    sweet chilli sauce, cheese fondue, chicken tikka, etc

    If this is unofficially the thread for discussion of crisps and allied snack, then considering the following: Aldi's own-brand plain tortilla chips (ingredients: maize, sunflower oil, salt; 49p/200g) are somehow tastier and more addictive than any flavour of Doritos.

    How did the greasy razor thin slivers of potato that Walkers specialise in ever get to be market leader, it's the perfect example of how England is the original lumpenproletariat nation state. Nothing is too bad for the likes of us, we'll ignore all the better brands of crisps because Walkers spend more money on marketing, and that Lineker lad fronts the ads on tele, so (We was robbed) etc. I saw this shit back in the 90's when they first came over to Ireland, they went from a market share of 0% to 60% overnight regardless of the fact that they were average crisps- they just had enough money to bribe the shops to kick out X amount of the existing brands. Anytime a multinational company comes into a country for the first time they're instantly a success. Even if they're shit, consumers ignore what their tastebuds are telling them as they have to be good, otherwise the company wouldn't have become big in the first place. To this day you still see people in frankie & Bennys who are over the age of ten, hard to believe I know but it's true.

    Well yeah, look at the global success of Budweiser. Or even Guinness - not that it's anything like as bad as Bud, of course, but as stouts go it's pretty much the boring and generic one going.

    British people hate and envy things that are nice. It's our most enduring national characteristic. In a cafe the other day, when I asked for butter to lubricate the bone-dry croissant I had just been served, the waiter looked at me with something approaching incomprehension. The food was edible, so why would I want to make it pleasant?

    Same with practicality. What would we want proper insulation in houses for? What would that achieve except making people warmer and happier? Ridiculous.

    LOL...my relatives' house in the midlands is perpetually cold, occasionally they will briefly turn up the heat up in winter to "take the edge off". the effects are traumatic: my English wife makes up for years of childhood suffering by cranking our heat from October to April and setting the air conditioners on high from May to September.

    wtf is up with you people? just the opposite of most Americans, who's only desire is to lounge in the lap of luxury and comfort whether they can afford to do so or not.

    reminds me of william burroughs fulminating at Timothy Leary's overstocked fridge, the squander and surplus. what happened to your proud puritan inheritance?

    most americans suffer from youngest-child syndrome, essentially irresponsible and primarily concerned about what will benefit them right now.
