Today I have been mostly drinking Clipper Specialteas (sorry) No. 17,
Vanilla Bourbon Tea. It is flavoured with vanilla in the same way Earl
Grey is flavoured with bergamot. It's subtle, not overpowering, and
really delicious. Warm and comforting. I got it from Sainsburys.

Unlike that vanilla coke...which is unsubtle and vile. Tried a sip at a
(bad)taste demo at the 'orriblymarket. Not doing that again.
Pipple loves freebies at 'orriblemarkets 'cos she gets to try all sorts

My prentices [1] like the Vanilla Coke. I just don't like the Coca
Cola Company, full stop. They take great pride in putting smaller
companies out of business by fleecing them and not paying. aBstrads.

Couldn't do it to the leccy lot, 'cos they had a big stick that said
"you can't molish it yourself without a greta deal more risk".
Luckily I wasn't jbexing for a smaller supplier to CCC, but I saw
people who did. They are aBstrads, and they do it based on the zbarl
ordinary people pay them for the tosh they sell. aBstrads.

Any company who molishes an eythos of putting people on to the road to
ruin just because they can, deserves everything it gets. aBnks are
about as bad.

Eshew the CCC, and eNstle.

I also have problems eshewing eNstle. They make too many things, and

No idea how either is made, but generally Condensed is sweetened and
Evaporated isn't with the result that Condensed is much sweeter and
gloopier.

if it was condensed ?

Or you can give up useless boycotts that don't qb any good, not ohl
the product if you don't want it, qb ohl it if you qb want it, and
give to a registered charity of your choice that will qb a whole lot

Crintaon are indeed a product of the Evil Swiss Empire. It's also Evap'
not Condensed, as is all the oriblemarket own brand stuff. See other

Do you find that it's surprisingly volatile for such a thick liquid? I

Speaking as an old grocer, condensed is thicker and gloopier, and often
sweetened. But I think the original distinciton was one of
copyright/product differentiation.

You can use carnation as a sort of pouring cream on tinned pears, but
condensed is UAB in this context.

Shredded weet. I likes shreeded weet, 'cos of no-sugar-no-salt. But it's

That's UAB as in Ultra Amazingly Brilliant? 'Slovely stuff. The Choobs
are a recent innovation, traditionally it comes in tins.
