Least successful office confectionery


#1

There’s a packet of “golden peanuts” from somewhere in the Caribbean (apparently) that have survived the morning tea/coffee rush completely untouched. This is unprecedented.


#2

Someone brought back some Durian biscuits a few weeks ago. CHRIST ALIVE.


#3

In Bradford - so we get quite a lot of asian sweets in here. I’m grateful lads but this is basically fried sugar.


#4

You’d have to be Hungry Like the Wolf to go for those?


#5

Fixed that for you.


#6

you haven’t changed a word you helmet


#7

oh wait - you have.

still a helmet


#8

yeah I will eat anything and I did have one of these and they were just horrible, even the smell

I should have known because I have eaten durian before :confused:


#9

As a joke I brought back some salted liquorice from Sweden once (in addition to some normal biscuits).

No one took more than one piece.


#10

You didn’t even acknowledge my ‘amazing’ joke. :frowning:


#11

You didn’t need to style it out as a joke to us, mate.


#12

I brought some liquorice last week, it hasn’t been finished. The salted liquorice did eventually get finished.

When I brought in some Turkish delight from Sainsbury’s after being in Istanbul, no one had any.


#13

YES


#14

I am not sure the appeal of Turkish delight I am not sure I know one person who likes it? Also did the turks really invent it and name it?


#15

Nah, it was just the cheap Fry’s stuff. Somehow all the nice Turkish delight didn’t make it to work.


#16

Person at work made a savoury cake out of crab sticks once. SO bad.


#17

Those hard american gums. Worst sweet of all time, barely ever veggie either.


#18

Salted liquorice goes down pretty well here.

Someone brought back some dried fish snacks from Scandinavia last year, they’re still in a tupperware box into which they were banished. Absolutely stank the office out but quite tasty imo


#19

I always presume I don’t like Turkish Delight but the last time I ate any was out of a box of milk tray when I was a child. After having a gander on wiki at the proper stuff it looks kind of all kinds of delicious -

What have I been doing with my life!?


#20

It is soooo much nicer, I always hated turkish delight as a child, turns out that I was eating FAKE stuff.
