I’ve just finished a delicious teacake that can only be described as eating heaven! Where have I been all these years that I have never tasted such delight until now? Tunnocks Tea Cakes, or as I like to call them, cake hole fillers! These things should come with a health warning as they can be addictive.
Deliciousness In Foil
It was a couple of weeks ago now, mid-evening and I had just made us a nice cup of tea. We had run out of my usual naughty delight of Custard Cream biscuits, so I made a very polite enquiry that there may be a substitute in the offing. I was not disappointed when these delightful little semi-circles of deliciousness wrapped in silver foil were offered up.
Boy, was I surprised when I unwrapped this thing of beauty and popped it straight into my mouth. I’ve never been a lover of marshmallow, but the taste of this fluffy stuff covered in chocolate was a real epiphany. I deliberately left a tiny bit on my lips so I could lick it for a little while afterwards. It was that delicious.
We Share A Birthday
I can’t believe these things are as old as me, having first been manufactured in the year of my birth, 1956! Maybe I should buy 65 years worth of them to make up for all the time I have missed out eating them? Perhaps if Tunnocks read this blog, they will send me some for speaking so highly of these gorgeous things. I can always hope.
It looks like curtains for the old Custard Creams with a cup of tea from now on. Tunnocks Tea Cakes are the way forward for this kid! Well, I can’t think of any more praise for these super delicious cakefied chocolatey marshmallowy biscuity domes of pure joy so I’m off to make my fifteenth pot of tea of the day.
