    I've never tasted horlicks but understand it's a bit like Ovomaltine, ovomaltine chocolate and biscuits are to die for.
    Is Ovomaltine the same as Ovaltine in UK? I presume Ovomaltine is the European/Swiss name for it??

    Sounds as if it started in Switzerland and ended up being produced in different countries but apparently it's not always the same.

    It's in bloody everything here, this thread made me buy some ovomaltine chocky biscuits on the way home and here are some of the products in the supermarket :D

    I'm actually pretty jealous, they look pretty yummy.

    Could just be the bad day at work talking though.

    They are yummy, I'm a fool for buying them with zero self control.

    There's probably some ovaltine lover out there who has just had a heart attack seeing that lot.

    And they are available at a rather extortionate price on Amazon UK if youíre interested.

    We only have Rare Tea Company tea. Were really not posh enough, but there it is. All 14 varieties (not counting infusions like Rooibos). 7 or 8 of those are black tea.
    How are they as a vendor? Any recommendations?
    They're quick on shipping. Emperor's Breakfast is nice, but you might need a mortgage. RAF tea is pretty good. Speedy Breakfast is good and strong. Lost Malawi is a good English Breakfast tea. Keemun has a nice flavour to it.

    Also, I'm not impartial as the owner is family.

    Just had six emails from AnswersHQ
    Never heard of it before but apparently Iíve just got the six years badge.
    On closer examination itís something to do with EA, not sure what though

    @X201 It's the EA "peer to peer" support system... i.e. the "we're too cheap to pay for proper support" forum. You've probably either registered for it at some point or had one of your other EA accounts mapped onto it.

    Giraffes are really fucking weird looking things.

    Like if a kid was shit at drawing and tried to draw a horse.

    @Rum_Monkey The original design for giraffes had them fitted with jump-jets and mounted missile launchers on either side of the neck. Guess there were budget cuts...

    Used Wonga many, many years ago and they're currently paying out on claims on mis-sold loans.. just got £50 back which is about 5% of the total they said I was eligible for. God knows how much they're paying out overall.

    Surprised he's still lacking that much self awareness that he still posts here.

    But this is a guy who introduced himself with a thread about not wanting to be defined by autism that was all about being autistic.

    The episode where Homer enjoys a cup of Ovomaltine after playing the saxamaphone was the last decent one I reckon
