    Ok, may'be they're just like the rest of us and it's the nature of the business? I remain sceptical.

    ''In September, Food and Drink Federation (FDF) boss Ian Wright warned that the UK was in for permanent food shortages.''

    Not sure what a former footballer would know about it, but if he's correct it should go some way to solving this 'obesity crisis' we're always hearing about.

    Nice thought regarding obesity, only trouble is no shortage of sugar and fat

    Bought some crinkly crisps at Aldi this morning. Very nice too. As good, if not better than McCoys, and half the price. I think many manufacturers have been 'ripping' us off for many, many years.

    Why is prestonchipfryer going for crisps at Aldi? Is that like Genuinecornishpastyman going to Greggs?
