Annoying


#1

Loads of shops sell packs of 2 scotch eggs but **don’t ** sell individual scotch eggs. Like who’s ever been walking around town thinking ‘ooh you know what I fancy. A pair of scotch eggs.’ It’s a fucking nuisance. Use this thread to
A) agree with me
B) share other annoying things
C) chat about scotch eggs

Scotch Eggs! Great to chew; even better to share!

Deli on the street I work on sells giant single scotch eggs for £4.50 a pop. Never tried one, because, y’know, £4.50…


#5

yeah that’s daft. I love a scotch egg as much as anyone but I think £3.50 would be my very, very top limit (and it would have to be a pretty fucking impressive Scottish egg for that)


#6

Good sub-thread idea there:

What’s the most you’ve ever paid for a scotch egg?

I think the most I’ve ever paid is £6.50 for a venison one in a pub opposite the Barbican. Was pretty bloody good though tbf.


#7

Tell you what I like: scotch eggs made with chi-rosso


#8

Ooh, sub-subthread:
Most expensive (eat in) - £6 as a starter in a pub (can’t remember it’s name)
Most expensive (take-out) - £3 from some fancy deli counter

Never eaten a scotch egg, never will.


#10

Not even in soup?

Good lad

In Morrissons (the ones I’ve been in at least) they have an absolute tone of meat pasty options available but if you want a cheese and onion pasty they only sell them in four packs.

As if I wasn’t feeling unhealthy enough about eating one pasty, I don’t want to have to take three home with me to sit in the fridge until inevitably being binned.

Or am I mis-judging the non-meat pasty sharing market completely here?

was going to start this EXACT thread yesterday. but didn’t.


#15

other annoying things: was going to post in that catstro thread but it’s locked? wtf


#16

The thing is, mate, I’d happily pay a premium for an individual scotch egg. Knowing you to be a reasonable man I’m sure you’d do the same for a C&O pasty. Say a pack of 2 scottish eggs was £1.20, I’d pay up to and including 80p for an individual one when I get a craving on a lunch break, maybe even 90p. But I’d never pay £1.20 for a pair, only to walk back into my office with everyone watching me put a single scottish egg into the fridge like a psychopath, I just wouldn’t do it


#17

How’re we all pronouncing scotch?


#18

Word…


#19

I’m sure at the one near me they only sell twin packs of everything.

When doing the shopping at Mozzer’s mid-morning, a couple of times I’ve thought ‘Ooh, fancy a pastie for lunch actually’. They only sell them in twin packs. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying a solitary pasty is enough for lunch, but I’ll always go for a pasty with a sausage roll, fuck having a pair of corned beef slices for lunch.


#21

just gonna bung this in here too because why the fuck not…

burritos are good, right. but I’ve just been stung £9.20 for a bang average burrito, some chips and a can. that’s a fucking scandal. should be £3 or thereabouts. could have got something actually decent for a tenner. sake.

Did you know that in Scotland they just call them eggs

And they call “normal” eggs Bald eggs
