummus, bought in I’m afraid, on toast.

I was surprised and saddened to find I only had a tablespoon of hummus left and this is entirely my own fault; my real man wouldn’t touch it.

I’d only been panicking for a minute or so, however, when I spied a bag of mixed lettuce leaves and wondered what they would be like dressed with hummus. I stirred some of my Balsamic-Honey Vinaigrette into the hummus, that’s all, and it was a lovely lunch although I don’t think this particular dressing is suitable for keeping in your handbag!

A Little Rant about a Choc Ice

Not being quite full I hunted around for some lunch pudding and found a box of choc ices in the freezer that looked tempting, but sadly all the actual ices were not exactly as implied on the packet!  Maybe the almond crop has failed!  Never mind it tasted fine.

almond choc ice has just one piece of almond!

I’ll try and eat something more interesting for my next post but I wanted to get the above off my chest.  Now all I need to do is get it off my hips!

Oh that's annoying, I would actually send an email with those photos of the choc ice to the CS team for whichever supermarket you bought them from.

That's almost criminal, to find that your choc ice has been almonded from the outer rim of space. I'd definitely complain. I expect it was just a hiccup in the almonding machine - but even so, quality control should have nabbed it before it left the factory.

So - salad with hummus vinaigrette. I can see some uses for that idea!

Perhaps I should carry out a few more tests before complaining. I don't mind the work!
