Don't Bother



I don't really have any news to share today
Except for the fact I bought a packet of weightwatchers marshmallow wafers yesterday.
If you have not ever sampled this particular delight
Don't bother
I ate one yesterday
I can only liken the experience to chewing on a rather thick unwrapped sanitary towel.

  4. Diet food is usually horrendous.

  5. John, if you are gonna have a treat, never be calorie conscious, because they always taste crap. Save it for the salads. Marshmallow wafer sandwiches, I can't eat too many, just like Tunnocks teacakes.

  6. Clearly the edition should have been more limited.

  8. Ewww sounds gross. Thanks for the warning!

  9. Yes but have you tried a sanitary towel with a little cream - makes all the difference! ;p

  10. They're wafer biscuits. Even the ordinary fat-full ones are a bit grim.

  11. Scotch eggs are much nicer!!

  14. Well, I guess I won't be having either for my lunch! :-) My favorite WW snacks are the chocolate pretzel bars and chocolate muffins ...

  15. Stick to those insanitary Scotch Eggs.

  16. Hmm very descriptive "liken the experiece to " meaning perhaps you have tried munching both items ? Eeek I should hope not ...but you got that point across completely ... YUK never want a marshmellow wafer now!

  17. OMG! Please don't tell me that is what we in the states call a sanitary napkin!! blechh! As others asked - when in the world did you taste one of those so you could make the taste comparison? This immediately brought to my mind the visual of Sidney Poitier stepping into his classroom to discover his students burning a - ah - used one in "To Sir, With Love". Now that image is burned into my brain for the rest of the day.

  18. What's a 'sanitary towel'? Is it should I have in my bathroom for use after a sit-down?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Thick unwrapped sanitary towels aren't that bad - especially with crackers!

  20. What did they chickens think of them. I assume they wound up as a fowl treat.

  21. You should have added bacon. Everything is better with bacon !

    cheers, parsnip

  22. Yuk, Yuk, Yuk! Gross but appropriate--all those so called LoCal treats are disgusting! [and often as bad as the real thing so why bother!]

    Stick to the Scotch eggs!

  23. Aah, but I bet they weren't the infamous Dr. Whites !

  24. Thanks for the info! Will keep it in mind. (As IF I could ever get your description out of my mind!)

  25. Never ever eat anything 'diet', absolutely loaded with artificial sweeteners and things that are bad for you.

    It's also the case that if you are a diabetic never ever eat any food labelled 'for diabetics', that was the first thing our doctor told us when my Lovely Hubby was diagnosed, and after reading the labels of what was actually in 'diabetic friendly' foods I had to agree.

    If you want something bland and diet friendly to nibble on pop yourself some corn, put the lid on the pan though or your dogs will have the sort of fun filled evening that ours did when my dearest darling forgot :-)

  26. I am always suspicious of any food which has to advertise its picture on the packaging. Must say they look reasonable though - but I'll take your word for it that they are disgusting. Are you dieting again - if so are scotch eggs off menu?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Try Weightwatchers' scotch eggs instead and watch while your weight soars! Is chewing on sanitary towels a normal part of nurse training? Do you also get to make catapults out of condoms?

  28. Don't eat that overpriced WW crap, or any "diet" food for that matter. Just eat real food!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Most of that diet stuff is like eating cardboard.
    I'd rather be happy. ;-)

    Have a wonderful Sunday, John. ♥

  30. I have never been a marshmallow fan, and don't think i shall ever view marshmallows in the same way again, thanks to your description.

  31. Jess had Kosher marshmallows at camp & nearly vomited !

    ( all the food is Kosher so the youth leaders escape to a burger bar or pizza house on nights off ! )

  32. You sound like prince charles talking to thingy me jig

  33. What Little Blue Mouse said. Although these days would they not be pant-liners? To my mind wafers are pretty flavourless at the best of times. A taste experience something between cardboard and shirt collar. As for marshmallow....

    I should stick to the Scotch eggs if I were you. Just try not to eat six at once.

  34. Perhaps eating sanitary napkins is a night duty thing? We used to ambush each other by slamming hard on the applicator of tampons, sending the wadding from one side of the ward to the other.

  35. Sod the low weight stuff! I eat everything like it's going out of fasion. and it's only just starting to catch up with me...

  36. Now THAT was a charming visual!!
