A little treat I thought, a good size, quite deep, more a pie than a tart.
Oh dear, how wrong can you be :o( There was maybe a desert spoon full of jammy type filling....... and a lot of air, inside the pastry case. No way are they worth £1, people must be potty to pay that.
There is a lot of trickery going on with food these days. You need to pick the items up and judge the weight of what's inside if you can't actually see the product. I picked up a box of four battered fish steaks in a box, they seemed a good price. Then I turned the box on it's side and the contents all slid to one end, indicating that the pieces were very small inside. They trick you by using a bigger box with a delicious looking picture on the front. No thanks I won't bother.
The amount of fish in fish fingers is shrinking, whereas the amount of coating is getting thicker, another trick, bulk it out with something cheaper. When you pick something up in a packet watch when the product falls to the bottom, and note how much empty packet there is at the top. Why don't they cut the packet size down and use less? Because it wouldn't sell very well, most people grab it and put it in their trolley without checking. The manufacturers are constantly thinking of ways to pull the wool over our eyes, to trick us into buying less for more money. What we need to do is reject the trickery and refuse to buy, changing to a cheaper version.
Anyway, I've got another hobby, posting these 450 newsletters through people's letterboxes. My friend is on the parish council of a neighbouring village, and they have no one to deliver these. I said I would help out as it's just up my street, ha ha, being as it involves a lot of walking.
So I've printed a map so I don't get confused which houses have been done and which haven't. It's all to do with logistics you see. Winding my way up and down streets on my feet is very much like trucking up and down the country on motorways. I'll soon get used to it again. Toodle pip.
