Kit Kat Reflections

This may seem a little strange to some people but why don't the makers of kitkats make a kitkat without the wafer. Every now and then (it is pretty rare and maybe only once every few years) you bite into a kitkat and its pure chocolate. It's not that the chocolate is all that nice really but it seems like a bit of a treat. There is a campaign on facebook (24 members) called CAMPAIGN TO STOP VARIATION KIT KAT PRODUCTS. I think that the proposed four finger Kit Kat chunky could be a mouthful. But what about a banana kit kat Philip? In Japan they sell the following different types of Kit-Kats... here's a list-Green Tea-Strawberry-Parfait-Sweet red bean-Melon-Banana-Choco Banana-Blueberry-Blueberry fromage-Cherry(normal)-Exotic Sakura-Double Berry-Grape-Lemon-Marugoto Lemon-Mango-Cantalope-Orange-White Peach-Pineapple-Raspberry-Strawberryeis & cream-Strawberry fromage-Chocolatier Strawberry & Nuts-Winter Strawberry-Ichigo (Strawberry) Milk-Tsubu Strawberry(with freeze dried strawberry pieces)-An Nin Dofu (Almond tofu)-Azuki-Hokkaidō Azuk-Brandy & Orange-Waguri Chestnut-Chocolatier Noir (Dark)-(dark petits with almond creme filling and dusted dark cocoa powder on outside...OMG!)-Exotic Hokkaido-Exotic Kansai-Exotic Kyūshū-Exotic Tokyo -Exotic Tokyo White-Gold(petits with fudge like covering and dusted cocoa powder on outside..yummm)-Koshian-Matcha -Matcha Milk-Kir-Pumpkin-Uji-Kintoki Milk-Chocolatier Ujimaccha & Kinako-Wish Upon A Star-Big Kat Bitter-I-Stick -Stick Almond-Crispy Monogatari Chestnut-Crispy Monogatari Mango-Little-Little Yubari Melon.

Hadrian's Wall

Last week we spent three days in Northumberland national Park visiting Hadrian's Wall. This is the first time we have visited Hadrian's Wall although I can remember doing it in a history at school etc. The weather was great and we only had Billy with us as the others not around. Billy reserved the word "LEGEND" when he saw the Google camera car in Todmorden. This is us on the 8 mile circular walk along the wall from Steel Crag to Housesteads and Vindolanda on Thursday. The beer in the Once Brewed Inn" is highly recommended (called once brewed bitter rather imaginatively) and helped improve the Folk Group that were playing in the corner in more ways than one.
