Tell me about foods or drinks you only had when at your mates, or you had there for the first time then introduced into your life/begged your parents to.
When I was 14 I spent most of the summer at my friend’s house and it was a really hot summer (1997). We mostly seemed to just eat ice pops (those triangular ones, Jubbly?) but on the rare occasions we ate we had boiled egg, just the whites, mashed up on tiger bread with salty butter and more salt on the egg. I’d never had tiger bread before and it blew my mind, and until then I thought proper butter was just something I could only source at my Nan’s house.
Later that week we had French bread pizzas, another first, an incredible first.
