Starting off today's Friday Drinks post with a new drink I'm not sure I'll ever be drinking on any day of the week, let alone Friday to be honest.
Coke Ginger?? I wonder where marketing got the idea for this from? A unique twist on limited edition Christmas products? A comeback to pumpkin spice from head office in North America? A flavour that could potentially work for the Asian market for Chinese New Year? Nailing (or not quite nailing) Christmas and New Years in the one product? A guilt free treat for women with morning sickness who're also craving a full fat coke? So many plausible theories but I'm still not game enough to try.
Back to the bucket list. I happened to receive a card by mistake this week. All the way from New Zealand and intended for someone who lives down the road from me. I put my detective trainers on and took along my detective take away coffee this morning and dropped the card off into its rightful letterbox.
SSG Manor 2.0 is slowly but surely becoming my mother's house. Behold the recycling that's going on here with our empty Danish Butter Cookie tins. Except that at home, the tins housed all the sewing gear.
It's been awhile, Arnott's Assorted Creams. Shortbread Cream, it's especially nice to see you again. Except that you seem to taste a bit lemony these days and you're not so buttery in the shortbread department. By the way, weren't Lemon Crisps in the assortment as well at some point?
More of my mother's house creeping in at my place. A paper towel is better than nothing if you're too lazy to use a plate....
Before I go, some saddish news. It's over for my favourite Chobani. I was officially informed via Twitter today that the reason I can't find tubs of lightly sweetened 2% at Woolies anymore is because it's been discontinued due to poor sales. I'm still struggling to understand how this could be the case.
Do you have a favourite from Arnott's Assorted Creams selection?
Did your childhood sewing kit live in a recycled Danish Butter Cookie tin?
