Actually I thought Unilever made it.

And it was extra goopy as well - it'll probably still be sticking to my heart valves! :twisted:

I popped into my local Keystore for some butter for rolls for my brother the other week (I can't thole the stuff myself) and found them selling the highly promising sounding "butter-like spread". :/

Crispy rolls & chopped ham and pork this morning from Edgefauld Rd - mmmmmmmmmmm! 8)

Partick I reckon next week, then I can do a comparison.

Better crispy rolls than crispy people.

Arrived at work and immedately got the kettle on, switched the computer on - made a giant mug of black tea with three, count them, three sugars, no sweeteners today and sat at my desk at 8.15 this morning having an early lunch.

Worth every penny of the £2.90, but I'm going to have to ration myself, after all you CAN have too much of a good thing - roll on Wednesday, literally! 8)

I can remember the rolls fireman is talking about the Shields Road Dairy used to sell them did a lot of morning trade with workers from Howdens the engineering works.
If i remember correctly they used to be on bread boards and you could smell the rolls, the rolls we get here in Cupar are terrible they are just soft dough you cant even cut them open properly they are that soft.
Only place you can get simlair rolls is in a wee supermarket at the other side of the town from where i stay, like fireman i miss a decent roll to put a square sausage on but for some reason Lidl have stopped selling them instead concentrating on beefburgers probably because its barbecue season which at present it isnt as weve had nothing but rain recently, its not that the sausage werent a seller the freezer used to empty very quickly as it was 99p for a pack of 14 slices frozen.
Maybe Lidl will get them back in again but they have an awful habit of withdrawing items that are good sellers an item such as the dog biscuits which were cheaper than Tesco were withdrawn from sale and i think most dogs in Cupar were fed them as they were such a good seller.

Years back me and the mates after a few pints in Lock 27 would walk down to the old Mortons roll factory chap door the bakers would sell the rolls hot from the oven and plenty of butter on them. :D :D

The best memory I have is as a small boy in Largs staying with my Granny being sent in the morning to Mrs Rumbles (or was that the dairy owner in Claredon St, I can't remember!), the local dairy for 4 well-fired crispy rolls, a 1/4 of corned beef and a pat of fresh butter for breakfast .

On my return my gran would scoop out the soft interior of her rolls as she swore it always gave her indigestion, but she said that with much associated drama and face contortions, crush them flat with shards of dark crispy roll shooting across the table and then we'd sit down to hot, sugary tea and the rolls and corned beef.

When I gave my wife that combination for the first time for breakfast you'd have thought I'd grown two heeds, she'd never heard of it, but still managed to scoff the lot! ::):
