    I have a shopping trip to Morrisons booked for tomorrow....
    So that's Chocolate Philly and Ginger Biscuits to add to the list!

    I bought the last pack on the shelf earlier. I thought someone said they were £1. Not in my Sainsbugs they weren't-£1.57! Still, got to give it a try!

    I have just told my 11 yr old daughter about this, and she stopped playing her DS and salivated, just like one of Pavlov's dogs!
  4. I apologise Dragonlady - it was me that said it was £1. In my ignorance I thought it was brand special offer to try and sell the stuff. As it turns out, it's Asda that has it on for £1. The m-i-l was mighty miffed to spend £1.69 (I think) for it in Tesco after my recommendation!
    One tub down...one to go :) had it on toast for breakfast this morning...yum!

    Hey, no apologies needed! [​IMG]
    I've had some on my return from school, spread on digestives. Divine!!!! I'm not a fan of ginger biscuits.

    It tastes rather good on Giongernuts!
    I may have to book a second supermarket trip soon!

  7. I'm following the slimming world diet plan and it tastes pretty good on a ryvita with a sliced banana on top! Guess it would taste better on a biscuit tho!
  8. I am sooooooo pleased to be able to say that the cheese/chocolate combination holds no attraction for me whatsoever! Yay! [​IMG] (It makes trying to lose weight SO much easier when some foods just don't tempt!)
    It sounds horrible...but I have never been a lover of chocolate cakes and puddings (Chocolate cheesecake sounds revolting to me...and I am <u>so</u> glad!) I think cream cheese is OK but I tend to buy the tasteless light stuff because I need to lose weight. If it suddenly vanished from the market I wouldn't shed any tears. It's pretty awful pap...but good for mixing with pasta or making a dry oatcake a bit more palatable.

    I went to Sainsbury's today to look for the stuff but they were sold out. When I asked the man when they'd next get it in (the shame!), he consulted his wee handheld machine thingie and said tomorrow or Wednesday. He added that it looked like a particularly big delivery of the stuff, so it was probably going straight into special offer (he guessed &pound;1 or 2 for &pound;2).
    So I'll have a look on Wednesday to see if his prediction is correct.
    Sad AND greedy. What a hopeless combination I am!!

    [​IMG]Following my threadkiller post above, I can confirm that Sainsbury's man was spot on. They have it at half price, 78p a tub :eek:)
    I've just devoured a whole tub of it with 5 hobnobs *blush*. Just gorgeous and much better than Nutella, as it doesn't stick to the roof of your mouth.
    Was rather hoping that I wouldn't like it as I'm trying to lose weight, and don't like cheese, but no such luck!

  11. Chuckles.....I like your thinking tarte....[​IMG]

    Given I need to lose weight too, I am so lucky that it doesn't appeal.
    However, I cooked a chicken last night.. (chicken's fairly healthy, right?) yet I just HAD to peel off all the hot, crispy chicken skin...and eat the lot. Unable to resist the best bit.....it was orgasmically good. Heavenly....and sod the calories. (It's a bit like Delia telling us to freeze left-over wine, silly woman...)
  12. I looked for some in Tesco a couple of days ago and they didn't have any! Is this discrimination? I can see my like another poster getting the old teaspoon out...but how many calories? I only have light Philly and not often as it always seems to go mouldy before we finish the packet.
